Glaves Corporation, a leader in manufacturing and re-sharpening of cutting tools used mainly in textile and polymer industry, has developed GCD series Dry Cut Strand Pelletizers. These pelletizers have high productivity as compared to other pelletizers in this price bracket.
Various cutters, bed knives and feed roller materials are possible to suit the polymer material being cut. The cutter in the pelletizer is both side supported with heavy-duty bearings to avoid vibrations in the assembly resulting in better gap setting which intern leads to better chip cutting and increased cutter life.
High torque geared motors are used so that efficient cutting may be done with a lower rating motor which reduces power consumption considerably. Also, due to direct drive on rotary cutter there is no wastage of power due to slippage.
The top roll is pneumatically pressed onto the strand sheet. The pressure is adjustable through a regulator depending upon polymer being processed.
The top elastomer roll is pneumatically cooled, controlled by a regulator, to improve upon its life. Operator control panel is designed to provide maximum information like actual cutter speed, top roller pressure, top roller cooling,, tripping, power related diagnostics, no-air and fault conditions to the operator.
