R-5 Belt gap nip distance counter
Ensures precise & repeatable setting of the belt nip distance
The digital belt gap nip distance counter is recommended for any pulling or feeding application where precision is required.
The easy-to-read counter is linked to the belt height adjustment hand-wheel. The display is calibrated in 1 mm increments to make it easier to set the same belt distance from run-to-run.
This feature is critical if a high level of cut length accuracy is required. Varying belt pressure or nip can have a drastic impact on the cut length tolerance. Too much nip, and the extrusion can be squashed & distorted; too little and it can slip in the belts.
The nip distance counter allows the operator to note the optimum belt gap. This ensures that the belt distance can be re-set to exactly this setting from run-to-run.
