Standard equipment includes the finest Category 4 light curtain to monitor the cutter opening. These
self-checking beams ensure the highest degree of safety for the operator.
The keypad features an advanced, light touch variable speed pinpoint backgauge control to quickly position stock.
Depending on the portion of the pin-point control you touch, the backgauge moves forward or backward at varying
speeds. Or, simply type in the desired position and press the “Send” key. The computer positions the backgauge prior to each cut for maximum productivity.
The line-light cut position indicator projects a line of light to quickly and accurately position each cut, and aid programming of multiple-cut jobs. For pre-cut clamping, such as holding slick stock or verifying cut position, the foot pedal safely gives the operator complete control of the clamp.
Since designing our first paper cutters in 1887, Challenge has become well known for building machines that last. The Titan’s solid cast iron and steel construction provides maximum durability. Our one inch thick solid cast tool grade aluminum table provides the strong work surface required in a production setting.
The system’s single hydraulic motor powers both clamp and knife, without any loss of power or accuracy. Clamp pressure is adjustable, so clamping force can be changed to match specific job requirements. The electronic clamp pressure control (standard 265/ optional 200 and 230) can set clamping pressure from the “Send” screen. During a cut cycle, hydraulic clamp pressure is activated. After increasing to the selected setting, it is maintained throughout each cycle. Hydraulic operation assures more power, less stock spoilage, less maintenance, and greater reliability. After a few minutes of inactivity, the Titan switches into an energy-conserving standby mode.
