Appleton MDHS Core Cutter

Appleton's MDHS Core Cutter is a multiple diameter, high speed core cutter with advanced programming capabilities and features. The MDHS is offered in a number of custom configurations with a variety of features, it can also be upgraded to operate with Appleton Automation™

Chucked Core - The MDHS features a chucked core for cut length accuracy and two opposed knives providing rapid cutting even when a free wheeling blade is used.
Easy to Operate – The operator interface is menu driven - providing simple, easy to learn operations. Cut sets of varying lengths or batches of the same length are easily entered by the operator. The operator display is a large screen supported by function keys.
Quick Set-up - The MDHS.S and MDHS.M are both designed for quick change-over -- taking set-up time out of those short runs. Just change the chuck jaws and cutting pads for the new core internal diameter. A single adjustment prepares the core cutter for a new core outside diameter. If you are changing core I.D., a single fastener releases the cutting pads for easy swap-out.
Rugged Construction – The MDHS series of core cutters maintains Appleton's high standards for robust construction and durability. Constructed entirely in the U.S.A., the MDHS series of core cutters is built to last a lifetime.
Installation and Training – Professional installation and training services are readily available from skilled technicians with years of core cutter experience.
