The Slotter in this machine is setup to center slot brake pads and is designed to perform a maximum of 3 slots per brake pad. The Chamfer machine in turn is designed to chamfer compound and simple angles.
Slot depth is adjustable depending on the customer’s specifications. The chamfering operation is accomplished using two chamfer wheels with angles as indicated in the specifications section. The wheels are adjustable +/- 5 degrees from perpendicular (Note: the +/- 5 degrees could be adjustable more or less depending on the size of the part and the shape of the fixture).
The slotter/chamfer machine is equipped with a variable-speed conveyor. The conveyor speed is adjustable for finer cuts or greater production speeds.
The machine is semi-automatic. An operator must place the parts on the fixtures in the correct orientation. The fixtures are attached to a chain conveyor that will carry the parts through the cutting zone
