Cutter Options and Accessories

DM&E has developed a wide range of upgrades, improvements, retrofits and accessories for DM&E and Lummus cutters.  Some  of these are standard on new cutters.

 
Reel Attachment Device

REEL ATTACHMENT DEVICE

 

The DM&E Reel Attachment Device (RAD) is standard equipment on the 120 Series Cutters and optional on 60 and 90 Series Cutters. The RAD allows tool-free installation of cutter reels.  A pneumatically driven drawbar raises the cutter reel and locks it into position. The drawbar also lowers the reel for replacement. The RAD mechanism incorporates a torque sensing limit switch and a logic circuit to prevent over-tightening. Retrofitting requires a new main drive shaft and a separate electric/pneumatic circuit for installation and operation. DM&E technicians may field install the RAD.  It is available as an option on new cutters.

Cutting Load Indicator

CUTTING LOAD INDICATOR

 

The DM&E Cutting Load Indicator (CLI) monitors and displays cutting forces in tow cutters. Cutting load in a radial blade cutter is a combination of two forces. The first is the force required to cut the fiber. Second, additional forces transport the cut staple toward center of the cutter reel for discharge. Total denier, denier per filament, cut length, crimp, material, and the pin shape are only some of the factors that influence each value. The CLI dynamically displays and measures these combined forces during the cutting process.

The Cutting Load Indicator screen displays an instantaneous graph of cutting pressure, and a graph of the load average over extended periods. The CLI also provides continuous digital readout of each value. Adjustable alarms for peak and average loads may be used to stop the cutter and signal for operator attention.

All software and hardware are included.  Field installation on existing systems is available and optional for installation on all new cutters.

Maintenance/Process Seminar

CUTTER PROCESS AND MAINTENANCE SEMINARS

 

Our skilled and experienced engineers work alongside your maintenance and process technicians.  We review process fundamentals.  We conduct a “hands-on” equipment teardown and reassembly, stressing safety and quality operational techniques.

Your personnel will be able to take advantage of our many years of experience in different situations.  We can clarify issues and solve problems.  A final written summary will be available for management, with recommendations for improvements and an overall performance evaluation
