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 programme 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 recall.
  • Cut-off wheel database – All Struers cut-off wheels are stored with recommended speed and
