Mitchell Knife Trimmers
Mitchell offers six standard knife trimmer machines, sometimes called "deflashers," to trim flash from round or circular molded parts. Parts are precisely positioned on a rotating spindle and are held by a vacuum while straight carbide blades do the high accuracy cutting. Mitchell knife trimmers will hold ±0.002" repeatability while the popular Models 214 and 215 will hold ±0.0005". Cycle rates of 250 to 900 parts per hour are typical depending upon product and ease of loading/unloading. Typical parts include dust caps, diaphragms, lip seals, golf grips and piston, transmission or shaft radial seals, among others. The first Mitchell trimmer ever built in 1983 is still in production.

Mitchell Lathe Cutters
Sometimes referred to as "jar ring cutters," "mandrel cutters" or "square ring cutters," Mitchell lathe cutters are capable of cutting parts with square or beveled side walls such as gaskets, belts, washers, rings, seals, tubes, grips, sleeves, bushings, plugs, rollers and spacers to precise lengths. These machines are not typically used for rubber bands, hose washers or other low value parts. Mitchell lathe cutters will generally produce up to 240 parts per minute depending upon size, complexity and the material used. Lathe cutters are rated to hold ±0.003" and must surpass a trial of ±0.001" on 0.05" travel over the length of the machine. For more information about Mitchell Lathe Cutters, contact Mitchell today.
