KNOT-A

KNOT-A is a fully automatic machine. Thanks to its flexibility, it is ideal for start-up production needs of twisted knot segment and/or frequent model changes. This machine is capable to run all sizes of twisted knot segment, typically found in the market. The machine automatically loads the discs in two ways:

  • blank discs that need to be punched
  • pre-punched discs.

KNOT-A inserts the wires to be knotted from multi-wire spools or single-wire spools. After the knotting cycle is complete, the machine automatically ejects the knotted segment outside of the machine into a container. The machine is CNC controlled and can be programmed to produce a wide variety of knotted segment. The machine includes in the software the control of the knot with rose end, straight or trim.
