All-purpose horizontal splitting machine for splitting flexible and hard to split material

Horizontal splitting machine SPLIT-HE 500

Splits sheets and block material with volume weights up to 400 kg/m³ depending on the material and cutting thickness with maximum precision (splitting PE with volume weights up to 100 kg/m³) and high-density materials with hardnesses above 40 shore A.

The perfect splitting machine for the packaging and automotive industries, as well as other technical applications.

  • Innovative knife guide system for maximum cutting quality and accuracy: Includes knife bar with a new geometrical shape, which combines the properties of greater stability but also reduced friction with an exact cutting guide and high knife tension
  • Excellent cutting tolerances thanks to very stable press roller suspension, thus providing greater guide rigidity as well as a significantly more stable, large diameter press roller
  • Stable material support table with optimized table width
  • The new vacuum system provides convincing cutting results thanks to 40% more power compared to its predecessor (BSR-1)
  • Optimized, automatic knife readjustment reduces knife strain by maintaining the position of the knife tip to the pressure roller
  • Two knife drives for more cutting power
  • Less waste by reducing the remaining sheet thickness to 2 mm
  • Short set-up times for fast and efficient production
  • Efficient grinding in a very stable, powerful grinding unit with grinding disks with a diameter of 150 mm
  • Quality assurance through automatic grinding monitored by camera
  • Easy to operate using intuitive touch control system
