Automatic horizontal cutting machine with reversing belt system for the cutting and splitting of sheets of various thicknesses by a stack cut

BST-140 horizontal cutting machine

The especially reinforced design of the cutting unit ensures a very high binding tension of approx. 10 t and thus provides the best possible way of converting light to higher densities.

  • Low throughput rates due to a maximum cutting and return motion speed of 80 m/min
  • Effective increase in productivity
  • Optimum cutting angle and cutting of precise sheet thicknesses thanks to fully automatic angle adjustment of the cutting unit depending on the cutting thicknesses.
  • Permanently high cutting precion throughout the very long knife lifetime thanks to the employment of a band knife of 60 x 0.6 mm.
  • Long knife lifetime and low set-up costs as the knife is relieved of the strain as it does not need to be turned thanks to the swivelling cutting unit.
  • Grinding duration and grinding cycle can be regulated at the grinding unit by the operator
  • A perforated sheet circling around the table serves for the transport of the blocks and allows a fast and uncomplicated integration into fully automated production processes, e.g. cutting lines

Foundation Plan


Unloading conveyor

  • Height-adjustable unloading conveyor/swivelling area
  • The height adjustable unloading conveyor separates the cut sheets (1 – n) from the remaining block and delivers them to the following transport conveyor
  • Positioned downstream of the cutting unit of the BST 140
  • In order to cut sheet stacks with sheet thicknesses of more than 80 mm, the unloading conveyor can be pneumatically hoisted at its end which thus prevents a misalignment of the split sheets – minimizes the waste rate when cutting the sheet stacks on the
  • Utilisation in all-automatic cutting lines in connection with a vertical contour cutting machine

Loading and unloading conveyors

  • Optional equipment with loading and unloading conveyors
  • Allow an automatic loading and unloading and thus a continuous production flow
  • Positioned upstream or downstream of the machine, respectively
  • Especially used in cutting lines
  • Reduction of machine down times

Vacuum unit in the table

  • Vacuum system for a better fixation of the material to be cut in the lower block area
  • Fans move together with the table.
  • Fans inside the table suck the foam
  • Extremely accurate cutting results as the block is fixed and even the slightest shifting of the materail is prevented
