Maxson Board Sheeter Said to Enhance Productivity

 

WESTERLY, RI | Maxson Automatic Machinery offers a dual-knife rotary sheeter equipped with productivity enhancement features for converters and printers of board grades. Company says the sheeter’s low-inertia knife cylinders allow high speeds on short cutoffs, yet permits knife loading to 1,000 lbs/3,300 sq ft (800 gpm2). Speeds to 1,300 fpm (396 mpm) can be achieved on machines to 90 in. (2,286 mm) wide.

Two shaftless self-loading roll stands cradle rolls weighing to 10,000 lbs (4,545 kg) in position while the sheeter is running. The overhead automatic splicing system joins the end of one roll to the beginning of the other while the sheeter speed exceeds 800 fpm (240 mpm), eliminating downtime associated with roll changes.

Reportedly, using the sheeter’s “continuous run” feature and rapid pallet discharge system maximizes production by removing a full skid and inserting an empty pallet while the operation continues, without the loss of any acceptable sheets.
