TIP C 1302A / 1302B Modification of Main Drive from DC to AC

TIP C 1302A-B Modification of Main Drive

Machine Model for Improvement

All E.C.H. Will cut-size sheeters type SLK with DC main drive

Description of Improvement

This improvement replaces the obsolete DC main drive from Siemens with a modern AC main drive system and AC motor. A new electrical cabinet, completely pre-assembled with all necessary drive components, is part of the upgrade.

Whereas the old DC main motor requires regular maintenance and contains wear parts that need replacing, the new AC main motor ensures virtually maintenance-free operation. Eliminating the obsolete DC main drive and motor increases the machine’s reliability.

The AC main drive upgrade is ideal where the motor is worn out and needs to be replaced.

TIP C 1302 A: The obsolete DC main drive from Siemens will be replaced by a Siemens AC main drive system and AC motor.

TIP C 1302 B: The obsolete DC main drive from Siemens will be replaced by a Allen Bradley AC main drive system and AC motor.


  • Replacement of obsolete DC main drive prevents unplanned downtimes
  • Maintenance-free, reliable operation

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.
