Traveling knife assembly.

Azco Corp. has introduced a modular traveling knife assembly for cut widths up to 5.5m/18'. It is available in either shear cut or crush cut, and is ideal for wide materials including carbon fiber, film, filter media, foam, foil, gaskets, laminates, medical devices, nonwovens, paper, rubber, and thin gauge metals. The rotary shear cut blade cuts against a hardened anvil. The crush cut blade is used for perforating, crush cutting, or score cutting the material. Two actuators are available, a pneumatic system or a digital electric drive package. The electric version can be supplied with either a step or servo motor drive; with or without the motor driver package. The cutting process starts with the material entering the unit up to the specified length. Then the clamp secures the material in place as the blade travels straight across the web for a clean cut. End-of-stroke sensors indicate when the cut has come to each end, which allows the unit to cut in either direction.
