The High Speed "Finish Line" Cutter has been designed to be used with the HD-25 Workhorse laminator, the 30" High Speed Thoroughbred laminator, or any other 30" laminating system.
An integrated fiber optic sensor precisely activates the shearing blade as it senses the leading and trailing edges of each sheet to be cut. Speed is easily adjustable up to 150 fpm without stopping the machine during operation. The upper and lower cutter blades are interchangeable, making the cutter economical to operate. A feed table supports the web during the threading, and handy feed guides are conveniently adjusted from side to side to ensure precise web travel into the cutter.
Unlike other competitive equipment, compressed air is not required. The easy-to-use keypad adds to the all over user friendliness of this cutter. A standard, simple 115V, 15-amp outlet is all that is needed to begin operating this sleek, new, high-speed machine.
Variable speed cutter operates at any speed up to 150 fpm (actual output may vary depending on number of cuts per minute).
Levers open & close feed rollers and hold the rollers open while you thread and straighten the web.
The feed table supports the web during threading and the guides are easily adjusted to ensure precise web travel.
The unit's electrical operation is very convenient, only requiring a 115V, 15 amp outlet or depending on model, 208V-240V single phase, 50/60 cycle, 13 amp outlet.
The control panel displays all settings before, during, and after operation (except during adjustment of a particular function).
The speed can be easily adjusted during operation.
The cutting blades are interchangeable; if the blades become dull, they can be easily switched from top to bottom for a new cutting edge.
Stand and casters are included.
Made in the U.S.A. means quality, better service, and faster parts availability.
An extruded aluminum stand is an option as well as locking casters for easy and fast setup.
Variable speed power exit table can be adjusted from 0 to 150 fpm.
The Automatic Feeder is completely self-contained and mounted on casters for easy movement. It is precision engineered to a high standard and is quick and easy to set up with a minimum of adjustments.
Sheets are separated at the front by blowers and forwarded by a suction drum mounted over the pile. An adjustable tongue front with integral blowers controls the top sheets in the pile. Suction and blow are delivered by a pump mounted on the frame.
The pile table is motorized (hoist) and controlled by a single Up/Down switch. An adjustable limit switch controls the pile height automatically while running.
The side register for feed guidance is mounted above a wide transport belt positioned according to paper size. An independent micro-screw enables sheets to be exactly aligned.
Controls for main switch On/Off, speed adjustment and On/Off switch for suction roll and belt-drive are located on a central panel.
Maximum pile height 25.75"
Maximum sheet size (without extension table) 29 3/8" x 25.25"
Side register for feed guidance
Easy-to-use on/off controls, speed adjustment, and on/off for suction roll and belt-drive controls
