Rush Machinery offers “Auto-Cut,” a CNC carbide rod cutoff machine for the carbide tool and carbide rod manufacturing industries. The machine can double the production rate for cutting carbide and hardened steel rod when compared with manual cutoff machines.

It has an easy-to-use CNC 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 “Auto-Cut” is 0.055” (1.4mm) to 1-9/16” (40mm) diameter carbide rod, up to 16” long, and it 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.

  • cutoff

    cutoff

    Step that prepares a slug, blank or other workpiece for machining or other processing by separating it from the original stock. Performed on lathes, chucking machines, automatic screw machines and other turning machines. Also performed on milling machines, machining centers with slitting saws and sawing machines with cold (circular) saws, hacksaws, bandsaws or abrasive cutoff saws. See saw, sawing machine; turning.
