X2 Cross Hatch Machine
The X2 Cross Hatch machine applies a precisely controlled surface finish to standard carbide Bodymaker punches. The term “cross hatch” comes from the x-pattern of the surface finish applied by the X2 machine, which has been proven beneficial in many ways to the can ironing or body making process.
Benefit of cross hatching include:
- Improved punch life
- Optimized Bodymaker punch stripping
- Better tear-off performance
X2 Cross Hatch Machine Features
The X2 Cross Hatch machine comes equipped with mounting hardware for a single diameter punch while the adjustable cam profile allows for same-diameter punches with variable lengths to be run. Mounting hardware for additional diameter punches is easily changed out. Air pressure is used to ensure a constant micro texture finish. This eliminates the possibility of inconsistent surfaces using a manual method. The IPS optimized diamond impregnated media (which comes in various grades) is ideally suited assuring a uniform cross hatch depth. The X2 is fully programmable and comes standard with a touch screen interface making changing programs quick and easy.
