Short material rest length
To minimize waste and therewith achieve a high material efficiency, the Voortman V505-160T offers the possibility of a minimum material rest length of only 65 mm. This short rest length, which is realized by applying an end cut, is measured as the length between the gripper truck and the shearing blade.
Production without scrap
Alternatively to the end cut, the operator can opt for a no end cut principle. In that case, the gripper truck places the angle at the right position, retracts (so that the machine can punch as close to the profile end as possible), grips the profile again and feeds it out of the machine. Applying the no end cut principle is especially useful for tower fabricators that source angle profiles which are already cut to length.
