When narrow steel strips and flat bars, or similar material is to be beveled, there is sometimes a tendency for the width of the bevel to increase towards the end. A guide can be provided for use with the X-97 on workpieces with parallel edges.
When fitted with a circular control device the machine can be used for external beveling of circular workpieces. The device consists of a guide roller and adjuster. Settings are made on a graduated scale. The beveling circular discs can be used with diameters between 450-2000mm.
Lubrication of the beveling area prolongs the life of the cutting wheel. X-machines has therefore developed a spray lubrication unit that can be fitted on X-97 beveling machines. The lubrication is automatic and is only active when there is material in the machine.
The position of the machine can be adjusted to suit the shape, size and weight of the workpiece. It can stand in a stationary position, or it can be suspended for movement either in ordinary position or upside-down. If the machine is suspended, it can be made to move itself along the workpiece, instead of feeding the workpiece through the machine.
