Our scrap cutting machines are designed to contribute to the safety of your operation. Scrap is cut into manageable lengths for regrinding or removal. They eliminate the need for cutting the product with saws or shears and the injuries associated with these methods. Our optional accumulator keeps scrap off of the floor, preventing tripping and slipping hazards. They also reduce the man-hours required during product set-up.
The design of our machine incorporates two knives mounted in rotating shafts. Zero backlash gearing connects the shafts. This causes the material to be cut in a shearing action. The knives are manufactured from Hardened Tool Steel and can be sharpened.
The machine has adjustment to work at most product flight line heights. A speed potentiometer varies the speed of the 5 horsepower DC motor to match the product speed. Speeds up to 240 feet per minute can be accommodated. An adjustable timer is used to vary the length of the scrap to suit the customer’s needs.
We are able to supply a variety of options for this machine. The frame can be supplied with casters to allow either in-line or cross-line movement of the machine. Another frame option is a swing-frame arrangement, which swings the entire machine out of the product line. An optional accumulator table is available to capture the scrap until it can be transferred to a rack or cart. The table has a pneumatic dump action to make this a fast and convenient operation.
The machine is fully guarded and interlocked to guarantee safe operation.
