DOWNERS GROVE (IL) January 12, 2009 Flexco is pleased to announce the introduction of its Electric Belt Cutter. It has been engineered to provide quick and easy cuts on all types of belting from the softest of natural rubbers to the hardest constructed solid woven PVC and fabric plied belts.
The Electric Belt Cutter is available in two sizes and specifically designed to allow the end user to cut belts quickly and safely resulting in less conveyor downtime, and overall increased productivity. The EBC1 Electric Belt Cutter is capable of cutting a rubber belt up to 1 (25 mm) and up to a maximum 360 P.I.W. (630 N/m) on PVC belts while the EBC2 cuts rubber belts up to 2 (50 mm) and up to a maximum 1140 P.I.W. (2000 N/m) on PVC belts.
Not only is the Electric Belt Cutter much easier and faster than conventional cutters, but it also allows for longitudinal cuts as well as angled cuts. The high speed, steel blade is dual angled for a smooth, accurate cut and is protected by a spring loaded blade guard for enhanced worker safety.
The sealed ball bearings that support the belt during cutting provide nearly friction free feeding of the cutter on the cutting surface requiring minimal effort by the operator. Its heavy duty stainless steel construction is strong, durable, and corrosion free and the permanently sealed gearbox provides for long lasting, maintenance free operation. The Electric Belt Cutter can also be easily adapted for either right or left hand operation.
