Caterpillar Take-Offs (Pullers)

Boston Matthews invented the Caterpillar Take-Off (Puller) - The No.1 Puller In The USA and The World !

Boston Matthews invented the Caterpillar Take-Off and with over 10,000 units in daily operation throughout the world the Boston Model 'C' or "Farris" Puller is classed as the Industry Standard and No.1 Puller in the USA and The World.

     

The importance of the Puller should never be under-estimated. The failure to pull accurately and consistently will have an adverse effect on the performance on the entire extrusion line resulting in out-of tolerance and poor quality production.

Proven Worldwide Reputation

Boston Matthews are the inventors of the Puller.

Over 10,000 machines are in daily use around the world making it the world’s most popular Puller and the Industry Standard for more than 50 years.    

Precision Accuracy Pulling

An AC Motor with Forced Ventilation  and encoder feedback driving through a precision helical gearbox; high torque vertical shaft; anti-backlash bearings and worm gearboxes ensures maximum transmission efficiency providing consistent, noise-free operation with an improved torque range.

Low Running Costs

Grooved Belt Support Rollers improve belt tracking and prolongs the life of the belts.

AC Vector Drive & high efficiency transmission reduces energy consumption by as much as 5% when compared to the DC alternatives.

The absence of motor brushes provides virtual maintenance free running, greatly reducing costs.

Easy Integration With Existing Equipment

The Model ‘E' can be configured to integrate with any existing extrusion line.

Puller Belts

Boston Matthews belts provide the perfect pulling surface, whatever the application.

A wide range gives precise surface compatibility with all demands including hardness, temperature, friction and oil and abrasion resistance.

Poly-Vee, flat or timing belt substrates choice, as well as profiled, slit, tangent contact and special belts customizing facility for tailor made solutions. Precise, dependable quality control throughout every production stage.

Operator Safety

 CE marked with fully enclosed interlocked safety guard fitted as standard. 24V operator controls comply with all current safety standards.
