Recognizing an industry-wide need for experienced sewer line tap cutters, Vortex Companies recently announced the launch of the Vortex Tap Cutting Institute. Located at the Vortex Products facility in Greenville, South Carolina, the Tap Cutting Institute features a fully functional robotics simulator to teach individuals how to cut taps without the risk of damaging pipe or liners.

“Proper lateral reinstatement is a critical part of the sewer rehab process,” says Mike Vellano, CEO of Vortex Companies. “The bottom line is that there simply aren’t enough experienced tap cutters in our industry, and we are in a great position to provide training to anyone who wants to learn.”

“Through the Tap Cutting Institute, we’ve made the training affordable to individuals who want to expand their capabilities and learn the tap cutting trade, or for contractors who want to send their technicians here to hone their skills,” says Kenny Cochrane, VP, Schwalm Products at Vortex.

Although tap-cutting is only small part of a Schwalm robot’s capabilities, it represents the bulk of its workload.
