Fibre chopping machine tOOchop®M5-9 is normally used to make chopped strands from roving in order to dose these into a process, for example gypsum or concrete. In that application the chopped strands have to be dosed into the wet mixture, the machine warps the strands randomly out.
tOOchop®M5-9 is also used in pipe manufacturing to provide the axial reinforcement of filament wound pipes, by spraying chopped strands at the outside .
It is possible to have two fibre cutters in one house, to ensure a good homogeneous distribution of the 27mm or 54mm shopped strands upon the outer pipe surface. Or if a back-up machine is required.
It can be fed by 1 or 2 incoming strands to chop those into the desired length.
Several roof liner machines for automotive are performing with tOOchop®M5-9
