X2 Cross Hatch Machine
The X2 Cross Hatch machine applies a precision-controlled and repeatable surface finish to Bodymaker punches. The X2 Cross Hatch Machine controls all of the key cross-hatching variables, including (1) Application Pressure, (2) Cross Hatch Angle, (3) Diamond Media Roughness, (4) Lift-off / Touch-down points, and (5) Operator Influence. More than 100 machines have been sold globally, with the X2 becoming the standard cross-hatching machine for the can making industry.
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.
