Swing Beam Hydraulic Guillotine

The powerful range of Morgan Rushworth hydraulic swing beam guillotines are now available with the front guard finger safety system which offers the operator great visibility and increases safety. All machines are fitted with stainless steel quality cutting blades as standard, giving flexibility to cut a range of materials without detriment to blade life. The optional user friendly Cybtouch 6 NC controller ensures accurate cutting with precision back gauge setting and the facility to store complete cutting lists including length and quantity. For longer lengths an automatic swing away backgauge is standard.

Variable Rake Hydraulic Guillotine

The Morgan Rushworth HSVS range of variable rake CNC sheet metal guillotines are heavy duty, strong machines designed for a long working life. The CNC controller automatically calculates and adjusts the blade gap, the back gauge position, cutting angle and stroke length simultaneously once the data is entered. Therefore the strokes per minute cutting cycle is significantly increased. The cutting angle automatically adjusts according to material thickness minimising the twisting of sheet during the cutting cycle.
