Upgraded Paper Tube Cutter

After the last paper tube is cut, the automatic core lifting switch lifts a new paper tube upward, and the new paper tube then rolls down to the feeding trough, waiting for the pneumatic pushing rod to push it into the mandrel and tube gripper.

You only need to manually preload the mother tube to the paper tube rack.

In terms of tube gripping, 4 pneumatically actuated mechanical grippers are applied, these grippers’ positions could be adjusted, and different diameter paper cores could be cut by our Jota JT-SL-2000C cardboard tube cutter.


4 Pneumatically Actuated Mechanical Grippers

In order to let you get a better understanding of the Jota JT-SL-2000C Automatic Paper Core Cutter, you could watch the following presentation video for reference first.

As you could see in the video after the mother core is gripped, it moves backward first, then moves forward. Such round trip is realized by the cooperation of lead screw and servo motor.

Of course, several other important components are also involved, such as cable carriers, linear guideway, and limit switches.

All these components ensure that each time’s paper tube round trip is accurate, avoids deviations of tube cutting length, and minimize the waste of your mother core material.

In terms of tube cutting, three main points must be emphasized to you.

Firstly, pneumatically control automatic rotation blades, effectively extends the blades’ service life;



Secondly, core support height is adjustable to suit different ID cores;

Thirdly, as diameter mold is introduced to this section, it is not only useful for adapting to different diameter paper tubes but also helpful for extending blades and mandrel life.

9. What Are the Different Automaton Degrees for Paper Core Cutters?

The machines are either automatic, semi-automatic, or manual. At Jota Machinery, we offer all these three types of machines. It usually depends on what you need, and what’s best for the material you’re using.

Nonetheless, all three automatic degrees are helpful in cost-saving, time-saving, labor-saving, and improving productivity. Let’s look at the machines.

a) The Manual

Jota manual paper tube cutting machine model is JT-600, which is a very simple machine, and the operator can use it in just 5-10 minutes.

b) Fully and Semi-Automatic

If your budget allows, you should consider Jota’s completely automatic paper tube cutting machine.

Because it has a fully autonomous feature, no dedicated operator is required, lowering labor expenses.

The operator of the automatic core cutting machine only needs to place the long paper tube on the rack before starting the machine, then start the machine, and the machine will do the rest of the work.

Furthermore, a fully automatic cardboard core cutting machine includes an automatic rotation blade to improve blade service life.

The blade rotates a specific angle after each cut, avoids cutting against the tube at a fixed position, extends blade service term, finally saves cost.

Besides, such a fully automatic cardboard core cutting machine’s working speed is much faster than manual or semi-automatic type cardboard cutting tools.

Therefore, as long as you own this automatic cardboard core cutting machine, the production efficiency of paper tubes will be greatly improved, and you can save a lot of labor costs.

10. How much Does a Paper Core Cutting Machine Cost?

The price for a paper cut core automatic machine ranges from $2,000 to $30,000 depending on the model.

The models are based on the paper tube. What’s the paper tube length? What’s the tube’s inner diameter? And what’s the paper tube thickness?

The model is also based on the automation degree. In other words, is the machine manual, semi-automatic, or fully automatic? As expected, the manual core cutting machines cost less than both semi-automatic and fully automatic.

The fully automatic cutters are the most expensive, but they are not prohibitively pricey! This is because completely automatic core cutting machines eliminate the need for manual work, saving you money in the long run.

Jota Machineries’ paper core cutters are a good investment from a financial standpoint. You’ll obtain a good return on investment whether you buy a manual paper core machine, a semi-automated machine, or a completely automated one.

11. Do You Offer Replacements for Cutter Blades? What’s the Breakage Rate?

Since paper core cutter blades are usually the biggest victims of replacements, we suggest you to purchase more vulnerable parts.

When it comes to the cutter blades’ breakage, you need to understand that the rate is understandably high. But not too high to be costly on your business.

The breakage rate depends on the machine’s rate of usage. The more it’s used, the more you’ll experience cutter blade breakages. However, this shouldn’t much of a problem with Jota Machineries.

We’ve made our core cutter blades rotate at an angle after each cut. Which keeps the blades from damaging thus extending their service life.
