Options and Accessories

for RX-200 & RX-240 Series Automatic Strip Cutters

Choose from several optional attachments and accessories for the RX-200 and RX-240 (and some RX-100) Series Automatic Strip Cutting Machines.


All models are now progammed to accept a photocell for photo-registration cutting. All that is needed is the proper contrast photocell for the material to be cut. Also available is the option of attaching an automatic hot foil marking device.

Photocell Registration Cutting for Elastic & Webbing


Here is the RX-240-SCL automatic hot knife programmed to cut an elastic strap with a woven logo.


After making the needed length and search settings, the machine will perform the following steps automatically:

  • measure a set length (in this case, 200mm)

  • slow down and search for the registration mark within a  search window (50mm)

  • locate the leading edge of the logo on the material

  • index an additional user-defined length (25mm) to position the cut line at the knife


(This machine is running at only 10% speed to permit viewing the programmed functions)


The machine will automatically stop if the registration mark is not located; if the material supply is depleted; or the preset quantity has been reached.


Photocell Registration Cutting for Ribbon


Here is the RX-200-SCL automatic hot knife cutting a printed ribbon with a logo. It is programmed to detect every third logo, find the leading edge of the third logo, and then index an additional length for knife positioning.


(The machine is running at approx. 50% speed)


The machine automatically stops if the registration mark is not located; if the material supply is depleted; or the preset quantity has been reached.

An optional 'air-assist' system is being used to help guide the ribbon through the knife.

Splice Detection & Removal System


Do you cut life-critical webbing such as is used on seat-belts, safety harnesses or load-bearing slings? If so, you are probably aware of the extra cost involved with ensuring these spices do not find their way into your product. 

All RX-series strip cutting machines now have the built-in option of adding a splice detecting sensor to locate the splice as it is being measured. When the sensor detects a splice the machine will index it to the knife, cut the webbing, and then resume normal cut-to-length without counting the spliced part.

RX-105 Series Winding - Blocking Devices


Wind precut lengths of webbing into rolls with this simple table-top winding device. Variable speed DC motor drive with foot-pedal control is fast and simple. Winds rolls to 20" in diameter with the standard model. 

RX-105-305 for rolls up to 12" (31cm) diameter

RX-105-450 for rolls up to 20" (50cm) diameter

Model RX-105-XXX-C (not shown) uses an programmable counter which will measure webbing during winding and automatically stop at a preset length. Ideal for measuring and winding long lengths when used with a pneumatic hot knife.
