Precision Cut-Off Machine Qcut 200 A


The Qcut 200 A is a precision cut-off machine with up to 3 automatic axes for use with cut-off wheels up to 203 mm/8'' in size.

The Qcut 200 A is a compact, precision cut-off machine that provides exceptional flexibility and space utilization. It features up to three automatic axes (X, Y, Z) and offers a variety of cutting functions. Its modular design allows for optimal customization with numerous options and compatible clamping tools.

Intuitive and Simple Operation

The large 7" touch display is ergonomically arranged for easy operation using the user-friendly software. The joystick provides comfortable movement of the automatic axes, enhancing the overall user experience.

Automatic Cleaning Function

The machine features fully automatic cleaning using spiral nozzles in the cutting chamber. Cleaning can be activated individually and can start automatically after each cut-off if desired. Additionally, for a clear view, cleaning can also be activated during the cut-off operation.

Extensive Cutting Programs

Depending on the component's geometry, either the travel or chop cut is utilized to minimize the contact area between the component and the cut-off wheel. The step cut functions separate the workpiece layer by layer and optimize the angle of action for a material-friendly cut, making them particularly suitable for solid materials.
