Rush Machinery's new production-rated carbide rod cutoff machine is for the carbide tool and carbide rod manufacturing industries. The Auto-Cut, a CNC carbide rod cutoff machine, can double the production rate for cutting carbide rod when compared to manual cutoff machines. Its CNC controls are designed for ease of use with a touchscreen operator interface. Parameters can be quickly set for rod diameter and length. The machine automatically loads and cuts rods for a large-capacity magazine. Capacity of the cutoff machine is 0.055" (1.4 mm) to 1 9/16" (40 mm) diameter rod, as much as 16" long and comes standard with a flood coolant system.
