Benefits Of The PowerCUT™

BIG 8 Monobloc Cutting Heads

The newly developed large sized BIG 8 cutters which are integrated in super-precise housings are regrindable and allow a format change within only a few minutes.

Superflex

PowerCUT™ is now available in 3 “versions”. The “classic” – version whereas both cutting operations are executed by the precise, mechanical clamped MAWAG – cutters, the “flex” – version with a fast changeover for the height cut (2nd op) with the latest generation of our BIG8 monobloc cutting heads and now also as a “superflex” – version in which both operations are equipped with those fully automatised BIG8 cutting heads. watch the movie

Revolutionary Squaring Method

A slitter needs speed, especially when operating as an independent unit, serving more than 1 canmaking line. Our newly designed table 2 is now able to run most sheet sizes at a speed of 40 sheets per minute!

Nice side effect, no more dents in the, even thinnest and softest, material.

Scratch Free Sheet Handling

Higher speed and thinner material needs higher accuracy and brilliant surfaces. The sheets are constantly guided. Drop bars, step plates, infeed fingers and chaindogs are eliminated. Magnetic conveyors ensure smooth and safe sheet-, stripe- and blank- transport.

Safety + Accessibility

To avoid bulky covers we have included a reliable scanner safety device with two easy to setup scanning areas to trigger a warning (pause production) or emergency stop.

80 % Trim Volume Reduction

Complicated collecting and handling of trim strips is no longer necessary. Trim cutter‘s chop the trim strips to prevent jamming. After trimming the „left overs“ are very small and can be box collected or „lead“ away.

Accessories

Digital roller cutter adjusting unit

To adjust the roller cutters precisely and within shortest time we provide a digital roller cutter adjusting unit which can be mounted on the slitter. For first and second cutting operation, depending on the type of knives you are using.

Cutter grinding

The accuracy of the cut blanks highly depends on the status of the roller cutter knives. To avoid unprecise cutting and burrs, a semiannual or annual "sharpending" of the knives is a must. Best to be done with a precise and easy to use grinding unit.

Blank measuring unit

A good can starts with a good blank. To do important offline controls we provide the blank measuring unit to ensure that cutting tolerances are kept within the lmits.

Driven roller conveyor

The driven roller conveyor can be placed in front of the slitter to place ready to be cut sheets with a forklift. The pallet is transported by a driven roller system into slitter's downstacker.
