On the Qcut 250 A (Brillant 240), you can slow the table feed rate down to 0.1 mm/sec and the automatic crossfeed table travel offers precision to 0.1 mm.
The manual chop saw lever utilizes a precise set of gears that results in an extremely smooth manual cutting process.
The manual chop saw lever can be easily locked into position with one hand by using the thumb button to electromechanically engage the brake.
The optional laser alignment tool aids in the precision of the section.
Operators of all strengths can replace the cut off wheel with the Easy Nut system.
Bright LED lights illuminate the cutting chamber.
Automatic Cutting Mode
Easily perform automatic X-cuts by lowering the wheel to the desired position and locking it into place. Then the table automatically drives the part through the cut off wheel.
Use pulse cutting to gently section your samples by letting the table pull the part away from the wheel and allowing the coolant to flush debris away and keep your part cool.
With the spacious cutting chamber and 8.8" (225 mm) of table travel you can perform longitudinal cuts.
Manual Cutting Mode
Simply use the manual chop saw lever to quickly perform a smooth Y-cut.
Enhance your efficiency by using the optional cross feed table to perform parallel cross sections.
Our extensive catalog of innovative clamping devices can also decrease your time spent repositioning your samples between sections.
Ports on both sides of the saw allow for sectioning of extremely long parts
