CS1-E Burr-Free ECG Cutoff Machine

The Tridex CS1-E Burr Free Electrochemical (ECG) Cutoff Machine features completely burr-free cutting virtually eliminating the need for deburring or other corrective secondary operations and reducing scrap. Almost all metals can be cut burr-free with ECG making it an attractive option for cutting medical tubing. Increasing efficiency, the CS1-E can cut multiple bars or tubes per cycle only limited by the part diameter.
