Appleton Mfg. Division adds Two New Machines to Safe-Slab™ Product Line
04-04-16 – (Neenah, WI): Appleton Mfg. Division is announcing two new machines for the Safe-Slab™ Core Recycler product line. The Butt Roll Safe-Slab™ and the Master Roll Safe-Slab™ join the original Safe-Slab™ products to provide a full line of slabbing options for just about any roll material.
The completely new addition is the Butt Roll Safe-Slab™, developed while working on a slabbing solution in conjunction with a long time customer. The Butt Roll Safe-Slab™ offers a safe, productive and hands free slabbing solution for butt rolls. Machine operators are removed from the cutting process and slabbing occurs automatically within a wire mesh enclosure. The Butt Roll Safe-Slab™ features interlocking doors for added safety. The slabbing is performed by the automated cutting mechanism and is activated by the operator via push button control. The operator only has to load the butt roll onto the slabbing arm, the rest of the slabbing process is controlled via the externally mounted operator control panel. Roll size specifications for the Butt Roll Safe-Slab™ are based on customer needs and their project requirements.
Features: Hands free, push button activated slabbing, wire mesh enclosure for added safety, Interlocking doors, cut headers in half for easier disposal, externally mounted operator control panel
The new Master Roll Safe-Slab™ was originally designed and released for sale as the Slabber XLA™ in the spring of 2013. After several additional installations and refinements, it has been folded into our Safe-Slab™ product line as the Master Roll Safe-Slab™. It can be installed as a standalone operation or to work with existing workflows to provide seamless integration capable of providing a high level of automation. Safety is enhanced by placing the blade and cutting area within an enclosure that requires no direct interaction from the operator during the slabbing process. Once the master roll is loaded onto the slabbing arm, the operator simply presses a button and the roll is lifted into cutting position. The Master Roll Safe-Slab’s automated cutting mechanism can achieve a much faster pace of precise cutting than manual cutting with utility knives. This controlled processing allows a metered or measured amount of material to flow into the reprocessing system. Roll size specifications for the Master Roll Safe-Slab™ are based on customer needs and their project requirements.
Features: Slabbing arm with mounted laser to assist with roll positioning, precise and programmed cutting pass, enclosed and fully guarded and interlocked cutting area, processing speed programmed to users downstream requirements, and an externally mounted operator control panel.
