It can also be equipped with a twin-head system, which allows cutting tools replacement without stopping the production line, while guaranteeing the operator safety.
High-performance scrap management
Several scrap management systems are available for this machine.
- It can be equipped with a scrap chopper to make variable length steel scraps removed by a belt conveyor and discharged into a container.
- This system can also be equipped with a scrap press system device that creates compressed "packets" of steel scrap. These compressed "packets" are then removed and taken to a container.
- There is also a scrap baler system that makes "bales" out of edge trimmings. Intermediate storage system and material guiding systems automatically and safely feed the trimmed scrap into the winding shaft. This system does not require manual handling and ensures smooth non-stop operation.
