Programmable Wire Cutter is a low cost, high performance machine
designed to automatically cut accurate lengths of wire without
supervision. Being extremely easy and cost effective to use, the Wire
Cutter represents an important tool for small to large manufacturers of
electronic and electrical products. Rugged, dependable and versatile,
this hard worker will cut wires unattended in either inches or
millimeters, providing up to 10,000 cutting operations each work day.
An internal microprocessor reads the keypad, controls the output display and operates two DC servo motors. One motor operates the cutter blades and the other feeds the wire. An optical encoder on the feed motor enables the system to cut wires with high accuracy and repeatability. The 20 position calculator style keypad is used to enter information to the cutter while the 5 digit display provides information to the user.

The Rhino Programmable Wire Cutter is suitable for those applications requiring from 100 to about 10,000 wires a day. It will cut wires from 28 to 16 gauge copper. Wires may be stranded or solid, insulated or uninsulated. The Cutter is also suitable for cutting other wire-like materials. The Wire Cutter feeds wire at 2.5 inches (63.5 mm) per second and each cut takes approximately 2 seconds. This means that the Programmable Wire Cutter can cut up to 700 eight inch (203 mm) wires in an hour. In the manual mode, the Wire Cutter will dispense wire to the operator in any length desired.
Cutter will accommodate
a wire reel up to 10.0 inches (254 mm) in diameter and 6.0 inches (152
mm) wide in its built-in reel carrier. Wire may also be fed manually or
from a bulk feeder by using the idler pulley provided with the Wire
The cutter blades have four usable sets of edges on them that are easily resharpened or replaced. The blades are machined from hardened tool steel and are spring loaded for long trouble-free service. A felt reservoir supplies lubrication.
Cutter can be serviced by any knowledgeable service technician familiar
with mechanical and electrical devices. Factory service is available
from the Rhino Robotics Ltd. factory.
The Rhino Programmable Wire Cutter is warranted to be free from defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 90 days on all electronic and mechanical parts.
