Huge capacity – small footprint

Magnutom is designed to deliver high capacity cutting without compromising valuable floor space. With a compact and streamlined footprint of just 2.6 m2 Magnutom has the largest cutting table in its class. The left-hand cutting table on the fixed table version can be removed for additional space.

Maximum uptime – minimum maintenance

Magnutom can withstand tough conditions, as all machine parts are CAE-stress tested to ensure that they can withstand continuous cutting. The straightforward design, robust frame, oversized machine parts and DirectDrive belt-less transmission ensure maximum efficiency and operation .

Easy to use

Intuitive, icon-based user interface, automatic programming, multifunction knob and
joystick control makes the Magnutom user friendly. The user friendliness allows for quick training and operation thus reducing the time needed to acquire high quality specimens.
