Hightech Knife holder from DIENES

The innovative, pneumatic knife holder DS 8 for shear cutting is the result of 100 years of experience and innovative thinking at DIENES for industrial slitting.

DIENES offers the DS 8 in two versions: the DS 8 L and the DS 8 H. The DS 8 L is the light version of the shear cut knife holder and is used for cutting widths from 100 mm. This knife holder reaches a speed of up to 2000 m/min with a cutting pressure of 10- 100 N. The DS 8 H, on the other hand, has a greater cutting pressure (30-130 N) and achieves higher speeds (3,000 m/min) with a cutting width from 145 mm.

An absolute highlight is that the DS 8 shear cut knife holder enables tool-free knife replacement. This novel and patented system of knife exchange contributes significantly to work and process safety in the company and reduces the set-up time to a fraction of the previous system, the tool-related knife exchange.

The DS 8 knife holder offers the following additional functions

Use of the knife holder DS 8

The Allrounder impresses with its very high stability and service life, a cutting width from 100 mm and a speed of up to 3,000 m/min. It can be used in both directions (right/left head alignment) and thus ensures maximum flexibility. He convinces as a specialist in the paper industry.

The pneumatic shear cut knife holder DS 8 from DIENES with its double-axis guide stands for maximum stability, even when processing the thickest foils and paper types. The cutter head can be used flexibly and comfortably for left and right-hand versions. The drag ring depth adjustment with a scale ensures an optimal setting of the zero point individually for each knife. Thus, after resharpening or cleaning, the desired point can be set again at any time without time-consuming adjustment work to avoid loss of time and quality. The top knife of the DS 8 holder can be positioned exactly and safely to the bottom knife by the patented adjustment slide. In addition, the knife holder is corrosion-resistant.

Version with Senso Control

The DS 8 is also available with the innovative LED depth adjustment from DIENES. This can be used up to a minimum cutting width of 115 mm.

With its highly precise and convenient depth setting and the sophisticated cutter head adjustment, the DS 8 in the Ultimate version proves itself even with difficult cutting materials. Further advantages are the user-friendly, time-saving LED display for setting the overlap depth, the sensor for detecting the cutting edge and the resulting reproducible overlap depth, even if the knives have different diameters.
