Designed For Bottle Orientation Needs

The model MTM 732 is the little brother to the popular high volume MTM 742 Vertical Spin Trimmer.  For applications that do not require the higher speed capacity of the 742, the economical MTM 732 is an ideal spin trimmer when container or bottle orientation is crucial after the spin trimming process.  The dual VFD controlled ½ HP motors can handle difficult and a wide variety of materials (for PET material use MTM 740 or MTM 740E). Depending on the neck size of the container, the 732 can handle up to 100 containers per minute. The “Right-Hand” and “Left-Hand” feed versions of these variable speed trimmers come with a patented digital control heated blade and are available with a 24” or 30” blade for a wide range of container neck sizes.  Standard features include: Adjustable Height Frame, Casters, Spring Release Belt Adjustment, and Pneumatic Driven Blade Guard.  Some of the common and popular options include:

  • Timing belt for use in food grade applications
  • Discharge Corner Guide Bar to direct scrap domes to rear of trimmer
  • Remote Control Box – Allows access to controls on either side of conveyor
  • Full Perimeter Guard with In/Out Doghouses
