WC601B Rotary Blade Tubing Cutter
Description / Details
Eraser’s Model WC601B Rotary Blade Tubing Cutter is the ultimate automatic flexible tubing cutter. The unit easily and accurately cuts to length tubing, sleeving and more to the programmed length and number of pieces. Ten feed rates allow the operator to choose the correct rate for a given material to optimize production rate, repeatability, and accuracy of the cut length. The unit is perfect for processing flexible tubing to tight specifications, such as those required for medical tubing.Using a unique combination of an adjustable dual driven belt feed and a rotary cutting head, coupled with a reliable stepper drive system, it achieves results formerly only possible by hand operation. The belt feed and rotary cutter ensures there is no crushing of material, either along its length or on the cut ends. Programming of the unit is simple; a batching feature allows all parameters for frequently run jobs to be pre-programmed. A kitting feature allows for multiple pieces of different lengths to be cut. Quantities of 99 batches and 10 kits may be programmed.
Series InformationThe WC601B and WC601D Automatic Tubing Cutters from the Eraser company can accurately cut flexible tubing to a programmed length and number of pieces. Using a unique rotary cutting head, Eraser's WC601 series Tubing Cutters can process to tight specifications, such as those required for medical tubing applications. The adjustable dual-feed belts, coupled with a reliable Stepper Motor Drive System, helps to produce accurate and repeatable cutlines. The WC601B can cut material up to 1/2 inch OD, and the WC601D can cut material up to one and 1/8 inches OD. Both machines can cut to a length as small as 1/100,000 of an inch, depending on the material.
A bushing set is required with either machine and is based on the OD size of the material. Ten feed rate options allow the operator to choose the correct rate for a given material to optimize production rate, repeatability, and accuracy of the cutline. Programming of the unit is simple, a batching feature allows all variables for frequently run jobs to be pre-programmed. A kitting feature allows for multiple batches to be run consecutively. Quantities of 99 batches and 10 kits may be programmed. These automatic feed and cut machines can also be paired with one of your Eraser's Dereeling Systems, such as the DE700 Compensating Dereeler, which can help improve the accuracy and productivity of the cutting machine.
