TechCut 5x™ Precision High Speed Saw


The TechCut 5x™ precision high-speed saw is a versatile, programmable machine designed to cut a wide variety and size of materials. It automatically sections materials at high speeds, increasing sample throughput. The PLC-based system controls sample feed rate, distance and force. Closed-loop monitoring of the blade and table optimizes cutting performance and minimizes blade breakage by automatically adjusting the feed rate when variations in sample material or thickness are detected. When sectioning is complete, the table automatically retracts the sample to the home position and stops blade rotation and coolant flow. The unique fixturing system allows for easy changes between the T-Slot Table and the X-Axis Tables. Both tables offer a variety of convenient table-specific fixture options.
