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 slitting groups is guaranteed by RS brackets, designed for sliding belt coupling, positioned on each motor and by a sliding belt driven by a brushless motor. Top Part and bottom part of every slitting group is synchronized by a pneumatic double effect engaging piston. –
The movement of slitting units is ensured by RS Brackets, designed for sliding belt coupling, positioned on each motor and each knifeholder and by a sliding belt driven by a brushless motor for positioning the knives and a sliding belt driven by a brushless motor for positioning the motors.
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.
