Series IV Tow Cutters are supplied completely assembled, ready

blade Cutter uses a reel consisting of a disc and a concentric ring
separated by support posts. The periphery of the disc and ring has a
multitude of "Cutting" blades parallel to the common axis and located
radially with the sharp edge facing outward. As the reel turns, Tow is
wrapped around the reel and blade tips. A wheel is fixed in position close
to the blade tips. As the Tow builds on the circumference, the fixed wheel
forces the accumulating fiber against the blade tips thus cutting the
Fiber. The cut fiber passes through the opening between the blades, and
towards the center of the reel for discharge through the ring.
is determined by the blade spacing around the reel Different reels are
required for different cut lengths. Cut length is uniform, and blade life
is exceptional when compared to other cutters. (A typical radial cutter
reel for 1 1/2-inch staple will have over 5 feet of exposed cutting
surface.) Cut lengths from 5 mm to 150 mm may be produced on the same
Cutter by installing different Cutter Reel.
producing variable cut lengths within the same reel are also available.
offers a complete line of tow cutters. Tow Cutters are available to
process the smallest lab samples or up to 15 tons of tow per hour!
Cutter is carefully configured to match the customer's needs. Many options
are available and custom-engineered units may be requested to satisfy
presser wheel on CAPITOL Cutters as large as 10” (250 mm) in Diameter.
The large wheel keeps the tow gradually progressing into the blades, and
minimizes side loading of the blades by reducing the convergence angle
between the reel and the wheel. Presser wheels are pneumatically
operated for ease of operation and operator safety. Full pneumatic
travel prevents damage to valuable reels in the event a blockage occurs
in the cutting zone.
cutters feature a monopost frame that allows fiber discharge to three
sides and the bottom. Hinged doors give easy access to the front and
rear of the reel area to make adjustments and maintenance quick and
easy. The cutter reel attaches from the top with a bolt for simple reel
left-hand operation is available on all cutters. (Right hand Cutters
move the tow from the right to the left.)
speed electronic drives are standard on all cutters. All drives are
state-of-the art solid state units supplied by major manufacturers that
offer worldwide service. Frequency and voltage kits are available to
suit most requirements. A toothed belt drive allows the motor and Tow
speed to be matched for optimum control and energy efficient operation.
sophisticated tow guiding system is used to control the tow presentation
to the cutter reel in all CAPITOL Cutters. Correct tow presentation is
critical to quality staple. The tow may be maneuvered vertically or
horizontally, and shaped from top to bottom to present the most uniform
Tow bundle to the Cutter Reel.
designed into each cutter. Reel access doors are electrically
interlocked for operator safety. Controls are functionally interlocked
to prevent improper operation. Emergency stops are located on the cutter
and remote pedestals. All belts and rotating parts are guarded from
access. All Electrical components are ISI approved.
