- Spadone’s vast amount of industry experience and product testing have perfected the design of pneumatic and hydraulic cutters to accommodate a maximum cut width of 72″ and a maximum cutting height of 48″. We have engineered a great deal of flexibility into our cutters for simple integration into preexisting systems as well as the capability to suit any customer need or request.
Designed to effortlessly perform cutting processes and integrate into any customer operation
- Spadone Cutters are available options for connection both static and electrically powered in-feed and out-feed conveyance operations which can be vital for cutting material at constant or variable index lengths.
- Standard design packages supply a two-push button system using anti-tie down logic which requires both buttons be depressed simultaneously for operation thereby removing any chances for operator pinch points. Signal actuated systems are also available to connect cutter operations with customer line controls.
- Along with the anti-tie down logic, all cutters are supplied standard with machine guarding for operator safety. Machine guarding is framed in steel with clear paneling; or can be customized to the customer’s specifications and company guidelines. Additional safety parameters such as light curtains and pull cords are available upon request.
