The customer required a machine to cut open both ends of a can to reclaim internal components. The machine is capable of cutting 3 different diameter sizes with minimal change over. Hydraulic cylinders apply pressure to two independent cutting wheels while the can was rotated about its longitudinal axis.
- A can was loaded onto loader arms with the help of an overhead lift assist device.
- The loader arms were manually pushed into the machine.
- Start cycle was initiated and loader arms lifted the cut can out of the rotating chuck.
- Loader arms were manually pulled back out of the machine.
