The main types of cutting machine can be divided into two categories: mechanical transmission and hydraulic transmission.
1.Mechanical cutting machine
The most commonly used mechanical cutting machines are mechanical cutting machines with open bodies, which are divided into two types based on the use of clutch-brake devices:
1) The use of rigid clutch-outer block brake device;
2) Using friction clutch-belt brake.
In addition, there are gantry-type mechanical cutting machines. In the production of some leather products (such as luggage and leather goods), paper cutting machines common to the printing industry are also used.
2.Hydraulic cutting machine
Hydraulic cutting machine is usually divided into two types according to the characteristics of structural layout:
1) Cantilever hydraulic cutting machine
2) Gantry hydraulic cutting machine
According to the working mechanism (pressure plate) of the gantry hydraulic cutting machine, it can be divided into saddle type, flat type and reciprocating type.
