High Impact Polystyrene Extruders Can Increase Production

Wednesday, November 04, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

High impact polystyrene (HIPS) manufacturers can increase production and reduce the waste of their sheet lines by replacing conventional drop shear equipment with the dual knife rotary technology of the MAXSON SDFK Sheeter.

The dual knife rotary cutting action eliminates the skive along the leading and trailing edge on thicknesses up to 0.125" (3.2 mm) thick, without producing slivers. Using an exclusive clash adjustment, the Operator can safely adjust the cross cutting blades while the cutter is running, by transversely shifting the upper cylinder across the width of the cutter to increase the knife clash, cleaning any fuzziness of the cross cut.

Able to run up to 300 fpm (90 mpm), the SDFK Sheeter can follow the extruder’s line speed and with its servo drive system maintains +/- 0.015” (+/- 0.38 mm) cut off accuracy. Equipped with an in line slitter section that permits multiple pile work across the SDFK Sheeter’s width, finished sizes that require no secondary trimming are delivered.
