Quartz bar aligning

In the production of oscillators and filters the cutting of blanks from bars is an essential step for achieving the right cutting angle of the blanks that influences the temperature behavior of the final product.

For aligning the quartz bars in the saw an X-ray measurement is required. Since the bars are not exactly the same, each bar must be aligned individually.  

Slicing of quartz bars is most effective when a high number of bars can be processed in one single step. Our machine is a special design for building stacks of up to 6×5 lumbered quartz bars.
Bars are filled into a magazine and are then automatically transported, measured, X-ray adjusted and then pressed against and fixated into a stack. UV-light is used to cure the adhesive glue.
