Back supports allow to move cut pieces according to production needs. They are available in 4 versions.
Version “Tilt to back” [standard] moves vertically and rotates. It lowers during the cutting phase and then tilts to let the cut piece slide away to the back.
Version “Tilt and drop” [optional], as well as the vertical and tilting movement also moves horizontally. Sheet support moves away from under the sheared piece to let if fall into the scrap box. It is especially useful for small pieces, that can therefore be easily retrieved from the front of the machine, as well as be stacked on a pallet.
Version “Tilt and front” [optional] as well as the basic movements for back unloading, also has the Return To Sender function. After the cut, the support lifts the cut piece back to the cutting line. The back gauge then pushes it out on the bench, reducing time used to handle cut pieces.
Configuration “Front and drop” [optional] is the most complete, because in addition to the lowering and tilting movement also can drop sheared pieces in the front scrap box or bring them back to the operator thanks to the Return To Sender function.
