The Model 576AC SEVERMASTER™ severs 2.0” to 6.63″ (50.8 to 168.4mm) diameter tubes and thin wall pipe. This machine enhances productivity by incorporation of the auto-cycle tool model and quick lock collet closure. A cam cycle tool bit feed mechanism, with adjustable depth of feed from .001” to .005” (.02 to .13mm), automatically returns the tool bit to the home position ready to start the next cut. The feed increment per revolution is adjustable to optimize the cutting speed relative to the material. The tool module also allows setting the start and finish cut positions to minimize the cycle time. A variable speed motor provides further cutting speed control for increased tool bit life and ID burr reduction. The quick lock mechanism actuates the collet with a single lever stroke for simple collet changes. The Model 576AC has a collet clamping length of 3.00” (76.2mm).
Tool bit options are available to minimize the burr on the mounting side or the drop-off side of the sever line and in different edge widths to match the tube wall thickness. The tool also incorporates mounting features to allow use of an SQM-2AC Tube Squaring Module for optimum burr free ends.
