Model GB Fiber Chopper
This is our small fiber chopper designed for those whose chopping requirements are not demanding in volume. The cutter roll is fitted with .035 x 1/2” tapered razor blades to cut the fiber. They are set apart on the roll at your specified intervals (1/4” minimum).
The idler roll serves to keep the fiber strands feeding properly. It provides pressure on the fibers to prevent vibration or bouncing. This idler roll is set close to the knife blades on the front face of the mandrel.
This unit will serve you well for many years with minimum maintenance. Give us a call today for your quotation.
