Abrasive cut-off machines

In terms of abrasive cut-off machines BRAUN offers various cutting methods, depending on the type, shape and size of the material to be cut as well as the specific application (e.g. stand-alone machine or machine integrated in a line for continuous production in a rolling mill). The cutting method will significantly determine the design of the abrasive cut-off machine and the movements of the cut-off wheel and the material to be cut.

Abrasive cut-off machines work quickly and precisely, producing clean cutting edges.

BRAUN is a specialist for cut-off machines with cutting wheels in dimensions from 400 to 2000 mm.

 

Abrasive cutting - an advanced and flexible technology

  • extremely clean and fast
  • excellent quality of the cut-off material
  • quick and easy retooling
  • maximum throughput, also in case of continuous operation
  • minimum noise level
  • universally applicable, even for very hard steels and nonferrous metal alloys,
  • as well as critical materials (such as titanium)
  • cutting of the workpiece in hot or cold state
  • flexible machine conception - proven design also for flat foundations
  • dry cutting without emulsion for almost all applications
  • fully automatic operation including visualization and data logging
  • separation of scrap pieces according to grades (e.g. to alloys)

Machine design versions

  • chop cutting (for single bars and narrow layers)
  • traverse cutting (for wide layers, slabs, plates and sheets)
  • rotary cutting (for tubes)
  • index cutting (for workpieces having a large diameter)

BRAUN - competence of abrasive cutting
