The tool is used to crop out edge slots in the aluminium extruded box section used for the vertical uprights of a curtain walling glazing system. The slots of 65mm width in 10mm thick ribs are to clear
the transoms during assembly of the glazing panel. The machine is powered by a Parsell Minni-Die A66 air-hydraulic intensifier to develop 5,280psi (360bar) using a normal shop airline of 80psi (5,6bar). The machine
operates in two seconds plus the loading time by the operator. A sensor prevents the machine from operating unless the material is inserted correctly.
