Gillard will be exhibiting a new extrusion servo rotary cutter on their stand in Hall 16, Booth C77, at K 2019, Düsseldorf, Germany.

The new Servo-Torq Plus extrusion cutter is designed for plastics, rubbers and many non- polymer materials. The unit combines the latest Lenze brushless AC servo motors with a fully digital multi-axis control system to activate the rotating knife blade.

According to Gillard, very high cut rates are possible with precise cut length accuracy. The company adds that the new Siemens widescreen touch panels allow easy operator control of the machine.

The new Servo-Torq cutters are available with maximum diameter cutting capacities of up to 150mm. All types of plastic and rubber extruded material can be cut with the machine.

Integral twin-belt Accra-FeedTM caterpillar infeeder/puller machines are provided to match every cutter model. These feature direct drive AC motors and planetary gearboxes to provide improved speed control at high extrusion speeds.

A high level of connectivity is standard as well as Industry 4.0 cloud support. Remote service is available via the internet using the onboard VPN router. ProfiNet communications allows networking with the rest of the extrusion line.
