ELITE CU mini 1200. MACHINE BASIS.

The ELITE model CU mini 1200 is our smallest series of grinding machines for knives blades sharpening, which allow to sharpen knives up to 1230 mm long, with high removal rates.

Fully automatic, simple, compact and economical machine that requires a low maintenance.

With its powerful grinding motor and its vibration free system, it allows a good surface finish with good grinding times for its size.

We have analyzed the work cycle of a sharpening workshop to optimize the use of the machine. The result is a control panel with color touch screen and most of the program of our largest blade sharpener: the ELITE model CU PRO. Inside there is a powerful control with 1 CNC axis, so that the sharpening cycle is automatic and quality.

Once the grinding cycle is completed, you can select to activate the fine finishing cycle to obtain the highest quality and minimum surface roughness of the tool grinded.

Magnetic chuck for holding the knives blades

Magnetic chuck for blades that can be magnetized and demagnetized from the control panel. The magnetic chuck is of the electro-permanent type, so it only consumes energy when magnetizing or demagnetizing. It incorporates threaded holes to be able to fix other types of supports or parts that are not magnetizable.

Perfect match
