Allpax Launches New Motorized M3 Rotary-Style Gasket Cutter
Allpax Division, Guardair Corporation, the largest global manufacturer of gasket cutters, punches and related accessories, announces that its popular M3 Rotary-Style Gasket Cutter is now available in a motorized version. Made in the U.S.A., the Motorized M3 Rotary-Style Gasket Cutter incorporates all of the features of the traditional, manually-powered unit but without the need for hand-cranking.
The perfect tool for quickly and efficiently fabricating multiple runs of the same-sized gaskets, the Motorized M3 Rotary-Style Gasket Cutter was designed primarily for non-metallic gasket materials like cork, fiber, and rubber in thicknesses of up to one-quarter inch. The tool can be mounted to any workbench and can cut gaskets with a face width of 1/4" to 7”, and ranging in size from a 2-inch interior diameter to a 62-inch outside diameter.
The Motorized M3 Rotary-Style Gasket Cutter’s heavy-duty, cast iron frame (with a 7” throat) allows users to cut accurate flange and ring gaskets using durable, heat-treated tool steel, rotary cutting discs.
“The Motorized M3 Rotary-Style Gasket Cutter was developed with the end-user in mind. Motorizing the cutting action eliminates fatigue and possible repetitive stress injury for those end-users making large gaskets or several gaskets at a time”, said Mark Yorns, Director of Engineering at Guardair Corporation. “The Motorized M3 is a great addition to our Allpax line of gasket cutters.”
For more than 70 years, Allpax products have been use in a wide range of industries including petrochemical plants, shipbuilding yards, power plants, breweries, pulp and paper plants, refrigerated facilities, and oil refineries. Easy to operate and virtually maintenance-free, the Motorized M3 will cut perfect gaskets and provide trouble-free operation for years to come.
