Designed to run at a maximum speed of 500 m/min, the ROBOSLIT ™ employs devices and techniques which drastically cut down the cumulative changeover time, so that the machine runs for about 90% of the total time, thus doubling the output vis a vis it’s counterparts rated for the same speed. Most importantly, this massive increase in output levels is achieved without increasing operator fatigue by the use of integrated material handling solutions which need minimum intervention or exertion by the operator.
The revolutionary features in the ROBOSLIT ™ which make it possible to realize the above objectives include-
- Dual turret rewinds which bring down the changeover time to less than 30 seconds by making it possible for other devices to execute the activities related to removal of finished reels and set up of new cores with the machine in operation
- These devices include a cross- cutting device, servo driven finished reels ejector, multi axis off loading mechanism and robotic core positioning system
- Robotic cutter positioning system while cutting in the tangential, rotary mode, resulting in a drastic reduction in the time and expertise required to change slit widths
- Horizontal orientation of the lay on section ensures that the rewind reels are subjected to constant contact pressure as against the pivoted counterparts in which the contact angle changes with the rewind diameter
