Edge-trims are a common waste in sheet extrusion lines. The most common solution to handle this waste edge-trim is a two-guillotine system with one for each edge trim. Integrated with the extrusion line it continuously cuts the edge trims with the cut pieces falling onto a conveyor belt which is then fed to a granulator.
Integrated Guillotine on Granulator
Here a Rapid G-14 Guillotine is fully integrated with a Rapid 150-35 granulator for closed-loop solution. With this solution, you can easily recycle the edge-trim waste and feed it directly back to the extruder without contamination.
Dual Guillotine System
Here two Rapid G-27 Guillotines are mounted on rails for easy adaptation to the width of the extrusion line. A conveyor belt is added to the guillotines to transfer the cut strips to granulator/container.
