Automatic set cutting from trim width parent cores conveyed directly into the winder assures minimum operator interaction and minimum core waste while affording most accurately cut cores.

The system is interfaced with the mill computer. The automatic core cutter is fed from three belt hoppers which have a combined core storage for more than 300 sets.

For minimum operator work load and clean operation, the auxiliary equipment includes a core waste shredder, high capacity dust extractor and a briquette press.
