THERM-O-TYPE (Booth 4844) An optional air feeder is now available for the Zip-A3E and Zip-TS1 cutter/slitter models.
Since the Zip-A3E and Zip-TS1 were introduced, customer requirements have changed. Many customers are now producing a much larger volume of small quantity orders. Stock requirements have also changed with more work being produced on thicker, and often, coated stocks. To meet customer requirements, THERM-O-TYPE developed the Zip Air Feeder.
The Zip Air Feeder effectively doubles the productivity of the Zip-A3E and Zip-TS1 models. Up to a 13.5-inch stack of paper can be loaded in the feeder. Once fed, sheets are precisely aligned on a full length registration table before entering the Zip cutter/slitter.
The new feeder is controlled through the existing touch screen control. Operators simply press the "Single Sheet Feed" button when running a new sheet length or format. The machine automatically compensates for the sheet length and format so when the operator begins running the order, there is no excess gap between sheets.
