AZCO Corp. (Fairfield, N.J.) has introduced a shear cut traveling knife assembly ideal for cutting material up to 1,400 mm/55 inches wide and 3 mm to 55 mm (0.1 to 2.2 inches) 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 that provides positive traction between the material and the drive system. A brushless servomotor is said to provide high accuracy and low maintenance. A color touch screen is used to set up and control the unit. PLC controls run the servomotor drive and the entire process. The unit operates only if material is present to be cut.
