Performance and safety
18 Декабря 2018
The new guillotine POWERcut of the German company RAS is installed in the procurement section of the frame-procurement workshop of LLC "Termotron-Zavod". The guillotine has an ergonomic Desk, fast-moving system CNC back gauge, flexible sorting system with upper support bars and the bottom of the sorting plate, the collection of waste. As the main working body, a swinging yoke with an upper knife fixed on it was used, which allowed to reduce the cutting angle to minimum values and to obtain thin straight strips not twisted by a screw.
"We have been looking for a long time to replace our old German guillotine, which has worked out its term, — said the chief technologist of the enterprise Sergey Rozhnov. — The main task was-to find the equipment which is not conceding on productivity to replaced. The average performance of the guillotines currently on the market is just over 20 cuts per minute. Our old equipment gave 42 cuts per minute, in RASPOWERcut — 64.
Buying common on the market a guillotine, we would have lost in performance twice. And this guillotine even increased productivity. At the same time, we did not have the task to purchase German equipment, but, unfortunately, no other manufacturer could meet our requirements."
According to Sergey Ivanovich, the equipment installed at the plant even in the most minimal configuration has a number of advantages. Thus, the guillotine is much safer than its predecessor-the operator will not be able to physically place his hands in the cutting zone. Behind the equipment there are laser barriers: if a person pulls out the finished parts, the guillotine automatically stops working. Small details with the help of a special system are fed to the operator in the working area. All this minimizes the risk of occupational injury.
