Fed by a Servo Wire Feed or Pneumatic Wire Feed it can be used in cut-to-length applications. The powerful three-stage, double acting air cylinders have a pancake profile for high speed operation. Integral stroke dampeners are used to handle snap-through shock loads, extending cycle life. A four-way solenoid valve controls the sequencing. The compact, low profile construction allows for easy mounting and, if desired, portability. Each cutter is equipped with air silencers and safety guard. Two wire diameters are standard, and up to eight diameters are available as an option. The lower blade has precise holes to fully guide and contain the wire through the shearing process. The upper blade has a U-shaped profile to contain the wire for a clean cut. A hold down spring pressure pad is also profiled to support the wire prior to shearing. Both upper and lower blades are vertically adjustable for wear compensation and sharpening.
