740e Vertical Spin Trimmer

Click to view PDF

The new MTM 740E spin trimmer was specifically designed for the PET stretch blow and spin trimmer process.  The 740E is engineered and built to the same high quality as our world proven MTM 740 vertical spin trimmer.  Our 740 30” can spin trim PET up to around 63mm necks, but with necks now at 83mm in the stretch blow and trim process, the 740E 40” was designed and added to our line of spin trimmers.  We’ve also taken this opportunity to upgrade all of the main drive components to stand up to the very demanding PET 24/7 operation of over 250 bpm at 83mm necks.



Heated blade technology

40” Extended blade length for up to 83mm PET

Gives the PET container a clean neck finish. Extends life of the blade. Virtually any resin will trim in the 740E. Lower capital expenditure as one machine will work on many product lines.
New redesigned blade holder Allows the blade to nest at the correct angle without a lengthy setup period. Reduced blade changeover time.
Micrometer blade adjustment Faster and higher accuracy for better bottle finish.
Digital heater control Precise temperature control providing a clean neck finish and longer blade life.
Belt guide wear strip. Increases belt life and higher productivity.
Exclusive automatic blade guard Safer and allows quicker clearing of bottles.
Heavy duty 1/2 hp drive Increased torque and production speed for PET.
Trimmer VFD torque sensing Detects bottle mistrims for auto shutdown and auto opening of the trimmer before any damage can occur. Less downtime.
PLC controls with panel mounted user interface Reduces setup time and functions as a fault message panel.
Spring loaded quick change belt tensioning Reduces chance for operator error during procedure. Longer trimmer belt life and increased productivity.
Infeed and discharge backup photo eyes Pauses the trimmer in the event of backup downstream of the trimmer or upstream of the trimmer.
Audible alarm and beacon lights for detection
Faster response time from plant staff.
