The LK 40 cutting machine with shears is mainly intended for cutting of preformed wire ropes. Easy insertion due to its open design and quick operation makes this machine a convenient help in the wire rope industry.
Equipped with an auto switch the motor stops automatically after the cutting operation. The machine is easily started again by pressing the foot pedal. The automatic stop is a measure to bring down the noise level as well as environmental resource saving.
The machine is equipped with a safety device including an inspection window. Rubber flaps on both sides of the opening protect the operator, but still it is easy to enter the wire rope. Operation is made by the hydraulic unit. Cutting capacity of ordinary single layer round strand rope grade 1 960 is up to 40 mm.
Combined with stand and hydraulic unit this unit is ready to cut. The stand can be replaced with a wagon, permitting insertion of the wire rope closer to the ground. The picture above shows a horizontal application, but the cutter can also be mounted vertically on the wagon. Where it is applicable the cutting unit can be mounted on a working bench. The optional Bench attachment is providing a stable base for LK 40.
