Options of module II

DIENES offers different solutions to support the operator and help optimise set-up processes. The manual slitting system module II can be equipped with a positioning aid for both shear and crush cutting.

Digital positioning aid via handheld unit for the crush cut

The integrated, compact and electronic multifunction module contains all the functions and information that the operator needs for fast and precise knife positioning. To do this, the operator moves the positioning aid to the desired cutting position, which he reads from the digital display.
The positioning aid is clamped at the desired cutting position, the stop arm is folded down and then the electromagnet is switched on. The operator can place the knife holder against the stop arm and fix it in the desired position by means of a slitting tool-specific locking device. When the positioning process is complete, the magnet is switched off and the stop arm is swivelled back into the rest position. In this way, all the knife holders of the slitting system can be positioned one after the other.

Menu-guided positioning aid via touch panel during shear cutting

The positioning of the bottom knife units and knife holders is done manually.
With the help of magnets attached to the adapters, the position of each slitting tool is detected by a magnetostrictive sensor. The measured values are transferred to a CPU via a bus interface and output accordingly on a touch panel. The operator selects the slitting tool to be positioned on the touch panel. The measured value is displayed on the panel in relation to a selected reference point.
The tool is manually brought into the desired slitting position and fixed via the tool-specific clamping.

Conversion from shear cut to crush cut

Module II can be equipped with both crush cut and shear cut knife holders. If a bottom knife shaft is used with the system, it is possible to switch between shear cut and crush cut.
