AZCO Corp.'s SUR-SIZE TS-54 is a compact
sheeter that can accommodate materials including films, foils, paper,
nonwovens, corrugated and rubber products. Place the roll onto the unwind
support and the material is fed to the traveling knife assembly. From a color
touch screen, the operator enters the length and the number of pieces and the
unit automatically feeds out and cuts to the predetermined length and number.
As the material leaves the unit, it exits to a takeaway conveyor for manual
stacking or the takeaway conveyor can be replaced with an optional stacker. This
unit requires 110V and air.
Siemens and Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology have achieved a faster production process based on selective laser melting for speeding up the prototyping of big, complex metal parts in gas turbine engines.
