Life of the inserts...

Life of the inserts on EKF machine for chamfering stainless steel plate?  



Question from our customer:

We have conducted a successful demo at Thermotech Engineers with EKF on half cut SS pipes. The customer wants to know, for how much length will each edge of the inserts cut (approximately).

We had told the customer that the life varies depending on operator use & material but could no give him a figure. We request you to give us an approximation of the life of inserts on SS material.

30 – 60 Meters per side of an insert. Each insert has 3 sides.
