Secotom

Advanced precision cutting machine with large capacity and application flexibility

Secotom

  • Cutting capacity 50 x 165 mm.
  • Automatic precision cutting machine
  • Cut-off wheel size 75 – 203 mm/ 3- 8” dia.
  • Intuitive user interface for easy operation
  • Ultra-flexible T-slot table for precision cutting
  • Automatic X-movement for cutting series
  • Laser light for precise positioning

The very first Secotom precision cutting machine was launched in 2001 and became an immediate success. Since then, thousands of Secotoms have left our production to serve laboratories worldwide. An intuitive user interface means that hardly any training is required. The optional automatic X-movement supersedes time-wasting re-positioning, and a movable T-slot table allows for sectioning a range of sizes and shapes. Secotom contains multiple additional features such as a laser light, an ExciCut mode for hard materials, and intelligent feed control.

Scarcely any training is required due to the easy settings with an intuitive user interface

A simple user interface and a color display make for ultra-easy operation. There are no complex menus. Set the parameters with a multifunction knob and use the joystick for fast positioning of the workpiece, as well as automatic height adjustment of the cut-off wheel. That’s it.

Re-positioning of a workpiece is superseded by the automatic X-movement

Make a series of cuts without wasting time on re-positioning your workpiece, with the optional X-movement. The table has 40 mm movement, and you can choose up to four slides of different thicknesses.

Achieve the right position on the first attempt with a little help from the positioning laser light

Positioning can be time-consuming, but the positioning laser light on Secotom makes the job much easier by pointing out the position for your section. Use the laser light in combination with the joystick for easy positioning.

Section a wide range of sizes and shapes with ultra-flexible and movable T-slot table

The cutting table in Secotom allows you both ultra-precision and flexibility for a wide range sizes and shapes. You are able to section large and deep workpieces (up to 70 mm / 2.8” diameter or 165 x 50 mm / 6.5”x2). The table has 8 mm t-slots and you can choose between a wide range of clamping tools to find just the right fit for your cut and the highest degree of precision.

Key features for the optimal precision cut:

  • Key feature

    Laser light points out the position for your cut

    The laser light is a great help when clamping, as it points out the position for your cut. This makes positioning easy and fast.

    Large, movable table for sectioning large and deep workpieces

    The cutting table measures 258 x 184 mm / 12.2" x 7.2" and is ideal for sectioning large and deep workpieces. The flexibility of this large cutting table makes it optimal for clamping.

    Cut-off wheel height adjustment

    The cut-off wheel in Secotom can be height adjusted to a range of 40 mm (1.6") which makes it possible to use a variety of clamping tools and stands for dovetail specimen holders. In addition, it enables the use of a large variety of cut-off wheel sizes, and makes it easy to compensate for wheel wear.

    Build-in recirculation cooling tank for a smaller footprint

    The build-in recirculation tank grants you a smaller footprint and better accessibility. The tank has a barrier inside to catch the largest cutting debris which reduces blockage of the cooling nozzles.

    ExciCut mode for hard materials minimizes the risk of thermal damage

    ExciCut is used when sectioning extremely hard materials that cannot be sectioned directly, minimizing the risk of thermal damage of the workpiece. ExciCut works by moving the cut-off wheel up and down as the cutting table moves forward. This ensures that a small contact area between the cut-off wheel and the workpiece and provides better access for the coolant.

    OptiFeed intelligent feed control to avoid motor overload

    Sectioning irregular sized workpieces can be difficult, as the risk of damage to the workpiece or the cut-off wheel is high. As the contact area between the workpiece and wheel gets larger, the force increases to maintain the preset feed speed, and this may overload the cut-off machine. But thanks to OptiFeed, the feed speed is automatically reduced in this situation, and when the contact area gets smaller again, the feed speed is automatically increased to the preset maximum.

    Direct connection to external exhaust system

    Sectioning certain materials may produce both harmful and unpleasant fumes. For a healthier environment, Secotom is prepared for direct connection to an external exhaust system, in line with our general recommendation to install an exhaust from the cutting chamber.

    Optional Manual Dresser

    The manual dresser makes it easy to dress diamond and CBN cut-off wheels.
    The cutting ability gradually reduces when sectioning, and the cut-off wheel rim will appear shiny because of the workpiece’s material deposits on the wheel surface and wear on the abrasive. The cutting ability can be restored by dressing, and the manual dresser makes it easy. You can even dress while sectioning to ensure the best result.
