FAIRFIELD, NJ | AZCO Corp. has designed a precision, single-surface indexing system for feeding and cutting flexible materials to length. This is recommended for applications in which material can only be contacted on one side. A vacuum transfer system is controlled by a servo motor, and company says a SUR-CUT modular knife assembly cuts the material to a high accuracy of +/-0.01 in.
The unit can be a slave to a process by creating a loop from the end of the process, or an unwind can be added for materials on a roll. Optional takeaway conveyors reportedly make it easy for the cut product to be handled by operators or placed into stacks automatically.
Other reported benefits of the free-standing unit: The vacuum generator is totally enclosed and quiet; simple-to-operate color touch screen is mounted on a remote arm for easy access; and a fiber optic eye registration system is available.
