Sheeter, High Production Board
MAXSON’s DFK, the Industry’s choice for a high production board sheeter is equipped with unwinds, web splicer, a programmable decurller, a splice detector, slitter rig, solid twin knife cylinders, a reject gate,a sheet cleaner, a high speed overlap system that permits quick set up of the stacker, delivery air that provides a well jogged pile and a safe offloading design that allows the sheeter to continue to run using an automated rapid pallet discharge.
Two shaftless self loading roll stands cradle rolls weighing up to 10,000 lbs. (4545 kg) in position while the sheeter is running. The overhead automatic splicing system, joins the end of one roll to the beginning of the other while the sheeter speed exceeds 800 fpm (240 mpm), eliminating down time associated with roll changes. The decurl unit is programmed to return to the null position upon initiation of a splice, then automatically increase penetration as the roll diameter decreases until the core is reached and the cycle repeats.
The foot print of the sheeter is Operator friendly and conducive to fast change overs. Complete size changes require less than 10 minutes. For longer runs, roll changes take less than a minute as do skid changes. Control stations provide menu driven production data, operating conditions and enunciated faults at the Operator’s touch. Outfitted with an ethernet connection the sheeter’s electrical system can be monitored, evaluated or modified by MAXSON technicians in Westerly RI.
