Maintain System Performance
Cutter and granulator performance is a key element in overall system performance. In order to keep your trim and matrix removal systems working efficiently, and to extend the life of your blades, the knives must be sharpened and the cutter/granulator parts must be serviced on a regular basis.
When you send your PAC cutter or granulator to us for maintenance, we perform a meticulous 8-step inspection. PAC technicians, backed by our engineering staff, have the expertise to diagnose wear issues. Only certified parts and coatings are used to return your equipment to its original cutting tolerance and performance specifications. You will be notified of any necessary parts replacement and additional costs before we proceed.
Please follow packing and shipping instructions below, and be sure to include your contact information (company name, address, phone number) with your cutter.
Knowing that your company’s time is money, Precision AirConvey has made cutter/granulator maintenance incredibly convenient.
- Remove and retain motor. (This step is not required, but it will save you money on shipping costs.)
- Place covers on the inlet and outlet of the cutting chamber as supplied with the cutter.
- Use original carton and plywood base for packaging. If original packaging is not available, bolt the 4 isolators to a plywood base or crate.
- Packaging must be securely attached to a pallet or crate for freight shipments. Bolts through the plywood are recommended.
- Be sure to include your contact information (company name, email address, physical address, phone number) with your cutter - a business card will suffice.
- Please note, we do not use an RMA system.
Model 78 cutters can be shipped via UPS or FedEx.
Model 811 cutters must be shipped via freight carrier due to weight restrictions.
