Once a carton has been precision-cut, the ELS Strippers efficiently remove the waste. Accurate waste removal without unnecessary, complex and time-consuming operations is ensured by belt transport of cartons through the strippers.
The stripper uses three servo-motors to drive the reciprocating nip cam, nip rolls, transport belt section and pin cylinders separately, while timed to the platen die cutter position. The reciprocating nip and pin cylinder may be independently adjusted while the platen die cutter is running, or while it is stationary.
Because displays are provided for readouts of the pin cylinder and nip timing relative to the platen die cutter, the user can reduce make-ready time and carton waste. To speed up the stripper changeover from one job to another, the pin cylinder and anvil roll chucking mechanisms use pneumatic cylinders to compress the chucking springs. Once the pin cylinders and anvil roll are in place, a flip of the selector switch will lock them there.
The strippers’ user-friendly, motorized adjustments deliver easy, precise performance. Predrilling the removable pin cylinder off-line allows you to reduce changeover time.
