Trim-AX™ Heavy Duty Chopper
CAC's Trim-AX heavy duty chopper utilizes a superior design to chop extemely light to very thick and heavy materials. Trim-AX is precision engineered with dual bearing support between rotor and each bearing housing. It's all steel construction is manufactured using precision CNC machining centers to ensure very tight tolerances between rotating blade and bed knife. Vibration, noise and maintenance is all kept to minimum due to superior engineering, design and manufacturing practices of Trim-AX choppers.
Specifically designed to fit CAC's FOX TrimAway® and FOX Runner® pneumatic waste removal systems, Trim-AX choppers offer seamless integration with CAC's line of pneumatic waste removal systems. Trim-AX may also be integrated into existing commercially available and "homemade" systems.
Using the Trim-AX allows an air conveyor system to work over longer distances. In addition using the Trim-AX makes waste handling more efficient and chopped trim takes less space in collection bins.
Trim-AX™ chopper, internal view
Two bladed design supplies approximately 3,450 chops per minute with a 1,725 RPM motor
Exceptionally stable with dual bearing support at each bearing housing and exceptionally heavy duty construction
Works well with FOX TrimAway®, FOX Runner®, other commercially available and customer supplied pneumatic conveying systems
Chopped edge trim is much easier to convey than continuous length edge trim, allowing for very long (200+ feet) pneumatic conveying lengths.
Chopped edge trim takes up less space in collection methods. Waste handling and emptying of collection methods will decrease with chopped edge trim.
What is Web Handling?
Web Handling is the science, engineering and equipment necessary to successfully transport a continuous flexible material through various processes without defect. Enhancing Web Handling with proper equipment will ensure materials are processed at their maximum efficiency, allowing the process to generate maximum profits.
