The draw knife cutter is designed to reliably and economically cut off continuous ribbons of stock after the desired payout is reached.
This machine can be retrofitted to most batch off systems and works best with an automatic pick-off and indexing pallet conveyor, providing total automation to the final batch off process.
This stacker is at the end of the batch off system and accepts stock from the cooling rack drive section manually or with an automatic pick-off.
The pallet conveyor unit is designed to automatically shift empty or full pallets of wig wagged rubber from the empty skid position to the load position and then to the full or unload position at the stacking end of the batch off machine.
When the skid conveyor is purchased with a batch off having a high accuracy stacker, a lift unit is furnished.
Many other components are available for retrofit to improve the batch off performance.
