Tandematic offers next generation
USA based Tandematic, world leader in stenter accessories,
announces the release of the next generation Rail Mounted
Trimmer and Rail Guidance System. These two products will be
showcased at ITMA 2019 in Barcelona Spain.
Tandematic, for over 40 years, has continuously innovated
products whose ultimate goal is to minimize wasted fabric on
stenters. Effective decurling, precision pinning, efficient glue
application and finally, minimizing edge trim to less than 4 mm
means more salable cloth and less waste in landfills.
Developed by a cross functional team of product designers,
engineers, field technicians, and manufacturing specialists, the
next generation products operate efficiently with minimal
downtime, ease of maintenance, and utilize the latest software,
electronics and mechanical innovations (including 3-D printed
parts). Both products are Industry 4.0 compliant.
The Rail Mounted Trimmer - GEN II (pictured left) employs a
shearing action using proprietary mounting of self - lubricated,
hardened blades. Onboard electronics automatically adjust
trimmer speed for accurate, clean cutting while optimizing blade
life. Blades are safely removed for re-sharpening using a single
tool. As part of a corporate sustainability initiative,
Tandematic offers an economical blade exchange program recycling
worn blades for re-use.
Edge sensors working with precision actuators automatically
maintain preset distance between fabric edge and point of
cutting regardless of tension adjustments or process changes.
Trim waste removal is accomplished using a revamped air
management system for the GEN II trimmer. Positive pressure
aspirators effectively remove trim waste and eliminate clogs
common with negative pressure designs.
The entire Gen ll trimmer system uses fewer parts, occupies
less space and adapts to any stenter. Standalone systems also
are available for applications where a stenter is not used.
An equally important component in trim waste reduction is
The Tandematic GEN II Rail Guider (pictured right) utilises
latest sensor technology seeing any color or configuration -
stripes, patterns, etc. without sensitively adjustment. This
feature eliminates sensitive operator tuning. Reflectors or
below web targets are not required.
Updated control center employs an extremely fast zero
dead-band mode for precise exact pinning. Deadband based systems
are satisfied with an inherent error unacceptable when minimal
trim waste is important.
Redesigned servo-motors position the rail through effective
use of a ball screw mechanisms in response to sensor signals
with zero backlash or overtravel. The redesigned rail actuator
uses 30% fewer parts weighing 50% less than earlier versions.
Maximum rail speed is greater than 200mm/s for quickly
accommodating fabric upset conditions (holes, seams, etc.). This
rapid response virtually eliminates mispins and overpinning. The
entire Tandematic product line is optionally available on most
OEM Stenters or adaptable to existing equipment.
Tandematic is currently accepting orders for GEN II products
with Q3 shipments. Visit Tandematic at ITMA Stand H2/A104.
