GLV FlexTrim tail cutter designed for hot, wet situations
GL&V, Nashua, NH, says its FlexTrim tail cutter is designed to operate at the end of the forming section or into the press section.
All components are selected to work in a wet-end environment and can work near a steam box where temperatures can reach up to 212°F (100°C).
A totally enclosed, pressurized drive section protects the motor and clutch assembly from the harsh mill environment.
The drive section is also skid-mounted and easily removable for off-machine maintenance.
The sheet is cut with a high-pressure water jet. The jet nozzle can be oriented for either upward or downward cuts. Smooth and precise carriage travel ensures a clean cut.
The FlexTrim design allows for several control and travel-speed options and is adaptable to any machine width.
