2 Rod “Auto-Cut” CNC Carbide Cut-Off Machine

The 2 Rod “Auto-Cut” CNC Carbide Cut-Off Machine automatically cuts carbide rod into precision lengths. This production machine, designed for cutting tool manufacturers and carbide rod processors, has a large-capacity magazine and an automatic loader to provide hours of unattended operation.


The 2 Rod “Auto-Cut” can double the production rate for cutting carbide and hardened steel rod when compared with manual cut-off machines. It has easy to use CNCs with a touch screen operator interface. Parameters can be quickly set for rod diameter and length. The machine automatically loads and cuts rods from a large capacity magazine. Capacity of the 2 Rod “Auto-Cut” is 0.079” (2mm) to 0.787” (20mm) diameter rod, up to 15¾” (400mm) long, or 0.079” to 1.575” for single rod, and comes standard with a flood coolant system.

Related Glossary Terms

  • computer numerical control ( CNC)

    computer numerical control ( CNC)

    Microprocessor-based controller dedicated to a machine tool that permits the creation or modification of parts. Programmed numerical control activates the machine’s servos and spindle drives and controls the various machining operations. See DNC, direct numerical control; NC, numerical control.

  • coolant

    coolant

    Fluid that reduces temperature buildup at the tool/workpiece interface during machining. Normally takes the form of a liquid such as soluble or chemical mixtures (semisynthetic, synthetic) but can be pressurized air or other gas. Because of water’s ability to absorb great quantities of heat, it is widely used as a coolant and vehicle for various cutting compounds, with the water-to-compound ratio varying with the machining task. See cutting fluid; semisynthetic cutting fluid; soluble-oil cutting fluid; synthetic cutting fluid.
