Axitom is a fully automatic cut-off machine designed for maximum user-friendliness. Axitom is ideal for the production floor with its very large cutting table and easy to use controls. The spacious cutting chamber is equipped with two automatic cutting tables. The x-table for serial cutting of parallel sections and the y-table for cutting of extra deep workpieces. Cutting parameters such as feed speed, force and stop position are easily controlled using the multifunction knob.


Multi-function flexibility

Axitom is ideal for cutting the hardest materials and sectioning of large workpieces. It features four programmed MultiCut modes, one of which interacts with the built-in database function to enable fast, productivity-enhancing changes between cutting methods.

Easy to use

The robust joystick is designed for production environments and can be moved in three different axes to control the cut-off wheel and both the x- and y-table. The Multifunction knob is used for setting all cutting parameters, and can be operated even with working gloves. A large graphical display with a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels enables display of all cutting parameters at a single glance, even at a distance.

Easy machine care

AxioWash* is an automatic chamber cleaning function that can be used every day to keep the machine in optimal working condition. All it requires from the user is cleaning of the horizontal surfaces.

  • Axitom ExciCut

    ExciCut – cutting of the hardest materials

    ExciCut uses an oscillating movement of the cut-off wheel to reduce the contact area
    between the cut-off wheel and workpiece. This enables cutting of very hard materials in very large sizes, and also the use of harder cut-off wheels, which increases the lifetime of the wheels, thus reducing costs.

  • Axitom AxioCut Step

    AxioCut – sectioning of extra large workpieces

    AxioCut adds 150 mm cutting capacity for extra large workpieces. The field-upgradable option includes Step cutting for very fast cutting combined with better wheel economy.

  • Axitom Direct Cut


    Classic cutting mode, where the cut-off wheel moves straight down into the workpiece using the pre-set feed speed.

  • Axitom MultiCut


    Automatic serial cutting.

  • Axitom OptiFeed

    OptiFeed – intelligent feed control

    OptiFeed optimizes the feed speed without sacrificing the quality of the cut or good wheel economy. During cutting, Axitom continuously measures the load on the cutting arm. As soon as the pre-set force limit is reached, the feed speed is reduced to avoid damage. The feed rate is increased again once the force decreases again.
