Eraser’s fully automated Model WC601D Rotary Blade Tubing Cutter is perfect for processing flexible tubing to tight specifications such as those required for medical applications. Model WC601D is capable of processing materials such as flexible polyurethane, flexible PVC, nylon reinforced hose and rubber hose to the programmed length and number of pieces. The belt feed and rotary cutter ensure there is no crushing of material, either along its length or on the cut ends. To optimize production rate, repeatability and accuracy of the cut length, Model WC601D has ten feed rates which allow the operator to choose the correct rate for a given material. Using a unique combination of an adjustable dual driven belt feed and a rotary cutting head, coupled with a reliable stepper drive system, the WC601D achieves results formerly only possible by hand operation. Programming of the unit is simple. A batching feature allows all parameters for frequently run jobs to be pre-programmed. Up to 99 batches may be programmed. A kit feature allows a collection (or set) of batches to be run sequentially.
The 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 cut-lengths. The WC601B can cut material up to 1/2 inch OD, and the WC601D can cut material up to 1-1/8 inches OD. Both machines can cut to a length as small as 0.100 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 cut-lengths. 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 Eraser’s Dereeling Systems, such as the DE700 Compensating Dereeler, which can help improve the accuracy and productivity of the cutting machine.
