The AKS accu-kut Self Cleaning system does not require any advance floor preparation, like competitive systems.
Simple, Well-Designed, Heavy Duty System that is an Operator’s Dream for maintaining a clean, effective cutting table. When you turn your plasma system on, simply just turn on the Self-Cleaning System, and you’re automatically cleaning!
Continuous Self-Cleaning System design
Quiet, almost silent operation
Doesn’t require your operator to control
No parts sprayed with molten metal after being cut
Simple, heavy-duty design
Integrated clutch and dual drive system helps mitigate jam issues
No floor modification needed
Multi-functional/color Status Light on top of Operator Panel
Simple on/off interface on the controller
Dual Heavy Duty Steel Mill Drag Chains
Central Clutch System and Drive Motor
System does not require constant lubrication
Variable Speed Capability to operate slow and smooth
Equipped with Complete Heavy Duty Plate Floor
Other competitive units have no built-in floors and run on a build-up of debris on the plant’s concrete floor.
With no built-in floor, competitive models allow small pieces of metal to get caught in the floor, creating jam points.
Unit runs continuously
No major build-up of “Hot” debris
Easy pull-out “Refuse Drawer”
Collects the slag and fallen parts
Entire tray can be lifted with a Forklift
Ergonomic waste disposal without heavy lifting
Dual Zone Ducts
These ducts have high temp heat seals and fabricated “perimeter lips” that seal the individual zones well.
The pneumatic cylinders and hard copper piping that operates our zone doors are protected by plate steel shields.
These plate steel shield deflect all debris into the path of the drag chain flights – reducing wear and downtime situations.
Durability : Unlike competitive offerings, the AKS system’s complete, heavy-duty plate floor prevents a build-up of debris on the floor of the production facility. In addition to creating a solid, more rigid table structure, this prevents small pieces of metal from getting caught in the floor, creating jam points. In addition, because the AKS unit runs continuously, there is no major build-up of hot debris, which can warp the thin plate floors of many competitors’ equipment, creating jamming conditions.
Ease of Use : The system requires no operator intervention to run continuously. When cutting is complete, the operator simply rolls out the refuse drawer to remove any smaller cut parts, an ergonomically-friendly task compared to fishing them out from the middle of the table. In addition, the entire tray can be lifted with a forklift for ergonomic waste disposal without any heavy lifting.
Dual Zone Ducts: Located on both sides, intake ducts feature high-temperature heat seals and fabricated perimeter lips that seal the individual zones well, resulting in better flow and suction, and minimal smoke. In addition, the pneumatic cylinders and hard copper piping that operate the zone doors are protected by plate steel shields that deflect any debris into the path of the drag chain flights, reducing wear and downtime situations.
Heavy-Duty Components: Dual heavy-duty steel mill drag chains that are continuously cleaning without operator intervention result in a much lower chance of jamming. If a jam does occur, the drive system allows the operator to reverse the direction to easily unjam the drag chain and flights, minimizing downtime.
Efficient Design: The drive system’s main shaft has two sprockets — one for each chain — with a central clutch system and drive motor. If a jam occurs, the clutch prevents serious damage. This mechanism is mounted outside of the cutting table so no debris is continually falling on the mechanical devices, unlike in competitive models.
Safe Operation: The Self-Cleaning System runs slowly, which increases safety and reduces noise levels compared to fast-operating systems. The system does not require constant lubrication, unlike competitive systems, since lubrication can cause additional smoke and potential fire hazards if not properly specified.
Cost Savings: Easier, faster parts retrieval and debris removal result in more efficient operation and less overall time spent. This, combined with the elimination of manual cleaning, reduces labor costs.
