MAXSON AUTOMATIC MACHINERY COMPANY (Westerly RI USA) introduces a new high speed sheeter to serve the emerging trend of smaller format, custom oriented packaging. The MAXSON MD1/2 Sheeter with a 15” – 42” (380 mm – 1067 mm) cutoff range and 30” (762 mm) trim width, is designed for the folding carton market that caters to the growing demand of single serving or small pack quantity boxes.
With its low inertia knife revolvers, the MD1/2 Sheeter exceeds over 18,000 cuts per hour throughout most of the cutoff range. The electronic drives that power the dual knife rotary cutter maintain +/- 0.015” (+/- 0.38 mm) sheet length accuracy. Using the ‘pile offset’ feature, press ready skids are delivered directly to the printer.
The MD1/2’s petite footprint permits the Operator to move effortlessly between the roll stand area and the stacker when tending the sheeter. Make readies are easily accomplished from the machine’s near side. A large, Windows® compatible, color touch screen uses intuitive icon displays to quickly input orders and monitor production.
Electrical enclosures are machine mounted, allowing quick field installation and straightforward operational serviceability. Remote diagnostic capabilities that permit troubleshooting and programming modifications from MAXSON’s Westerly RI facility insure prompt after sales response.
