Splitting machine with integrated de-stacking system for the splitting of flexible soft foams

BSA horizontal cutting machine

Unique splitting system: The cutting unit moves horizontally and works with 2 tables which are adjustable in height. On the first table the material is fed, on the second table the split sheet ware is de-stacked.

  • Very high productivity due to cutting speeds of up to 100 m/min. Cutting angle and pressure roller are automatically adjusted depending on material and cutting thickness
  • Creation of sheet stacks with almost no misalignments by automatically removing and destacking the material
  • Due to the utilization of a slim knife bar it is possible to cut a very wide range of different materials with minimal cutting tolerances
  • The automatic re-adjustment of the knife secures a constant cutting and tolerance quality
  • The machine is suitable for being incorporated into an all-automatic cutting line, e.g. in connection with a vertical contour cutting machine

Driven pressure roller

  • Necessary for the cutting of thin sheets and special materials

Motor-driven angle adjustment

  •  Optimum cutting angle for different materials and cutting thicknesses

Vacuum unit

  • For the cutting of special materials which do not stay upon the table on their own due to their low dead weight
  • High cutting accuracy due to the excellent fixation of the sheets and blocks
  • Frequency-controlled vacuum unit which regulates the suction power. For special foam qualities as well as for decreasing block height

Pallet conveying system

  • Increase of productivity through all-automatic stacking
  • The cut material is stacked onto several pallets and unloaded on the pallets afterwards by means of a chain conveyor
