Sheet CutOff System

The addition of a cutoff system eliminates the need for operators to physically hand-cut sheet material with a knife, which promotes operator safety. In addition to safety, the system produces a straight cut, so startup is faster when introducing sheet to the infeed of your trim press. The Brown cutoff system can be located at either end of any brand of thermoformer, and can be integrated as an option on new equipment or purchased as a stand-alone machine. As with all Brown equipment, the cutoff system is designed to run with the greatest efficiency, and built to provide you years of service.

Servo Ejector

The Brown Servo Ejector Unit provides more production flexibility for thermoformers. Changes can be made to the ejection parameters through the HMI on the fly without having to shut the machine down, and product trimming can function in three different modes of operation.

The unit allows you to:

  • Short eject product on every stroke to remove the product from the trim die, or
  • Short eject product on every stroke with an additional swing through long ejection for counter capabilities, or
  • Swing through long eject product only for high speed applications with counter capabilities.

Parameter changes for acceleration, deceleration and ejection length are made at the operator interface. The long stroke method allows the machine to eject parts in stacks of a preset quantity, eliminating the need for a separate handling operation. Two platen-mounted linear bearing assemblies guide the unit for smooth actuation. Segen cylinders are available within the ejector platen to facilitate quick change.

Oven Door Safety System

This fire protection system is available for retrofit on all Brown ovens and can also be retrofit to many other brands of single-station cut sheet machinery.

Located in the bottom ovens, the system incorporates Teflon® sheet curtains to help reduce the chance of oven damage or an accidental fire. During an emergency stop condition or power outage, the curtain automatically deploys between the sheet and the heating elements. The curtain decreases the chance of melted debris from coming in contact with the oven’s heating elements and protects them from damage.
In the event excessive sheet sag occurs during thermoforming, an independent safety sag eye automatically shuts the oven down, activates the curtain, and an air jet cools the sheet.

Electric Rotate and Shot Pin System

Upgrade existing Brown Rotary Thermoformers with “Push” or “Push/Pull” Rotate Systems to the “state of the art” smooth and positive Electric Gear Rotate System. Successfully installed in applications with 18′ to 50′ wheel diameters and generating rotate speeds as low as 4 seconds, the main features of this system are accuracy, reliability, speed and positive rimlock.

The wheel is indexed utilizing a bull gear mounted on a slewring bearing for precise and stable indexing of the wheel and driven with a gearmotor. The rotate gear is positioned directly under the wheel eliminating center shaft windup resulting in an exceptionally accurate wheel position. Fast acceleration, speed and deceleration of the rotate profile are controlled through the Variable Frequency Drive that is programmed to maximize speed and precision while eliminating wheel shake and shudder. The wheel is additionally supported by perimeter wheel supports and an integral brake within the gearmotor will stop the wheel in the event of an “E-Stop”.

The wheel is registered in place by either a single or dual “Shot-Pin” holding system located at the end of the form station for positive rimlock.

AL90 Four-Way Adjustable Clamp Frame System

This new leading edge, fast, light weight clamp frame system gives you all the latest in four-way adjustable clamp frame technology. The AL90 has the ability to move a short section, as small as 6” to an inventory position without removing it from the frame section, eliminating the need for additional short bars.

The use of quick release pins, Telespar tubing, high temperature Teflon® hose and push-loc quick disconnects allows for tool-less frame changes. These features make the AL90 the easiest, most versatile design in the industry, decreasing the clamp frame change-over time to a fraction of the time. The wide mouth opening for easier positioning of the sheet, coupled with the ribbed edge design and optimum holding force, gives the ability to run minimal offal (3/8″ to 1 1/2″) depending on your process requirements. The aluminum construction allows the system to absorb and dissipate heat faster than traditional systems and decreases the overall weight.
