Tandematic, world leader in stenter accessories, announces the release of the next generation Rail Mounted Trimmer and Rail Guidance System during ITMA 2019.
Tandematic, has continuously innovated machinery to minimize wasted fabric on stenters. Effective decurling, precision pinning, efficient glue application and finally, minimizing edge trim to less than 4 mm means more salable cloth and less waste in landfills.
Its next generation machinery operate efficiently with minimal downtime, ease of maintenance, and utilize the latest software, electronics and mechanical innovations (including 3-D printed parts) that are Industry 4.0 compliant.
A huge response during ITMA has been Tandamatic’s next generation Rail Mounted Trimmer. It employs a shearing action using proprietary mounting of self – lubricated, hardened blades. Onboard electronics automatically adjust trimmer speed for accurate, clean cutting while optimizing blade life. Blades are safely removed for re-sharpening using a single tool. As part of a corporate sustainability initiative, Tandematic offers an economical blade exchange program recycling worn blades for re-use.
Edge sensors working with precision actuators automatically maintains preset distance between fabric edge and point of cutting regardless of tension adjustments or process changes.
Trim waste removal is accomplished using a revamped air management system for the GEN II trimmer. Positive pressure aspirators effectively remove trim waste and eliminate clogs common with negative pressure designs.
The entire Gen ll trimmer system uses fewer parts, occupies less space and adapts to any stenter. Tandamatic also has standalone systems also are available for applications where a stenter is not used.
