Cut Off Carriage Cutters, is a 3 or 4 cutter assembly.
The cutters keep rotating and come closer to part off the tube.
The cutting head is rotating around the tube. This method is used up to 75 mtr./min. of mill speed.
It is an effective method for cutting bigger diameter tubes and for tubes of higher wall thickness.
The performance of the C.O.C. Cutters depends upon alignment of the cutters in one plane.
Hence thickness of the cutters should be maintained within close tolerances.
Raw Material– Commonly used grades are H13, EN24 and 1.2714.
