Powair guillotines...

Many feeding systems require a facility to eliminate lengths of scrap. Powair Automation offers a range of guillotines designed to cut scrap ladder as it exits the press tool. Powair guillotines operate with speed, save on factory space, and have been designed to the highest safety standards. Guillotines also provide a cost effective solution, saving on labour costs.

Strip Guillotines

Powair offers 4 models with optional extras including guide rollers to assist with the flow of material into the cutting blades, and special control which can be preset to allow up to 20 strokes of the press to one stroke of the guillotine.
