LKA 28-UL12 is a semi-automatic cutting machine for wire ropes with a diameter of 5-12 mm. It can cut wire rope up to diameter 28mm and it will be able to coil wire rope up to diameter 12 mm.
The wire rope cutting machine consists mainly of: one feeding device with additional measuring device, one hydraulic cutter and one coiling unit. The feeding unit is equipped with slow start and soft retardation of the feeding speed before cut with high precision. This machine is intended for cutting pre-formed wire ropes and the capacity is Ø 5-12 mm. Optional wire rope guide can be added for cutting Ø 3-4 mm wire ropes in the machine.
An independent measuring system is standard to ensure very high accuracy. LKA 28-UL12 has a built in calibration cycle which gives a very high accuracy of the cut length.
The machine has a very low noise level and is environmentally friendly. The feeding unit is operated pneumatically. LKA 28-UL12 is also equipped with a coiling unit to make the wire rope into a coil that is easy to remove. The control system is based on a PLC with a 7″ touch screen.
Hydraulic shears perform the cutting operation. The shears are designed for wire ropes with grade 1960. When cutting wire rope of higher grade, the lifetime of the shears will be reduced. The cutting shears are easy to change. The fixed shear is equipped with eight cutting edges and the movable shear has four cutting edges.
