The KFP-V unit has been designed to remove misprinted text from insulated cables and plastic tubing.
The two stage process consists of first dowsing the cable with a suitable, liquid agent and then passing it through two sets of driven nonwoven tapes that wipe off the print.
The liquid agent is drip fed onto the cable or tubing and evenly spread via static brushes. The cable or tubing then passes through two sets of off-set nonwoven tapes that wipe off the print. The tapes are mechanically driven and run in the opposite direction to the cable flow. The continuously moving, infinitely variable speed of the tapes ensures the tape in contact with the cable is always clean. As each pair of cleaning tapes is off-set by 90 degrees, this together with adjustable pressure rollers ensures the complete circumference of the cable is covered / wiped.
The complete unit is provided with operator friendly, hinged enclosures to which an extractor fan system can be fitted in order to keep the working area free of any fumes.
The KFP-V system is suitable for cable diameters ranging from 5 mm (.20‘‘ ) to 25 mm (1“) / (others on request).
The line speed and consumption of cleaning materials (liquid agent / nonwoven tape / brushes) depend on the cable material and also vary according the amount and density of the misprint to be removed.
