PROCUT is a high precision Guillotine Backgauge Positioning System that can be installed in any industrial paper cutting guillotine or metal cutting guillotine. The system currently uses our SMC range of motion controllers with their years of proven history for accuracy and repeatability. It has a 5.7" colour screen, memory for 32,000 cut positions, automatic push out, air table control, manual adjustment Dial (Jog Wheel) for fine adjustments, label mode for creating programs automatically, with English and Spanish languages pre-loaded and others available on request. Most importantly, it is easy to install and use!
We offer 2 types of backgauge control systems which use the same controller and software, however one uses DC servo motors and drives whilst the other uses a standard AC motor with inverter as sometimes it is still possible to utilise the original motor.
PROCUT guillotine backgauge control Servo System:
This is a complete servo control system with all cables pre-made and with industrial connectors for easy, fast and reliable installation. The system is fully tested as a kit before leaving our factory to ensure all you have to do is mount the parts, plug the cables in and connect up to the electricity supply. The kit includes the servo motor with an encoder mounted at one end and a toothed pulley mounted on the output shaft. Installation of the motor is straightforward as we provide a mounting bracket with the motor which is then fixed to the back of the machine close to the leadscrew. TRM can also machine the leadscrew pulley providing we are supplied with the dimensions for the leadscrew and keyway.
Electrical installation is also straightforward and requires only mounting the controller and electrical cabinet, positioning the sensors using the brackets provided, then plug the cables to their corresponding socket on the electrical cabinet. If the Jog Wheel option has been purchased, this would then need to be mounted and plugged into it's corresponding connector. This then alows the user fine positional control of the cut position. An adjustment can then be stored as an offset to use on the next batch if required.
Software setup is generally straightforward as inital setup will have been done at the factory. All that remains for the user to do is set the size of the machine, the 'Play' for worn leadscrews, some motor settings may need changing depending on manufacturer used and finally calibrating to the machine. Once the easy to follow instructions have been completed, cut programs can then be entered and run or stored for future use.
If the mechanical parts of the machine are in good condition, the accuracy that can be expected with this system is 0.01 mm. When doing the installation please verify the mechanical parts of the machine are in good condition, failure to do this will create problems on the installation. Specifically check the leadscrew is in good condition and is not too tight or too loose or worn in one place.

PROCUT Guillotine Control with AC motor and Inverter:
This system uses a Standard AC motor which is sometimes already installed in the machine. This is our most economic solution as shipping cost are lower than in the servo system but the installation require more skill as the installer has to terminate some of the cables to the breakout boards and tune the inverter. Due to this the installation might take longer than the PROCUT System with servo explained above.
If the mechanical parts of the machine are in good condition, the accuracy that can be expected with this system is of 0.00 to 0.05 mm. The system includes the following parts:
