Forstner POWER COMPACT PRO

Fortner Compact Pro
6 STRAIGHTENING ROLLERS

6 STRAIGHTENING ROLLERS

The POWER COMPACT PRO has 6 manual straightening rollers to remove coil set and give customers flat material every time. The rollers are made of polished steel with a 110mm diameter. The pressure of the straightening rolls is set by locking handles with reference scale.

For more demanding applications, the POWER COMPACT PRO can be equipped with 6 hard chrome-plated 110 mm straightening rollers, which ensure rust-free operation and longer service life.

5 PAIRS OF SLITTING KNIVES

5 PAIRS OF SLITTING KNIVES

5 pairs of slitting knives come standard on the POWER COMPACT PRO. The unique “Cap-Locking” system gives you trouble free slitting the life of the machine. The shafts are 140mm. The tolerance between the shaft and blades is less that 0.01mm which gives you a smooth and easy to move positioning of the slitting blades anywhere on the shaft. The caplock consist of a half moon mild steel that presses onto the shaft by an allen head screw. Since the caplock is softer that the shaft, you do not have to worry about “scoring” the shaft like other designs tend to over time. The knives have a two side cutting surface, so you can alternate sides and take tension out of narrow slits. The machines come standard with a red with sliver lettering on the scale for ease of reading the position of the top blade.

F3 – Control

The F3 – Control has a variable speed setting and 20 programm lines. The operator can program the material, the length, the straightening setting and the number of parts to be cut. Due to the motorised raising and lowering of the slitting blades, there is no waste at the end of the job. All drives, motors and encoders are from the reliable Siemens brand. Simple icon display makes operation easy for all languages.
Another feature of the F3 – Control of the POWER COMPACT PRO is the fully automatic straightening. The operator specifies the straightening value in the material table, the remaining calculation and control of the straightening shafts is done by the control system.

The Forstner POWER COMPACT PRO combines maximum cutting performance and minimum space requirements. It is used in larger companies with serial production. The size of the components is the decisive factor for the advantages you want to profit from. At the heart of the machine there is a robust and reliable automatic straightening unit with six rolls and a powerful slitting unit, which can be equipped with the desired number of knives.

The most important advantages:

  • Very robust construction for high cutting performance.
  • 6 straightening rollers with easy adjustment.
  • Sophisticated and quickly adjustable slitter.
  • Logical and user-friendly user interface.

The infeed guide roller are angled to match the loop of the coil from a decoiler. This helps prevent creasing on soft materials like copper, aluminum and zinc.

The table guide has four roller bearings (two on each side) to guide the metal in the pinch rolls. The roller bearings allow the metal to move easily forward and backwards without damaging the edges. This also keeps the material straight as the material is fed into the machine helping to ensure a square cut.

The slitting blade cover features a safety switch built into the 180-degree hinge. The switch shuts of all power to the infeed rollers and shear allowing you to safely adjust the blades. The 180 degree hinge allows you to fully open the cover without the need of additional supports.

The Guillotine shear will be the perfect solution for customer that are looking for a fast and smooth cutting process. The shear utilizes a high carbon blade for long lasting cuts, up to 2.0mm Mild Steel (400N/mm²). The enforced shear frame ensures a smooth shearing motion. The Guillotine shear of the POWER COMPACT PRO comes with an integrated cutting gap adjustment as standard.

The film applicator can basically be mounted on any table. Using the deflection rollers and the fully rubberized feed rollers, the protective film is pressed on almost bubble and wrinkle-free. The device type F-AG z2mo has an additional arm with tension spring for tensioning the film during the return movement. This design is only applicable for single decoiling systems.

The coil guide is an important component for the function and accuracy of every system. The table has a fixed and a manually adjustable coil guide with ball bearings. The adjustment of the movable coil guide is done by a hand wheel. This specific table has rollers integrated in the table to ensure a smooth surface.

If you want to prepare your line for a film applicator, then the option with the fully rubberized rollers is ideal for you. This means that your line is ideally prepared for retrofitting a film applicator at any time and with ease. Fully rubberized pinch rollers available in both 1250 and 1500 mm.

The out-feed conveyor is designed to move synchronously with the machine, with an ejector roller to support blanks during the cutting stroke and to convey them out of the guillotine shear. This significantly increases cut quality and safety. It has a motor and a swiveling conveyor belt with an ejector roller.

In order to facilitate access to the knife adjustment, a folding table can be installed between the slitter and the guillotine shear for access to the machine. This increases the operating convenience considerably, but extends the machine about 800 mm.
