MAXSON AUTOMATIC MACHINERY COMPANY (Westerly, RI USA) April 3, 2007 -- will debut the MDH Sheeter with a Dual Position Roll Stand at the CMM International 2007 from 04 – 07 June 2007 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont IL. The dual knife rotary sheeter can be seen in operation at Booth #3027.
The Dual Position Roll Stand is able to handle two rolls. Each position can lift a roll up to 84” (2134 mm) in diameter and up to 7,000 pounds (3,180 kg) in weight at speeds of up to 3000 fpm (914 mpm). Hydraulically powered, each position loads a roll by lowering both arms and then moving each toward the roll. Sufficient clamping pressure is exerted to drive the chucks into the core.
The cutter’s dual knife technology allows for heavy cutting loads on up to 0.040” thick (1000 gsm) material while maintaining accuracies of + 0.015” on sheet lengths and requiring no squareness adjustment. Available in trim widths up to 65” (1651 mm) the cutter’s standard configuration allows for a 16” – 65” (407 – 1651 mm) cut off, although extended lengths and shorter digital sizes can be accommodated.
The delivery system is outfitted with a reject gate that can divert off standard material from the stacker and can productively run lightweight grades of paper as easily as board. A “continuous run” feature which permits the Operator to offload piles from the stacker without stopping the machine or losing sheets is available to enhance production.
