ProJet will deliver a new dry end Tail Cutter to Andritz in Graz, Austria. The order was included in ProJet’s first quarter 2022 orders received. The value of the order will not be disclosed. The Tail Cutter is part of a big rebuild that Andritz is doing for a customer in Eastern Europe to improve speed and paper quality.
The ProJet Radial Saw Tail Cutter is designed to be highly reliable and the Tail Width is adjustable from 20-300mm (0.8-12 in.) The Tail Cutter generates a 100% reliable clean cut, guaranteeing maximum reliability of Tail Threading and therefore reliability of the machine. The Tail Cutter will be installed before the reel at the end of the machine.
The radial saws are made of hardened steel, with typical sizes between 200-400mm. Customers that have these Tail Cutters installed, immediately notice the reduction in dirt and dust build up in the cutting area, which A. Leads to a cleaner and healthier working environment for operators and B. Maximizes reliability of the Tail Cutting and Tail Threading procedure on a paper machine. No vacuum or dust bag are required so maintenance is minimized and fire hazards are eliminated.
The equipment is scheduled to be delivered in 2022 and installation & start-up in Q4, 2022.
