processing of paper, plastic film , steel and aluminium to name a few. Hot perforation is a preferred method for brittle substances such as plastic film. Optima has been mixed up in design of a perforating machine control system. The machine was made to perforate reels of film laminate using a combined heat and pressure process. To make this happen, the film is passed by way of a nip created between a heated perforating roller and a heated anvil roller. Through the perforating process paper can be used to protect the film from damage. The perforated film is slit into strips and each strip is then wound onto an individual reel.
The Pulsed perforation machine is an unbiased unit allowing the vertical perforation of products. This product may be assembled to run in line to all or any automatic creasing and perforating machines, the paper is fed from the creasing machine and transported by an alignment table with a sloping belt and ball cage towards the pulsed perforation assembly ensuring perfect registration. The perforation heads can certainly be added as required and mounted onto the pneumatically driven unit. These perforations may be continuous or pulsed, the length and the time of the pulse can simply have adjusted utilizing the measure settings on the touchscreen display panel. Perforated paper is then delivered onto our collector delivery output unit.
The machine is mobile on wheels making it an easy task to move around in and out of production as required.
The temperature of the anvil and perforating rolls is controlled by a separate stand-alone system. The operator starts these rolls manually and they operate at a fixed idle speed. The rolls remain open before the line runs to prevent burning of the paper or film.
The unwind and rewind drives automatically compensate for reduction / build up of product on the reels. Diameter sensors located on the paper unwind , film unwind and paper rewind are utilized below 5% line-speed to preset the respective drives internal diameter calculation blocks.Perforation Tools The product rewinds use the diameter sensor located on the product rewind A to compensate for diameter build up. Load-cells situated after the paper unwind , after the film unwind , before the paper rewind and after the S-wrap are accustomed to provide feedback of actual web tension. When the perforating nip is open and the film unwind and paper rewind drives are started they act to attain the respective tension setpoints. In addition when the perforating nip is closed and the paper unwind and S-wrap drives are started they act to regulate tension to the respective setpoints.
To set up the machine the operator runs the film and paper unwinds and the paper rewind at fixed slow speeds using jog pushbuttons located near to the devices. Line jog push-buttons on the paper rewind and product rewind push-button stations cause the line drives (all those except the anvil and perforator rolls) to begin and the line to run at a preset jog speed with the nip open.
When the machine is threaded and the operator has checked that the anvil and perforating rolls are at an appropriate temperature, the operator starts all the drives from the HMI. When they’re started the film unwind , paper rewind and product rewind drives act to tension the net to the relevant tension setpoints on the HMI.
When all drives are enabled the operator presses line start at the HMI. A line-start alarm sounds for 3 seconds, once that is complete the operator re-presses line-start within 10 seconds to initiate ramp up. Initially the slitter begins to run, and the perforating roll and anvil rolls stop, the perforating roll closes automatically and the line then ramps around the speed set on the HMI.
When the operator presses line stop on the HMI the line ramps down to a stop and the perforating roller automatically opens and then restarts at idle speed. The drives remain enabled until stopped manually by an operator on the HMI.
The operator triggers the automatic start-up facility using a preset time facility or by pressing an automatic start-up now push-button. This facility inflates the airshafts, starts the drives and then applies heat to the Tokuden rolls in a fixed sequence ensuring that all stage is complete before the following commences.
The operator can choose the shutdown facility. It stops the hydraulic pack and causes the Tokuden rolls to cool. When the anvil roll reaches 60 degrees C the line drives and the Anvil roll drive are stopped. When the perforator roll reaches 60 degrees C the perforator roll is stopped and the contactors supplying power to the Tokuden panels de-energised.Read More
