TIP C 1301 Modification of Main Drive

Machine Model for Improvement

All E.C.H. Will cut-size sheeters type SLK 440 and 480, 6 -10 pockets, with universal joint shaft between main motor and machine

Description of Improvement

This improvement modifies and overhauls the main drive of the cut-size sheeter, greatly reducing noise emission and vibrations.

Wear and tear parts are reduced to a minimum: the universal joint shaft between main drive motor and machine is replaced by a coupling, and the long universal shaft underneath the main draw drum, connecting left and right side of the sheeter, is eliminated. In addition, the overall number of gears is reduced from six to three. Fewer spare parts mean less frequent and easier maintenance with lower costs.

By removing the universal joint shafts - a main cause for sheet length variations - sheet length accuracy is improved.


  • Fewer parts reduce maintenance cost
  • Improved quality - main cause for sheet length variations is eliminated
  • Smoother machine running with reduced noise emission

A sheeter that we had planned especially for our lightweight specialty papers has become an all-round smart sheeter that can process even heavy grammages up to 300 gsm with maximum cutting accuracy.
