Thermocouple Cutting Machine

for orbital cutting and cut-to-length of mineral insulated thermocouples

With the »MTE-8« special machine, Metzner offers a fully automatic solution for cut-to-length and orbital cutting of mineral insulated thermocouples of up to 8mm diameter. Time-consuming preparations, like manual pre-cutting and straightening are eliminated by this converting unit.

To ensure optimal processing, mineral insulated thermocouples have to be arranged straight and twist-free. An individually adjustable straightening station, developed specially for wound mineral insulated thermocouples, deals with this process automatically on the run and with no lost time.

For up to 30mm total insulation stripping length – at both ends – the cutting machine guarantees a tolerance range of ± 0.15 mm. As well as the cutting-to-length, all the orbital cuts into the material are program-controlled and carried out with high precision. This minimises overheating, reduces burrs and thus provides a very good cut quality. Any dust that is created during the cutting can be removed from the machine by a powerful extraction system.

All the machine parameters such as depth of cut, penetration speed, material advance and straightening speeds are freely programmable.
