Cutting system.

An elastomer cutting system that utilizes electrically heated tools is featured in the company's two-page bulletin. As a state-of-the-art approach to thermocutting, the firm's system is said to have been designed especially for the rubber roller industry to provide an advantageous method of machining elastomers in operations such as single-pass grooving, and rapid removal of excess material prior to final grinding. A custom designed tool post can either be permanently bolted onto the main operating machine, such as a lathe, or can serve as a quickly removable attachment to a grinding station, etc. Flexible design of the tool holding assembly is said to accommodate tools with a wide array of shapes and sizes, and allows for easy position adjustment for almost any cutting operation. The company's patented blades are said to be very durable and concentrate heat specifically on the very cutting edge, thus ensuring smoke-free operation, according to the literature. Thanks to this new technology, customers are said to increase productivity, reduce cleanup time, and save on labor and energy costs, according to the firm. With this machine, roughing is said to take minutes instead of hours. The system is said to efficiently remove excess elastomer prior to the final grinding.
