The patented Automated Indexing Knife (AIK) for fixed knife cutters from Appleton Manufacturing

November 30, -0001

automatically rotates the core cutter knife to produce more clean cut cores from every knife. The indexer automatically and precisely rotates the knife based on a preset number of cuts. While significantly extending knife life, hands-free automatic knife adjustments also im­prove worker safety and decrease downtime. Oper­ators now only handle the knife for blade replacement. The AIK can be easily retrofitted to existing Appleton core cutters or added to new models. This easy-to-install indexer includes a control panel interface and a new knife holder.
