732R Vertical Spin Trimmer

Click to view PDF

With the great success of our MTM 742R dual belt spin trimmer, there seemed to be a need for a “dumbed” down version.  We took the main concept of the dual belt 742R and downsized it to our brand new MTM 732R dual belt spin trimmer.  The new 732R uses only relay logic for it main controls with the dual belt speeds being controlled by lockable 10-turn speed pots.  To keep it simple and aid in troubleshooting, there is no PLC or HMI to deal with

The 732R has the same basic process as the 742R to control offset neck or containers that need to maintain line orientation.  It’s also ideal for slower production large neck finish containers as large are 8” in diameter.

Although it does have the same roots as our larger 742R, it does have certain limitations.  It cannot run as fast and is limited to just a few of our more standard pulley dome designs.

For more information on how the 732R may be a good choice for your new application, please give us a call to discuss your needs.
