On the Forstner KA6-110 slit and cut-to-length lines, 5 Sets of slitting knives come standard. The shafts are made of polished tool steel and the slitting blades hardened with a Rc45 hardness. The tolerance between the shaft and blades is less that .0005” (.01mm), creating a smooth and easy-to-move positioning of the slitting blades anywhere on the shaft.
The cap-lock design consists of a half moon mild steel that presses onto the shaft by an allen head screw. Because the cap-lock is softer than the shaft, there’s no need to worry about “scoring” the shaft like other designs tend to over time.
The knives have a two side cutting surface, so you can alternate sides and take tension out of narrow slits. The machines come standard with a red with sliver letting on the scale for ease of reading the position of the top blade.
SENSITIVE MATERIAL MODE
Sensitive Material Mode
Not only is the coil-selector automatically controlled, but also the adjustment of the upper straightening shafts.
Whenever a new coil is selected, the upper straightening shafts will be adjusted into a new position to ensure the straightening quality.
A special sensitive material operating mode prevents start-stop-lines by the upper straightening shafts and increases the quality of the coil-line enormously. Even a single sheet can be produced without coil-set or marking of the material by the automatically adjusted upper shafts.
6 STRAIGHTENING ROLLERS
6 Straightening Rollers
With the 6-roller straightener you can create mark-free, flat sheets. The upper straightening rollers are automatically positioned in front of the sheet and open before standstill to avoid stopping marks.
The straightener has a motor and one pair of infeed rollers, 6 straightening shafts . 110 mm and one pair of out-feed rollers . 70 mm. The upper straightening shafts are also programmable.
The Forstner KA6 series are massive all-in-one straightening, slitting, and cut-to-length systems. They are designed to take the coil set out of material of varying thickness. The KA6-110 is heavy duty system that can process 5 slits of 14ga (2mm) mild steel simultaneously. Powered by 6 straightening rollers to remove coil set, the 4.33” 42CrMo4 polished steel rolls can be modified by locking handles with a reference scale. This gentle giant is capable of handling your toughest and most delicate jobs.
