An electrode, held in the cutting head of the disintegrator, vibrates to create precise cuts while a coolant is pumped through the electrode to wash away the powdered metal and keep the part cool. Metal disintegrators manufactured by Cammann Inc. are primarily used for tap removal, stud removal, drill removal and seized or broken bolts.
About Metal Disintegration
The cutting action of a metal disintegrator is accomplished by creating a series of intermittent electric arcs that break down the hardest metals into minute particles.
