Elektron B1 with one Bayonet Mount tool holder
The Elektron B1 is a single bayonet toolholder automated cutter.
It is intended for work where one bayonet mount tool is used for most production jobs, but there is a requirement to used other tools from time to time.Since the Elektron B1 carries bayonet mount tools, its main use is where factories need to carry a powered tool such as a reciprocating blade cutter or ultrasonic tool. If powered tools are not required, then anElektron Mono single cam-lock tool holderis the right machine.
The Aeronaut Elektron B1 is a versatile heavy-duty plotter cutter which combines the accuracy and reliabilty of the Elektron chassis with the versatility and industrial strength of Aeronaut’s well proven bayonet-mount quick change tooling. Aeronaut introduced bayonet-mount quick change tools to plotter cutters in the mid-90’s.
The large bore steered toolholders allow powered tools such as reciprocating blade cutters to be carried meaning the Elektron B1 can be used for applications where thick and difficult materials have to be cut such as corrugated cardboard, box making, composites, rubber, cork and filter materials.
When fitted with ultrasonic tools, the Elektron B1 can be used to cut many technical textiles which are not possible to cut by conventional methods, and to cut and edge seal synthetic fabric.
Tools can be changed in 10 seconds with complete indexing of tool centring, angle and height. The toolholders lock in as easily and quickly as the lens on a 35mm SLR camera.Use a rotary blade cutter for fast cuts and a tangential knife for details Fit a creasing tool for setting fold lines.
