Model 1000 ACT Cutting System


The Model 1000 ACT (Adaptive Cutting Technology) Cutting System combines the convenience of a bench-top machine with the consistent performance, accuracy and quiet, maintenance free operation of a servo controlled machine. With all stainless steel construction, the Model 1000 is an ideal cutting system for clean room and medical applications.

Cut capacity is a full 1″ diameter. The line speed range is from 5 to 100 FPM. With both a servo controlled cutter and servo feeder, the system offers precise cut length control for cutting parts up to 9999.99″ in length at up to 350 cuts per minute. Ideal for off-line cutting applications, or on-line applications that require a minimal amount of pulling force. The Model 1000 ACT system provides a high level of cutting torque in a highly mobile package. An easy to use 6” color touch-screen interface allows the operator to program in the cut length and line speed.

Versa Machinery’s ACT software allows a wide range of operation. The Servo Feeder is electronically linked to the Servo Cutter, providing continuous feedback of line speed and part position. This allows precise cut length control over a wide range of cut lengths and cutting rates. The Model 1000, with ACT will operate at rates up to 2,000 cuts/min. An easy to use color touch-screen interface allows the operator to program in the cut length and line speed. The system will automatically choose the correct operating mode for the application. The system chooses from three operating modes, on-demand, cam, or flywheel to provide consistent cutting of part lengths, for the manufacturing of anything from thin washers to long lengths of hose.

The Model 1000 can be purchased with an optional tilting table, allowing operation in either the horizontal or vertical axis. This makes the Model 1000 ACT ideal for on-line cutting of silicone rubber tubing, in conjunction with a vertical or elevated curing system.

The built-in batch control system will allow an optional audible alarm or light indicator to alert the operator at a preset part count, prior to the batch count being reached. For on-line cutting the batch system can be switched off to provide continuous operation. Additional output signals are available to trigger an air ejection system downstream if a transport conveyor and air ejector are used.
