The positioning of this Mario Cotta slitting system is completely automatic. Operators will interact only with the Scada software, running on an industrial pc, specially designed by Mario Cotta, entering, saving and loading the slitting recipes. It will be the software and the positioning system to quickly position all the groups.
The movement of the groups is guaranteed by a side shift translator on a roll-on rail that acts on the upper unit.
The engaging piston will grant a simoultaneous positioning of top and bottom part, maintaining slitting parameters.
The movement of the groups is guaranteed by two side shift translator actinh on roll-on rails that act independently on the upper and bottom units.
This positioning therefore allows a change of slitting recipe, and consequent high-precision handling of the groups, without any engaging piston, thus allowing the material to be kept in the slitting section, while maintaining all the cutting geometries and parameters.
