Intercept 2.5 Checkpoints

Intercept 2.5 spacer fabrication system rendering
Flanged coil covers
spacer material coil covers
The flanged coil covers come standard on every Intercept 2.5 dual uncoiler. The flanged design prevents tight-loop conditions that can be caused by worn and nicked covers.
Linear bearing loop control
Intercept 2.5 linear bearing loop control
Laser measuring and a target on a linear bearing give precise feedback with no missed reads, even at full speed. Note the laser dot on the block and the laser readout as the loop moves.
Material sensing and display
Intercept 2.5 sensor bankIntercept 2.5 spacer material beacon
This sensor bank identifies the material in the machine and passes that information to the color-coded light above and other portions of the machine, such as the quick-change dies.
Quick change dies
Intercept 2.5 quick change dies
The redesigned dies allow for a one-time setup of the dies, and then the machine automatically switches between die sets based on the material composition.
PLC Control
Intercept 2.5 PLC control
Full PLC readout and controls at each station simplify setup and adjustments. Operators and leads can check machine settings at any time and adjust when needed.
Pneumatic brakes
pneumatic brakes locked
The pneumatic brakes are controlled with the click of a button at the PLC readout stations. No more manual braking, which greatly simplifies setup and adjustments.
Hi-speed electronic crimper
high speed spacer crimper
The redesigned crimper shortens the reaction time so you can run full speed without missing the corner.
Integrated E-stop circuit
machine e-stop
Now with the integrated E-stops, all of them light up when one is activated, but the activated E-stop flashes to identify the location that needs reset.

The relocated main enclosure is such a simple change with a big impact. Now the main controls are right where all the action is to eliminate all that wasted walking.
