The heating tunnel introduced by Rolf Schlicht GmbH is shown flanked by an RS Multicut rotary cutter (left) and RS Multicut RB NG caterpillar system. 
Hard materials may splinter or chip when they are being cut. In-line warming of the material helps to achieve a clean, chip-free cut and avoid post-processing.

A heating tunnel designed to warm rigid plastic pipes and profiles prior to cutting has been introduced by Rolf Schlicht GmbH. Hard materials may splinter or chip when they are being cut. In-line heating of the material helps to achieve a clean, chip-free cut and avoid post-processing.

The tunnel is equipped with two 3,000-W heaters. The heat level is regulated by the conveying speed; a fast on/off function is integrated to further enable precise heat adjustment. Various heat levels can be set to suit different types of polymers, product sizes, and line speeds. Impact-resistant, rigid PVC, HDPE, PB, and PP are typically processed.

Based near Hamburg, Germany, Rolf Schlicht GmbH develops cutting machines and other auxiliary equipment for global markets. It is also a distributor of third-party equipment in Germany and Europe.
