Appleton S210 Semi-Automatic Core Cutter

Easy-to-use, precise, creating clean cuts, the Appleton S210 Semi-Automatic Core Cutter is an affordable, low-volume core cutter built on a rugged steel frame and Appleton's well-known reputation in the industry.

  • Easy to Use – With the core manually advanced to the target length, the operator needs only step on the foot pedal to activate the air-assisted cut-off knife
  • Precise Cuts - The air-assisted fixed knife cuts to within +/-0.010 inch of the targeted length
  • Clean Cuts – The fixed knife of the S210 Core Cutter makes clean, burnished cuts while generating virtually no dust or noise – making for a superior cut and a better work environment
  • Energy Saving – Every Appleton core cutter features an auto-shutoff that turns off the cutter when left unattended, eliminating unnecessary energy costs while minimizing wear on moving cutter parts. As always, workers are safer when unattended machinery is not running
  • Simplified Adjustment – Different core diameters require a simple change of the core mandrel. When core diameters change more frequently, Appleton's IDC (Instant Diameter Change) option will speed changeovers and improve productivity
  • Installation and Training – Professional installation and training services are readily available from skilled technicians with years of core cutter experience
