Automatic Core Cutter

The Universal CCA Automatic Core Cutter

Fast, Simple Operation with extraordinary cut quality

Automated

  • Unique core save features prevent core waste
  • Industry 4.0 control system with Ethernet connection for remote commissioning and diagnostics
  • No manual adjustments – Automated set up
  • Automatic control of cut pressure and cut speed
  • Automatic indexing of cutting blade to maximise life
  • Automatic measurement of parent core length

Safe

  • Compliance with worldwide safety standards including CE and OSHA regulations
  • SISTEMA safety analysis to confirm compliance

Productive

  • Robust design with cut position set using a precision ball screw, rather than a belt. This ensures long term accuracy and reliability.
  • Cut position can be controlled to 0.02mm (0.0008”). Can be used for applications where cores are stacked together.
  • Large 10” colour touchscreen interface for the operator
  • Simple set up with a range of features to maximise output and minimise waste.
  • Burr free cut with minimal dust generation

CCA Automatic Core Cutter – the finer details

The CCA automatic core cutter is part of a range of converting equipment produced by Universal Converting Equipment. The CCA machine is designed to be a cost-effective unit requiring minimum operator intervention. The touch screen interface allows the operator to programme their required core lengths. The touch screen interface allows cores of different lengths to be programmed in each cut sequence to optimise the usage of the parent cores.

The operator introduces the parent core to the machine and it is gripped by a pneumatically actuated mechanical gripper. The core is drawn into the machine and the length of the core is measured automatically before the cutting sequence begins. The servo positioning system advances the core under the knife. If selected an initial trim is taken to clean up the edge of the core, then the required core lengths are produced.

All operations are PLC controlled to ensure precise and clean cuts. The option for variable core lengths is built into the CCA machine as standard. Up to 7 different lengths can be programmed to be cut.

The CCA cutting system employs a pneumatically loaded knife. A high powered pneumatic cylinder ensures that the knife will cut through the hardest of core materials, once the core is cut the blade automatically retracts. This increases the life of the cutting blade and the inner mandrel. The cut pressure is set on the touch screen and does rely on the operator changing a manual regulator.
