Fox® Air Float Cut-Off Machine 6PMC-AF

The Fox® Air Float Cut-Off machine is ideal for gate and riser removal on small to medium size castings, or castings on runner bars or trees. The system excels at cutting castings produced in small to medium runs, because fixtures are easy to change. The machine also is well suited for cutting off castings that are too heavy for operators to handle, as the air float feature makes moving several hundred pounds almost effortless.
