The carried out investigations and practice established that the quality of welded joints of pipelines, meeting the modern requirements largely depends on the quality of treatment of ends of groove edges of their butt joints prior to welding and on the quality of assembly of pipeline components directly before welding. The paper presents the results of experimental, technological and design works carried out at the Scientific and Engineering Center of Welding and Control in the Field of Nuclear Energy, on creating a facing tool for metal pipes of a diameter from 76 to 108 mm. It is shown that, in comparison with the best foreign analogues, the designed facing tool has a number of significant technological and operational advantages. 7 Ref., 2 Tabl., 1 Fig.
