This new saw is ideal for cutting hydraulic and industrial hoses with a capacity of up to a max diameter of 160 mm (6.299").
TF6 is designed to make cutting hose easy for the operator while still being suitable for cutting big spiral hoses and in series.

TF6 is provided with a 11 kW self-braking motor, electric control by pedal, fume extractor connection, drawer for internal cleaning and self-centering system allowing the proper positioning of the hose during the cutting process. The cutting blade is a 650 mm diameter and is contained in a specific area concealed away from the rest of the machine; the cutting area is secured by a metallic protection device for the operator's safety.
The machine is controlled by a PLC with 7" colour touch screen that gives the opportunity to create and save recipes, setting the hose diameter. This is the key feature allowing the saw to function in a fast forward phase and a slow cutting phase, depending on the hose being cut - The saws ability to select the optimal cutting speed saves both production time and blade life!
