Servo Auto Champ 3

The Servo Auto Champ 3 is a cost effective method to chamfer large volumes of bars and requires no change parts. Just set it up for the desired size and push the bar to the stock stop. The bar is detected, clamped, PRECISION CHAMFERED and released automatically! Cycle times of just 4-8 seconds once the bar is detected at the material stop. The actual cycle time is dependent on material and depth of cut.

The JF Berns Company has over 25 years of chamfering experience with over 1,000 chamfering machines sold. The Servo Auto Champ 3 has the ability to chamfer a wide range of materials. Send us a sample and we can test cut your material at our facility.
