Die Cutting Fiberglass Insulation HVAC Material

Die Cutting Fiberglass Insulation HVAC Material on Belt Clamp Feed System

SCHWABE USA Straight Ram Hydraulic Beam Press SR230

Fiberglass is used as resilient blankets for liquid natural gas tanks, pipe insulation, duct liners and die cut for HVAC insulation applications e.g. temperature insulation, acoustical insulation pads and blankets.

Watch Video Demo below on Freeman Schwabe YouTube Channel

The Demo shows one layer of HVAC material being cut, the SCHWABE USA SR press is capable of cutting multiple layers of the material.

Demo Material : Minimum material thickness: 1⁄2” Maximum material thickness: 6”

Min material width: 36” Maximum material width: 65”

Head Safety Block – For working under the head of the press.
E-Stop Safety Relays – These relays provide 3 primary functions:
Detect faults on safety-related electrical control circuits (i.e. faults in sensors, wiring, contactors, etc.)
Provides an ensured switching action.
Provides a manual reset facility.
Outfeed guarding

Feed System

Type – Clamp feed/ belt combination
Continuous belt traveling through press, utilized as a material carrier and cutting surface, transported by a rear (in-feed) mounted pneumatic clamp feed unit, with no staging area beyond the guard.Clamp feed system complete with one movable pneumatically actuated clamp bar with linear bearing guide for smooth, precise travel. Also includes one pneumatically actuated fixed clamp bar with manual controls located on in feed side of press. Moveable clamp is powered by a Servo Drive for accurate positioning of the cutting belt.
