Floor Tile Cutter
Floor Tile Cutter “Cookie Cutter”
The cutter is air controlled with a hydraulic ram for the cutting and forming. The carriage moves on two 1-1/2″ diameter linear ball bearings. In operation, a measuring wheel rides on the clay columna and signals the carriage to release after moving approximately 3″. The vertical ram moves the top platen down to cut, then reverses up. On the way up the ram signals the carriage to return and the carriage moves to the starting position. Dies are made on a Bolster Plate and fit into a slot for a quick change. The cutter will accommodate a tile area of approx. 14″ wide x 24″ long. You can expect 25 cycles per minute (or 50 to 75 tiles per minute). The platen can accommodate (2) 12″ x 12″ dies at a time. Tile cutter is equipped with a belt drive system. This is necessary when cutting a thin column. Powered with a 1/2 HP motor and DC torque drive controller.
