This application required slitting, cutting, and stacking film from rolls.

Material: Multiple films, 1 mil to 4 mil thick and up to 30” wide


Our Solution: 

AZCO Corp. designed and manufactured a sheeter with an automated stacking system.

  • A roll of material is loaded onto an AZCO heavy duty unwind.  The unwind has a control panel for easy operator use.
  • The material is supported and held in place by a pneumatic airshaft which is supported by a set of safety chucks.
  • The material travels over a set of idler rollers that assist in transitioning from the unwind to the next process.
  • The film is guided into the slitter station.
  • Eye registration system registers the cut to a printed mark.
  • The edge trim is rewound.
  • Precision-ground rollers feed the material to length.
  • The material feeds out of the blade.  The stacker’s grippers grip the leading edge and pull back as the material is fed out by the nip rollers.
  • Once the material is fed to length, the guillotine is triggered to cut the material.
  • After the piece is cut, a clamp mounted on the knife side of the stacker grips the trailing edge holding the material in place;  the stacker then releases the material.
  • The leading edge feeds out of the guillotine, and the process repeats.
  • A no-product sensor stops the machine if no material is present.
  • Safety light curtains are used to protect the operator from the machine.
  • The unit is PLC controlled.  An operator control panel is provided which includes a color touch screen for easy setup and operation of the units.
  • This control panel requires 230 volts, single phase, 60 cycles
  • Compressed air 2.75 – 5.5 bar [40 to 80 psi]
