The AF-1201 preparing device is used for efficient die-cutting of belts and tapes up to a width of 1300 mm width and a thickness of 8 mm for the Flexproof joining method. Step-Flex (finger over finger, only two-ply belts) is possible by manually moving the belt for the second cut.
Die-cutting operation is sequential, engaging only two blades at a time with a pneumatic cylinder; lateral feed is by means of an automatic spindle drive. This allows unattended operation of the machine once the belt is loaded and the cut started and guarantees optimum quality of the cut fingers.
The machine is of "open throat" design, i.e. wider belts than 1300 mm can be cut in several steps.
The AF-1201 is ideal for high-volume conveyor and power transmission belt fabrication.
