To machine has been designed to cut material up to 150mm wide and up to 10 reels at a time.
The material is fed into a guide feeder which grabs the material and moves it along automatically and in sync to the cutting tool. The cutting tool is in two seperate parts ( male and female and together they slide into the cutting head and securely bolted in. The safety doors are closed and the machine can be turned on. The operator will check to see the cutting gap between each stroke and adjust accordingly by adjusting the gap smaller or larger using the adjuster at the side of the feeder. The operator may have to do this a few times to be satisfied prior to full production run. When operator is ready he will switch machine on and start cutting material. The automatic batch counter will record how many strokes have been made and the number of pieces cut easily recorded. The machine can stroke per second and produce 3600 pieces per minute - example of one of our tools 6 designs on 1 tool cutting ten reels )
The cut product drops through the cutting tool into a collecting box underneath machine. This can be removed safely and product checked while machine still operating.
The waste runs along the conveyor and at the same speed of the machine enabling it to wound onto the rewinder and will automatically stop when full.
