Two kinds of cutting systems are offered by Provea: cut to length (with mechanical stop) and flying cutters.
In the first option, the cutter is fixed. The tube is brought to the right position by conveyors. The measurement is very accurate; it can be made by sensors and mechanical stops. Once the cut is finished, tubes before and after the cutter are conveyed separately. The second one corresponds to continuous production line (welded tubes generally).
The cutters ‘follow’ the tube and cut it while moving. Synchronization is automated and also mechanically ensured by jaws catching tubes.
