HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Scrap Chopper cuts the edge trim into small pieces and deposits them in a hopper for easy handling. For more detail please clck on the "Step by Step Process" tab at the navigation bar above.
HOW DOES THE SCRAP CHOPPER IMPROVE SAFETY?
Scrap winders expose operators to sharp, fast-moving edges and tube scarf while requireing frequent handling and monitoring, puts production lines on hold to change out heavy awkward "scrap balls." Manual handling of such scrap can be even more labor intensive and potentially hazardous exposing the operatior to sharp, edge trimmed scrap or hot, sharp tube scarf. When sharp edge trim or tube scarf breaks it can whip around uncontrollably until it's caught by the operator and re-threaded into the scrap winder. With the Slitter Edge Trim Line Scrap Chopper you now have a safer, more efficient way of handling slitter line trim and tube scarf at the point of generation while adding to your bottom line.

HOW DOES THE SCRAP CHOPPER IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY?

You might even be required to take apart the scrap winder to rethread it. This takes time and can really do a number on your productivity. Coordinated by a frequency drive that makes automatic adjustments, a stand accomodates matieral width while the chopper and conveyor match slitter line speed.
