A completely self-contained unit of heavy-duty construction.
The sheeter is built up with variable cut length for on-line or off-line production for alternative sheeting/batching of up to 6 streams side by side. The sheeter is equipped with servo drives - to change the cut length no gear wheel change is required.
The sheeter works with a clean shear cut. The cut is made between a rotary knife and a fixed knife. For normal sheeting operations, i.e. cut length in accordance with the print repeat, the unit is equipped for one cutting position with one cylinder.
For a sheeting job that requires a chip-out to get a cut length shorter than the print repeat - e.g. 12” to A4 - the unit is equipped for two cutting positions with two cylinders. One cylinder is cutting to size by chip-out and the other cylinder is cutting to sheet. The cut-off length of the chip is continuously adjustable.
The Star Wheel delivery is outstanding especially by the processing of a difficult product, because it is not sensitive to additional applications as e.g. adhesives, glacine windows, etc.
The finished product can be delivered in piles counted up to the required number of sheets on an elevating table, or it can be delivered shingled on the band.
