microtrack, part of the well-known family of microcut® automation systems, was specifically designed to increase the productivity and accuracy of manually operated paper cutters. It does so by eliminating the time consuming, error prone need for repetitious decision making, substituting in its place the accuracy and reliability of computer control. In addition to the above benefits, microtrack is a cost-effective alternative to replacing damaged glass scales and older metal position indicator bands.
Simple to install and operate, this cost effective, microprocessor based unit can be added to any machine, regardless of brand or size. It features Manual, Program and Automatic modes, with both visual and audible alerts to inform the operator when the backgauge is properly positioned. The operator can program the easy-to-read display for inches, centimeters or millimeters.
In use, the operator selects the Program mode and proceeds to cut the first lift of paper. While doing so, the system stores into memory the precise location of each cut. Having completed cutting the first lift, the operator then switches to the Automatic mode at which point the system, through use of up and down arrows, guides him to the next cut location. When the correct position is reached, an audible alarm is sounded and the display flashes, signaling the operator it is O.K. to proceed. Up to 50 cut locations for any given job may be stored in memory.
microtrack can be installed on your present machine in a matter of hours, with no special tools or skills, leaving the machine's existing controls and safeties undisturbed. Power is supplied by a transformer, which can be plugged into any convenient wall outlet eliminating the need for costly wiring.
