WESTERLY, RI | Maxson Automatic Machinery offers a dual knife rotary sheeter equipped with productivity enhancement features specifically designed for folding carton operations. The sheeter’s low inertia knife cylinders are said to allow high speed on short cut offs, yet permit knife loading up to 1,000 lb/3,300 sq ft. Speeds to 1,300 fpm reportedly can be achieved on machines up to 90 in. wide.
Two shaftless self-loading roll stands cradle rolls weighing up to 10,000 lb 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, eliminating down time associated with roll changes.
