This cutting machine for single strands is a special machine for cutting propellant powder strands offering precision and speed combined with economy. The single strand is fed continuously into the machine.
When extruding propellant powder strands through the double or triple die, no matter whether by means of hydraulic presses or screw extruders, it is inevitable that the individual strands are leaving the die at different discharge velocities. Therefore, the cutting rate needs to be adapted to each strand individually during the cutting.
The Cutting Machine, object of our present offer, is an ideal solution to this problem, always using one machine for one strand.
The machine consists of four main parts. These are:
- The cutting machine
- The switch board
- The control panel
- The loop control unit
- all electrical parts of the cutting machine are in explosion-proof design
- safety switch at the cover housing, i.e. immediate stop of the machine when cover is opened
- connection for water for optional fire fighting system
- emergency stop button
- Microprocessor control 80537
- Pressure regulator with water separator/ Material direction to be fixed with order
- 1 set of cutting and guide bushes is included in the delivery. Any further guiding and bushes according to the different strand diameters or blinds have to be ordered separately.
