Machinery for the Wire & Fastener Industries

VC-MS



The maintenance free VC machines are the ideal solution to small production batches of hi quality parts, combining the advantages of the Flying straightener with supported cut, positive stop and fully mechanical drive. 

  • VC series; Mechanical cut, High Speed machines up to 1.5m (60”) long parts.
  • VC-MS series; patented Mechanical Servo machines; Unlimited length capacity.
  • VC-S series; Ultra Hi-Speed machines for very short parts, up to 1,200 PPM.
  •  Square Cut face with no burrs. The wire is supported all along the cutting operation.
  • Stainless Steel Track requiring No Adjustment when changing wire diameter.
  • Quick-Clamp positive stop assures length repeatability of ±0.1mm (0.004”).
  • Length change in seconds without dismantling parts.  Optional digital length readout.
  • Quick-Change wire diameter using Preset straightener plugs and cut-off tooling.
  • Extended Length range; from 10mm (3/8”) long slugs to any length in one machine.
  • Practical Cut-Off speeds; 600 PPM in ø12mm (1/2”) & 250 PPM in ø25mm (1”).  
  • Reciprocating Straightener (Equivalent to Flying Shear) with a combination of stationary and rotating dies to ensure better surface quality and faster change-over time.
  • AC speed controllers on all motors enable high production rate for any wire diameter & length combination.
  • Powerful air / electric brakes assure better safety and no short cuts.
  • Patented mechanical drive on the cutting motor performs as a clutch and extends the machine range from slugs to any length in the same machine.
  • Maintenance Free machine. No Hydraulics.  No Clutch. No wearing parts.
