The MACHINES is used for high volume slitting of foam sheets by cutting several blocks together in a circular movement. Blocks side trimmed on Vertical Cutter are slit in different thickness from 2 mm onwards in increments of 0.1 mm. The MACHINES has a cutting head, with a high tensioned Teflon coated knife guide placed horizontally. The endless knife rotates on a set of four, rubber lined dynamically balanced aluminium wheels. The band knife is continuously sharpened by a set of motorized cup polish wheels. The cutting head moves up & down on a set of precision vertical pillars.
The MACHINES has a round cutting table which moves in a circular motion between the above pillars. The table has optional vacuum arrangement to hold the blocks cutting, to avoid any lifting. The table is driven by a friction tyre & has a variable speed AC frequency drive to control the cutting speed between 0.5 to 5.5 rounds per minute. The MACHINES has a fully automatic operation & is controlled by a PLC controller & a Multi Programmable Touch Screen Display & Control Panel. This is the result of years of research & development giving a virtually trouble free operation. It has self diagnostic error detection & fault history maintenance.
