Create bicycle chains on any length fully automatic

The Holland Mechanics / Marchetti Chain Cutter is an automated machine designed to precisely cut chains to the desired length. It offers a range of punching modes to effectively handle the links. Adjusting the chain length is a straightforward process using the control module, which will automatically halt the operation once the set length is achieved. Additionally, the Chain Cutter provides convenient access to a designated container for efficiently unloading groups of cut chains. Additionally there is a double loading option to load 2 spools of chain together by turning the cart attached to the chain cutter. For enhanced automation, there is also the option to install a fully automatic unloading system, allowing for seamless re-winding of the chain onto a roll. On average the Chain Cutter can roughly do 6 chains/min with a chain length of 110 links.

The operation of the Chain Cutting machine commences with the placement of the chain roll onto the machine. The roll is loaded into the machine, and parameters such as the quantity of chains, desired length, and the choice between single or double punching cycles can be easily configured via the control panel. The machine proceeds to punch and separate the chains, depositing them in organized groups within the container. This innovative tool not only simplifies a labor-intensive task but also significantly boosts productivity by eliminating the need for constant operator supervision during its operation. In essence, the Chain Cutter is a high-output solution that greatly enhances workflow efficiency.

  • Conveyor and chain drawing unit

  • Control panel with digital display for setting chain length and piece number

  • Automatically stops after set amount

  • Adjustable chain pin eject, offering simultaneous ejection of one pin, including of link components

  • Chain collector and unloading group into suitable container (tray, trolley, etc.)

  • Easy chain changing

  • Optional: fully automatic unloading system for re-winding the chain on a roll

  • Optional: Double spool loading cart for easy change-over for spools


Double loading cart

De-winding station

Capable of single / double punching

The chain cutter is capable to punch (cut) the chain in two different ways. The first way is to punch the chain on the end of the chain to detach the chains. The other option is to punch both links on the chain to detach the link.

Optional: Double Loading Cart

The Double loading cart is attached on the front of the Chain Cutter instead of the normal single spool holder. The cart can hold two spools and is easy to change-over by just turning the cart. This allows for a smoother work flow as the down time to change spools wont be an issues.

Optional: De-winding station

The De-winding option is a additional station which can be attached to the chain cutting machine. With this solution the punched chains are rolled back onto the coil, which then can be easily detached and used from the coil.
