How does the STAR hand cutting press MA3 work?
It works exactly like a bigger swing beam press. The cutting head is attached to a cylinder on the backside of the machine. The force isn't made by hydraulic systems. It is made manually through a 812mm long handle on the front of the machine. The head is inclined a few degress like a bigger swing beam press. This is balanced if the cutting head is under force.
Usable for many different products
This many is used worldwide for small quanitities for cutting leather, pictures or laboratory works. But it can also be soft materials like in the following list:
How to use the STAR hand cutting MA3
This machine weights about 45kg. It should be attached to a table 70-75 cm high to get the best leverage ratio and make possible the most ergomonic working. Since force always generate a counter force the table or subconstructe has to hold the machine and the force that you use while working with it. The machine has to be attached with e.g. screws to the subconstructure!
The different tool heights are balanced with different high cutting boards. On the cylinder is a handwheel to adjust the high addiotionally and more acurate!
On the backside of the machine is the main oil spot. If you use the machine on daily basis please oil it once a week.
