Conveyor collection systems
A conveyor belt positioned after the cutter will automate cut piece collection. It gives improved cut length accuracy & cut quality by supporting the extrusion as it exits the cutter.
This can also enhance quality by automatically separating scrap cut lengths from good product.
The most popular type of collection system is the high pressure air jet option, where cut lengths are blown off the side of the belt.
The air nozzle design spreads the air blast over the widest belt area, to ensure a smooth discharge of the cut length into the collection bin.
Mechanical plough & push-off arms are also available. Multiple bin collection systems can be configured, with separate zones for scrap lengths.
