A new multi-purpose profile edge polisher, the T58, completes Thibaut?s range of side polishers. Equipped with a touch sensitive graphics screen, this CNC machine is oriented towards greater thicknesses and responds better to specifics in terms of milling, thickness processing and productivity, Thibaut reports. The T58 features automatic tool changing, a T-shaped table with the possibility of mounting a turntable onto a pneumatic forklift for handling and six pneumatic jacks with crosspieces. An updated touch-sensitive numerical display and the use of icons for simple and precise handling make this machine user friendly. Operators can work with larger pieces, as the T58 handles running lengths of 3,800 mm. Since no handling between operations is necessary, the T58 shows productivity gains by regrouping many operations quickly and automatically.
