This application required unwinding gauze from a roll, and then pleating, heat sealing, and cutting it to length.

Our Solution: 

AZCO designed and manufactured a custom cut to length system with a pleating station, heat set station and material flow package.

  • The gauze is placed on a motorized unwind.
  • A dancer assembly creates tension and turns the unwind motor.
  • The gauze is fed off the unwind and is pulled through the pleating and heat setting station by the nip rollers in the FG-110.
  • An idle roller directs material into the pleating station.
  • Stainless steel funnel guides take the gauze and fold it into 4 pleats.
  • Exit guides lead the material into the heat set station.
  • Heated idle rollers press the pleats into place.
  • A laminar air flow of ionized air floats the product through the knife assembly, preventing static charge.
  • From the cut-to-length unit, the material falls out of the exit chute.
  • Unit can be operated in automatic or manual modes.
  • The FG-110 cut-to-length unit is PLC controlled.
  • An operator control panel is provided which includes an HMI color touch screen for easy setup and operation of the unit.
  • A base plate and clear anodized frame align the stations and support the unit.
  • Power required:  110/230 VAC and compressed air.
  • Rate:  75cpm at 5” long cut length.
