The American-based AZCO Corp. is a manufacturer of easy to use and reliable modules for feeding, cutting, inserting and dispensing. Seamlessly integrating their units into an existing converting or packaging line can increase production speed and reduce downtime, which ultimately saves time and money. Their feeding and cutting units for flexible material include cut-to-length knife assemblies, guillotine knife assemblies, punches, rotary cutters, sheeters, slitters, and unwinds.
The modular guillotine knife assembly is ready to install as stand-alone or in-line units. The units can be mounted in any position for convenient operation. They cut a wide variety of flexible materials such as film, foam rubber, foil, hook & loop, light gauge metals (.25mm/01 in.), nonwovens, paper, ribbon cables, and many others.
The small SUR-CUT knife assemblies are widely used for cutting various strips of flexible materials. The open frame design gives easy access to the material. Mounting holes allow quick installation.
The cutting system equipment covers the full range from simple edge trim systems to fully automated slitters. The equipment can be installed either on new or existing slitter rewinders with various time setting options.
The combination of a knife assembly and a roll feeder creates a SUR-SIZE™ cut-to-length assembly. The SUR-SIZE ™ cut-to-length assemblies are capable of handling a wide variety of flexible materials. The cut to length assembly is a reliable, simple to use, self-contained module. It is a complete unit that delivers a finished product to your specifications. The unit can run to a length or to a registration mark.
Our modular rotary knife assemblies are available in many sizes. This unit is capable of making hundreds of cuts per minute. They can easily be incorporated into new machines or inserted into an existing process. We can customize our standard designs to meet your requirements. The output shaft is provided to be driven or we could install a drive package for you.
The AZCO ACU-SLIT™ slitter module can operate as an in-line option on cut-to-length assemblies, a replacement for worn slitter stations on any web machine, or an add-on to any web processing equipment. Crush cut slitters effectively cut thicker, low density materials such as filter media and non-woven. This is a convenient unit for frequent changeovers. A shear cut slitter provides clean, precise cuts on flexible materials. It also provides the longest blade life.
This modular knife assembly can be made to any size up to 5.5m/18′ cut width. A rotary crush cut blade is ideal for perforating, crush cutting, or score cutting of the material. Also available is the rotary shear cut blade, which cuts against a hardened anvil. Two actuators are available: a pneumatic system or a digital electric drive package.
Our modular punch assemblies have a punch-and-die design to make custom-shaped cut-outs. Our punch units use hardened-steel tooling that is clean-cutting and fast-acting. The assembly can be mounted in any orientation, so you can add it to any converting, processing, or assembly line in any way you see fit! Just bolt it on!
The 5D pouch dispenser is most commonly used for dispensing desiccant and oxygen absorbers. It is able to run products from all manufacturers, giving you the freedom of choice to get the most competitive pricing for your material. It is compact, easy to use, and affordable. The dispensing head is compact in size, only 178mm [7”] wide x 305mm [12”] high x 356 [14”] deep, making it ideal for tight spaces or to automate a manual process. It also affords the option of adding additional heads for higher production requirements. Using multiple heads is advantageous because you can add more capacity to a line as your demands require, and they are easy to move from line to line, reducing your actual cost. The all-electric design requires only standard outlet power.
