Discotom-10 cutting machine

a universal high-precision cutting machine with automatic table feed in x and y axes

  • VarioSpeed (Discotom-100) – the cut-off wheel speed can be adjusted from 1.500 to 3.000 rpm to optimise for material hardness and application.
  • OptiFeed – ensures the correct feed speed without compromising cut quality or wheel economy.
  • AxioWash – automatic cleaning program to clean the inside of the machine.
  • ExciCut – speeds up manual cutting of very hard materials.
  • Method database – store up to 20 cutting methods for easy retrieval.
  • Cut-off wheel database – All Struers’ cut-off wheels are stored with recommended rotational speed and
    wheel thickness.
