Precisely measuring knife positions and accurately setting formats
TruSet M is a measurement system in slitter sections that indicates the position of the cutting knives and contributes to reduction of broke due to incorrect formats. It operates in a practically maintenance-free fashion.
TruSet M determines the positions of the individual top knives by means of a magnetostrictive sensor and magnets at the knife carriages and displays them in large format on a TFT monitor. The measurements are transmitted to a touch panel via a profibus interface. While the active knife is manually shifted into the desired position, the system precisely indicates the current position on the display (± 0.25 mm). Operator involvement is limited to selection or de-selection of active knives. The measurements appear automatically as soon as a knife is moved.
Truset M is suitable for all winders with manual knife positioning.
In the winder system audit, the winding quality of finished rolls and the condition of the winder and surroundings are analyzed. The goal is optimization of system and process regarding capacity and quality.
