Traveling-head machines for in-line processing of rigid profiles are often regarded as the »King Discipline« of cutting machine technology. Intensive dialogue with leading end-users and the many years’ experience of our designers have produced a ground-breaking product concept.

Thanks to a servo-linear drive as standard for the working tool carrier, the traveling-head machines achieve a very long processing time of several seconds for outstanding end-cut quality. At the same time, a very short cycle time is achieved for the processing of short part lengths at high line speeds. In addition, there is a servo-linear drive for the circular knife penetration with varying penetration speeds for different parts of the material section, for example a careful knife entry speed or a knife exit at lower speed to reduce the formation of sprags.

We also offer a great choice of knife rotation speed range alternatives, from 2,000 - 6,000 rpm or 4,000 -12,000 rpm. In this way, there are no limits to the use of different types of circular knife types, including clamp/cut in traveling head operation. For complete in-line processing of rigid plastic profiles, our traveling-head machines offer a powerful platform that can be adapted to many tasks by the employment of rapid-change tooling or drilling and milling modules.  

Key Features

  • For the “in-line” machining of rigid materials
  • Precise and synchronous in-line machining for rigid materials
  • Flexible retooling for different cutting technologies
  • Holder for all tools in the Metzner MBS series
  • Multiple machining with one workpiece carrier
  • PLC controller as standard
  • Optimised carriage return (as quickly as needed)
