Core Cutter Upgrades
Auto Indexing Knife
Hands Off Blade Adjustment
The operator sets the cycle counter based on your experience with the cores you regularly cut. The indexer will advance the knife 3/16" on its circumference each time the count is reached. Should a knife be prematurely damaged, the operator can signal an advance to the new edge. The only time the operator handles the knife is when it has indexed a full revolution and needs replacement. This counter can be panel installed in new cutters, or provided as an "add-a-panel" kit for core cutters already in service.
We provide retro-fit kits for all models of Appleton Core Cutters. A control panel is mounted to the cutter frame, the knife holder is swapped out and air and electrical connections made per the included instructions. All parts and fittings are included. PLC controlled units may require a program upgrade. The conversion takes between one and four hours dependent on core cutter model.
Instant Diameter Change System
Quickly Change Diameters Without Changing Mandrels
Appleton's patented Instant Diameter Change (IDC) Mandrel System provides a multiple core diameter capability with a single mandrel and interchangeable cartridges.
The IDC system features a mandrel with a heavy duty drive to handle a specific range of diameters. The IDC base mandrel is built to the smallest diameter of each range. Lightweight Sleeves or End Plugs provide support for larger core diameters. The patented IDC cartridge is a pre-assembled unit that includes the head jaws, cone, springs and pad mounting cup. The components are optimally adjusted, requiring only that the operator slide the assembly onto the pull rod and secure it with the quick release pin.
Fits all Universal Models
This system will fit existing S200 and S210 Semi-Automatics,
A300 and A301 Automatic Core Cutters, A350, A360, A400 Hydraulic Core
Cutters, P500 and P510 Programmable Core Cutters (programmable cutters may require program changes). Note that an IDC base mandrel is required for the IDC cartridges.
* With modifications the Instant Diameter Change System(IDC) can be added to most Pre-Universal Appleton Core Cutters such as Model(s) BI, D, S or others. Contact Appleton Mfg. Division to verify availability.
Base Mandrel Diameter Range
Eliminate a Source of Cut Length Error
This high-precision electronic device has a digital display unit and linear scale which eliminate visual measurement guesswork, and reduce machine setup time. The display can be easily switched to provide output in decimal inch, millimeters or fractions (1/16, 1/32, 1/64).
Digital Readout for New or Existing Core Cutters
This 4 hour procedure requires that the target tube be removed, holes drilled, and the scale mounted. Tube supports in the cutter frame are also removed, holes drilled for brackets and the digital display mounted. The wiring is straight-forward as the Digital Readout is battery powered.
Replacement for Sheet Steel Hoods
Approximately a 40lb difference in weight between the sheet steel hoods and the ABS Plastic Hoods.
