ANAB X8 is a newly developed fully automatic chainsaw sharpening machine with a completely new offset for the grinding and new way of grinding the chains by doing first one side of the chain then the other side of the chain which results in a chain that lasts longer and is quicker to sharpen than any other machine on the market. It is the correct choice for any high-performance sharpener, forest workers or retailers of products that require the highest level of sharpening. It has an integrated water-cooling system that is lit by a LED light and enables the best wet-sharpening results and a longer chain lifetime for chainsaw and harvester chains. The water-cooling system cools the chain well throughout the entire sharpening process, which means the chain retains its sharpness for up to 30% longer compared to other water-cooled machines, and in addition to extended working time the water-cooling system enables a fast-sharpening speed which increases productivity.

The machine automatically senses whether teeth are positioned left or right, cutting teeth and depth gauge are sharpened simultaneously, and in fact, the sharpening process is not even interrupted in the event of irregular teeth frequency, thanks to our patented automatic tooth-gap control system.

ANAB X8 is constructed and calibrated for use with CBN grinding wheels. These wheels are made of cubic boron nitride, the world’s second-hardest material that nevertheless has exceptional thermal conductivity. This makes them the preferred choice for all our machines.
