The Packaging Aid 4000 can count and prepare profiles up to 4 metres in length ready for packing. Even elastic rubber materials can be trimmed with millimetre accuracy since the integrated sensor is specially calibrated for the attached cutting system. The machine cuts automatically and emits an acoustic signal when the pre-programmed number of pieces has been reached and can be packed. All further profiles fall automatically into a pneumatically-controlled intermediate buffer until the operator has retrieved the profiles. The packing assistant also sorts two simultaneously-fed products by allowing them to drop into the separate, vertically-arranged compartments below.
