microcut® Transcend – Clamp/Cut Control System

microcut® Transcend Clamp/Cut Control System allows any flywheel cyclical paper cutting machine to be brought up to modern standards. The system is a complete clamp/cut control system that can replace an existing control system and is available as an OEM package for new machines.

(The system requires installation of a microcut PLUS WS backgauge control system for the operator interface.)

The microcut® Transcend Control System Components:

Transcend Control PCB: Controls all clamping, cutting and safety pin operation. Safety and expansion CPUs for monitoring, cross verification and full machine control.

Knife Position Monitor: Monitors and sends knife motion and position status to the control system.

Clamp Encoder Assembly (optional): Monitors clamp motion for clamp lead (knife delay). Can interface to MIS system for paper height computations.

Power panel: Interfaces the AC power components (main motor, air motor) and circuit breakers (H3 drive and DC power supplies).

Safety Curtains: The system can interface with multiple curtain options.
