TRAVELING KNIFE

June 2, 2014

AZCO Corporation has designed a shear cut traveling knife assembly ideal for material 1400 mm wide and 3 mm-55 mm thick.  This cut-to-length unit is built to feed the material all the way through the knife assembly.  A precision ground urethane drive top roller supplies a force, which provides positive traction between the material and the drive system.  The brushless servo motor provides high accuracy and low maintenance.

A 1400 mm [55"] traveling knife assembly shear cuts the material to size. The knife assembly is servo driven with linear guides for extra strength and support.  Easy to use, the unit can be bolted right into an existing process.  A color touch screen is used to set up the unit.  PLC controls run the servo motor drive and the entire process.  To interface the unit to the process, a loop sensor is used.  When material is present, the unit will operate; if there is no material, it will wait.

Requires 110V AC single phase power, 15 amp current, and 80 psi compressed air.
