  • Cell insulator length determined by mechanical linkage and stop.
  • Cell material cut lengths up to 108 mm (4.25 inches).
  • Cell insulator cut lengths of most insulating materials +/- 0.25 mm (+/- 0.01 inches).
  • Manual load and unload – armature horizontal.
  • Allen-Bradley Micrologix Programmable Controller.
  • Allen-Bradley Microview Display, 2 line, 16 characters.
  • Operator Control Panel on swivel pendant.
  • Sensor to detect paper movement.
  • Low material, malfunction, and cycle interrupt lights.
  • Guarding with electrical interlocks.
  • Welded steel frame and robust side plates.
  • Metric construction where possible.
  • Cycle time dependant on model.
  • Electric jog (movement) for safe positioning (normal stop) in order to return to “start” position.

MODELS

  • CIM-8000   – Manual load/unload - maximum stack height -108 mm (4.25 inches) at 3.75 cells per second.
  • CIMA-8000 – Automatic - Lift station - maximum stack height -108 mm (4.25 inches) at 3.75 cells per second.
  • CIM-8500   – Manual load/unload - maximum stack height - 60 mm (2.38 inches) at 4.75 cells per second.
  • CIMA-8500   – Automatic - Lift station - maximum stack height - 60 mm (2.38 inches) at 4.75 cells per second.

OPTIONS

  • Material slitting mechanism to automatically cut cell material to desired width.  Material width to be at least 3.2 mm (0.125 inches) greater than desired final width.
  • Second material supply.
  • Skewed armatures up to 15 degrees are accommodated with machine set at an angle to material handling.

TOOLING

  • Tooling to accommodate most insulating materials including rag, paper, laminates, mylar, or other similar plastic materials and laminates up to 0.38 mm (0.015 inches) thickness.  Thicker materials require custom designs.
  • Tooling consisting of lift chuck, upper and lower form rolls, cell cavity, nose piece, ram, tamp blade, and knife assembly.
  • Tooling designed to provide cell material formed to precisely fit the contour of the lamination.
