Cutting Solutions

Overview

Rockport Cut Off Saws are designed for continuous use with pneumatic motion control to minimize component failure. We manufacture 3 specifically sized cut-off saws that are used in conjunction with our Spiral Tube Winder to produce “parent length cores” which allow for easier core handling during the secondary operation. The three models are engineered and manufactured in similar fashions with the primary difference being the available processing power.

Products

Model SL Cut-Off Saw

All Cut-Off Saw models are supplied complete and ready to use. Three-axis adjustment assures complete, square cutting. The Rockport Model SL cut off saw is intended for processing tubes that are lighter wall construction and typically in smaller diameters. The SL has a maximum blade stroke length of 10” (255mm) so the ratio of tube diameter to ply width must be considered.

Specifications:

Processing Range Up to 8″ (200mm)
Motor 2 hp
Maximum Stroke 9″ (230mm)
Minimum Cycle 2 seconds

All Rockport Cut-off Saws Feature:

1. Complete Pneumatic Operation

2. Full Adjustment for Blade Depth & Blade Tilt to Assure Square Cut

3. Electronic Brake

4. 72″ adjustable Tube Support System

5. Photoelectric Target Eye

6. Choice of MM Style Blade

Model SM Cut-Off Saw

All Cut-Off Saw models are supplied complete and ready to use. Three-axis adjustment assures complete, square cutting.
The Rockport SM cut off saw is by far the most versatile and therefore most popular of the three cut-offs available. Components are heavy duty to allow processing tubes with up to a ½” wall thickness yet the SM maintains enough precision to process two-ply tubes with a .030” total wall.

Specifications:

Processing Range Up to 16″ (400mm)
Motor 5 – 7 1/2 hp
Maximum Stroke 20″ (500mm)
Minimum Cycle 3 seconds

All Rockport Cut-off Saws Feature:

3. Electronic Brake

4. Adjustable Tube Support System

5. Photoelectric Target Eye

Model SH Cut-Off Saw

All Cut-Off Saw models are supplied complete and ready to use. Three-axis adjustment assures complete, square cutting.
The Rockport SH cut off saw is built using components that are either larger and more substantial than the SM saw or operate with extra support mechanisms to prevent component deflection which may occur when cutting very heavy wall cores. Blade motor can be sized up to and including 10Hp (7.5kw).

Specifications:

Processing Range Up to 20″ (500mm)
Motor 7 1/2 to 10 hp
Maximum Stroke 20″ (500mm)
Minimum Cycle 3 seconds

Dumping Runout

Offered as an optional replacement for the standard fixed “V” guide runout table, the dumping runout fully supports the advancing tube even during the actual cut operation. The Dumping Runout aids in cutoff accuracy and cut quality. Standard length table is 72″ with optional 96″ available.
