Challenge

Tubes are cut one at a time using a standard abrasive cutting saw which leaves burrs. Requires secondary process of wire brushing and tumbling to deburr tubes and remove any debris. Older machines have poor accuracy and outdated safety features. Debris from abrasive cuts cause frequent maintenance issues.

Design a process that can cut multiple tubes burr free simultaneously without damage from debris. Reduce the number of steps in the production process. Provide a machine that won’t deteriorate over time.

Solution

solution Tridex Technology CS1-E Burr-Free Electrochemical Cutoff Machine

ECG provides a precise cut free from burrs, stress, and mechanical distortions. Stainless steel design is resistant to corrosion, debris, and provides for simple maintenance. Configurable as right or left handed allowing one operator to run multiple machines at once.

 

  • Improves production times by eliminating the need for secondary operations such as deburring, wire brushing, and tumbling.
  • Filter system removes small debris preventing damage to the material or machine.
  • The Electrochemical Grinding (ECG) process removes material with low cutting force increasing wheel life and providing a burr free, stress free part with no heat affected zone.
