Gillard’s Servo-Torq Ultra rotary cutter is a high-performance rotary cutter said to hold accuracies of +/- 0.1 mm even at very high line speeds. The cutter has AC brushless servo motors with a digital control system.

A key feature is that both caterpillar infeed belts have their own AC servo drive. These are synchronized to within one encoder pulse per motor revolution. This represents an accuracy of better than 0.0005% for holding speed, says the company.

Also, the caterpillar has been moved much closer to the knife blade, which is particularly important for small diameter tubing.
