WESTERLY, RI | Maxson Automatic Machinery offers a dual knife rotary sheeter equipped with productivity enhancement features for converters and printers of board grades. Has low inertia knife cylinders that allow high speed on short cutoffs, yet permits knife loading up to 1,000 lb/3,300 ft2 (800 gpm2). Speeds to 1,300 fpm (396 mpm) are achievable on machines up to 90 in. (2,286 mm) wide.
Two shaftless self-loading roll stands cradle rolls weighing up to 10,000 lb (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) to eliminate down time associated with roll changes. Continuous run feature and rapid pallet discharge system is said to maximize production by removing a full skid and inserting an empty pallet while the operation continues, without the loss of acceptable sheets.
