Guillotine Shears for cutting directly of a Coil

To meet customers demand, our guillotine shears can be modified to cut sheet metal or plastic directly of a coil, instead of realizing this with a very expansive production line. Therefore, a coil holder is mounted in front of the shear and a feeding unit is integrated into the special manufactured shear table. The control of the guillotine shear is accordingly extended with a positioning control unit to program variable feed lengths. The drive unit of the feed roll can be realized with an AC gear motor or servo motor accordingly to the required performance. The length measurement is realized with a suitable rotary encoder.

An application case of such a shear with an integrated feed unit is for example the production of plastic strips of the same width. In the next work step occlusal splints for medical use will be punched out and formed.
