Allpax AX1400 top cutting disc is a replacement part for Allen MM3, M3 and SM4 rotary style gasket cutters. This unit delivers a cutting depth of 1.5 inches and is used with AX7000 vise mount and AX7001 bench mount rotary style gasket cutters. The brand's cutting disc is ideal for cutting non metallic gasket materials including hard fibre, cork, Teflon and rubber. Allpax AX1400 cutting disc features durable, heat treated steel construction for enhanced structural rigidity and excellent corrosion resistance. Raptor Supplies, a trusted distributor of Allpax AX1400 top cutting disc, also offers bottom cutting disc having a cutting depth of 1.6 inches for M3 gasket cutters.
Allpax AX1400 top cutting disc offers a wide combination of features. It is suitable for heavy-duty operations, such as fabrication of rubber, cork, Teflon and hard fibre in retort processing plants, breweries, power plants, oil refineries, pharmaceutical & food sterilisation equipment & autoclaves, and nutraceutical plants.
Allpax AX1400 top cutting disc is used in conjunction with rotary style gasket cutters having model numbers - AX7000 & AX7001. Allpax rotary style gasket cutters are crank operated machines which turn these top and bottom disc shaped blades clockwise to cut both metallic and non-metallic ring, flange & irregular shape gaskets with ease, hence providing trouble free operations and can easily mount through a vise or a bench on a piece of angle iron.
To cut the uneven shape gaskets, first mark the shape which is desired on the gasket material with a pen or pencil. Then, loosen the scale bar T-screw and remove the same. Further, manually feed the material through the cutters while operating the gasket cutter and turn the hand crank clockwise. Simultaneously, maintain constant downward pressure on the cutting disc lever with the other hand. As the cutting discs rotate, the gasket material will be drawn towards the cutting discs initiating the cutting process. Continue cranking until the entire outer dimension of the gasket material has been cut. Later, disengage the top cutting disc and discard the unwanted material.
While disengaging worn-out cutting disc lever, use a spanner wrench and place it into corresponding holes in the top cutting disc. The top cutting disc is loosened by holding the spanner wrench and turning the crank handle counter-clockwise. It can be necessary to give the crank handle a sharp blow with the palm of your hand to loosen the cutting disc. Place Allpax AX1400 sharpened cutting disc onto the top shaft and tighten it by holding with the spanner wrench and turning the crank handle clockwise.
A. Nitrile (Buna N) rubber gaskets provide superior oil resistance and can be employed for a variety of refined oils. Nitrile is the most commonly used material for sealing oil.
A. Both cork and rubber provide the best solution but will leak in a matter of time. It all depends on how well you place the gasket.
A. Portable, extension-style gasket cutters are lightweight and have a compact nature that makes them ideal for gasket fabrication & shaping in the field. These gasket cutters are usually preferred for cutting non-metallic or non-rigid gasket materials. Whereas rotary-style gasket cutters are heavy tools that are mounted in a vise, clamped in an upright position or bolted to a workbench. These units are ideal for a fixed location and are usually preferred for forging more metallic or rigid materials, as well as irregular, flange shaped gaskets.
A.Gaskets are usually manufactured from a flat material, such as metal, cork, felt, neoprene, paper, rubber; silicone, nitrile rubber, fibreglass and polytetrafluoroethylene.
A. There are, basically, three types of gaskets employed to make the mating part of the container leak proof:
A. As their name suggests, semi-metallic gaskets are constructed of both metal and non-metallic materials. The metallic gaskets provide strength and resiliency, whereas the non-metallic portion allows comfortable conforming and sealing.
