Industrial Equipment Manufacturer Unveils Guillotine Roll Cutter

Cost-Cutting Guillotine Reclaims Defective, Out-Of-Spec Rolls OSHA-Approved Design Replaces Dangerous Manual Roll Removal Method Newark, DE: A guillotine roll cutter from industrial equipment manufacturer Precision AirConvey, Newark, Del., automatically removes paper, film, foil, nonwovens and other materials from defective and/or out-of-spec rolls to permit the material to be easily reclaimed rather than disposed as waste. Applying uniform cutting force, the guillotine roll cutter cleanly slices through the material in less than one minute per roll without cutting the core to prevent fiber contamination and permit reuse of the core. Ideal for converters, printers, plastic film processors and paper and label manufacturers, the PAC guillotine roll cutter enables plant engineers, operations managers, human resource personnel and other professionals to replace the dangerous, manual, razor knife-based method of removal with an OSHA-approved system requiring only a single operator. The guillotine roll cutter includes an array of designed-in operator safeguards including a control panel requiring two-hand operation; an electrically interlocked safety surround enclosure; full guarding around the knife; an electrical interlock on the mandrel locking device and a viewing window to oversee operations from a safe distance, among other safeguards. In addition to upgrading personnel safety, the PAC guillotine performs faster than the dangerous, manual method allows and may permit cost reductions in liability and personnel.
