They are transversal sheeter models specifically designed to cut heavy materials. With a CTX it’s possible to cut all the same material types as the other families (see proper pages), but with a weight that can be reached the 1000 grams per square meter! So they are machines designed to cut cardboard, aluminium laminates and plastic films also with a some millimetres thickness.
They however are custom machines, built by Cavalleri following the customer’s needs. In fact the material types to be cut are so particular that needs specific machine designs, different for each case.
The constructive structure of CTX will be different than the one of the another families, because it musts to be more strength and resists to the stresses that the cut material types impose. So every CTX will be visually different. The structure also depends by the maximum sheets size that the customer desires. In fact there are CTX with default dimensions, but more in general Cavalleri can build machines for totally custom dimensions. The maximum cut dimensions are however upper than the Syncro or Electrical Axis case. Machines that produce sheets of 1500×2500 mm are common.
The identification codes of CTXs are quite different than the other families (see proper pages). In them are contained maximum length and width. So, for example, a CTX 15-10 model can produce sheets wide 1500 mm and long 1000 mm.
In the CTX case the machine hasn’t the collection drum, but the cut material is piled directly after the cut. It exists two different pilling modes, that determinate the two different sheeters names: “a squame” e “a getto”. In the first case after the knife there is a double series of belts that take the sheet and guide it on the pile; in this manner the sheet is slowing down and it doesn’t hit on the leveling squares on the high pile. In the second case there is only one series of belts, and the cut material is piled by fall. In respect to the material to be cut, it is mandatory choose the right type of sheeter.
The CTX machines are motorized like the Electrical Axis ones. So there is a motor to the towing and transport group and an another motor for the rotary knife. Usually, because the weight (and thus the inertias) are larger, the motors size are consequently chose.
The machine is designed to have a cut precision about one millimeter, and its speed is strictly related to the used material.
Also these machines, like in the Electrical Axis case (see the proper page) are managed by the touch screen operator panel, with few differences. Furthermore all the machine have a modem, usable to connect to the machine in remote mode. In that case it’s not necessary a technical intervention on site, but it’s possible resolve the problems come from the electronic parts directly in our offices, with a clear economization of time and money.
Cavalleri, thank to its technical support, is able to intervene and resolve all the problems the machine can have (of mechanical, electric or electronic nature). In every part of the world the machine is, it’s always possible to have a highest specialized technician to resolve every type of problem, for a totally machine revamping or only to answer at every question on the machine’s functionality. The reaction times are very quickly, to limit at the best the problem derived from the machine stop.
