DIENES Knife Holders
The DS 6 is the culmination of 100 years experience of the company DIENES and know-how from more than 500,000 produced knife holders. Whether it is with manual or semi-automatic operation: The DS 6 impresses with its extremely high stability with very small cutting width from 30 mm and speed of up to 2,000 m/min. Adding to this is the worldwide unique cutting pressure positioning, its high longevity, as well as its comprehensive compatibility.
As worldwide leading manufacturer for industrial slitting technology, once again we set a new standard with the innovative DS 6 in the field of knife holders. Thanks to the DIENES honeycomb structure and the long guide bodies, the compact and light design of the DS 6 is extremely sturdy. This means the user can expect highest accuracy even for small cutting widths, and additionally benefits from an increased durability. Furthermore, the DS 6 with its high variability is suited to many sophisticated fields of application, like the processing of paper, foil, non-woven material and non-ferrous metal foil. Our unique patented cutting pressure positioning prevents the stick-slip effect with the balanced pressure distribution on the knives.
The fact that our new knife holder is trend-setting on the market is also demonstrated by the other product features of the DS 6. For example, it has an integrated patented adjusting slide, which enables precise and reproducible positioning of the holder towards the bottom knife. The setting of the shear angles is possible in two ways: Conventionally with a plate on the retainer as well as from the front with the DIENES angle supports. The quick-change heads ensure a simplified, time-saving and above all safe removal during maintenance and knife exchange – the knife head and the integrated 360° guard can be completely removed and inserted as one unit. Furthermore, this unit can be used in both directions, so that the knife holder is suitable for all feed-ins or can be quickly repositioned. In addition, the knife holder has a forced sequence control for the cutting pressure positioning. Alternatively, however, supply via two separate compressed air circuits for individual adjustment of vertical and horizontal stroke can be selected, so that the cutting pressure can be set even more accurately and reproducibly.
Operation of the DS 6 is intuitive, comfortable and wholly flexible by being usable from all sides. Its design is vibration-absorbing and it has comprehensive rust and dust protection for maximum sturdiness. Furthermore it is compatible with almost all existing slitting systems and is thus ideally suited to easily update existing machines and make them future-proof.
The QR codes which are attached to each DS 6 holder were also developed with a view to the future. With these codes, the user can quickly access the online service page which provides information about spare parts, order numbers, documentation and knives that can be used in the DS 6 and gives direct access to the time- and cost-saving DIENES regrinding service.
