ACS® Production Systems for Sawing Tubes, Rods and Profiles

We do things faster! Into the future at high speed. Our systems are fully automated, high-precision circular cold saws.

Our basic ACS® “sawing” version alone performs everything from single to septuple cut beautifully. Thanks to water-cooled servo technology, the material can be cut with continuously adjustable sawing power and extremely short sawing cycles, some of them less than one second. During the entire manufacturing process, the cutting speed, tool clamping pressure and sawblade vibration are continuously calculated and monitored. RATTUNDE sets global standards for reliability, productivity and quality. Precision electronics combined with proprietary software developed specifically for our systems guarantees accurate repeatability as well as minimal set-up and unit costs. Our machines produce outstanding results with thin-walled tubing as well. Extensive vertical integration and our own in-house research and development department enable us to influence practically all manufacturing processes to the fullest extent. That’s why we also equip our production systems with proprietary clamping and machining tools. Whether you want to process steel, stainless steel or non-ferrous metals, you’ll enjoy success with our equipment.

End machining of tubes and rods

The ACS®+CFM and ACS®+CFMcurve production systems automatically saw master lengths/fixed lengths in workpieces of any length and transfer these automatically to a subsequent machining process, such as end machining of both ends (CFM or CFMcurve). The extensive range of machining options includes thread cutting, drilling, profile turning, groove cutting, radius chamfering and angled chamfering. Via minimal lubrication directly at the cutting edge of the tool, the system also enables you to achieve maximum quality and tool life when milling out the inside of a workpiece. User interfaces provide the operator with reliable guidance and ensure fast product set-up even with complex part geometry. The use of state-of-the-art machine control systems enables the seamless integration of every process in the machine design. For even greater process reliability in customer operations, we offer you extensive training for your operating and maintenance staff as well as product optimization. Comprehensive customer service around the globe completes our program.
