The chamfering machine automatically feeds the carbide rods to the processing station. The entire process runs fully automatically. The rods can be cut off, chamfered and slit. The finished rod is then placed in a cassette which is transported out of the system by a robot or by hand. In order to keep the cycle time to a minimum, several rods are always processed at any one time.
The internal handling takes place with a vacuum portal. The entire processing centre is a closed system and is equipped with a central exhaust connection for an exhaust system.
