CU Automatic Lathe Undercutter

Automatic Undercutter Allows Your People To Do More…

Set it up, Turn it on and Walk Away!

Designed specifically for shops undercutting small quantities of a wide range of DC motors, including traction motors, the CU Automatic Undercutter mounts on your existing lathe. It consists of three components; an indexing unit, a pedestal PLC controller, and the Undercutting head with its floating spindle and sensor system. Laser technology is used to detect each mica slot and automatically align the saw.
