Sleeve Machine

Mid-Anglia Engineering has been a leader in battery manufacturing machinery for over 40 years, including Sleeve Forming Machines.

Our automatic battery sleeve forming machines are designed to rapidly produce BS size, DIN size, and other sizes of sleeves, with minimum operator intervention.

The basic principle of our machines:

Fabric is unwound by a powered let off unit.

A set of scoring rings are then used to score the fabric before forming into the sleeve.

As the fabric passes through the forming section glue is applied to the edge forming a sleeve profile.

The formed fabric passes through a servo cutter that cuts the sleeve to the required length on the move.

The finished products are dropped onto a short acceleration conveyor that moves them onto an accumulation conveyor.

Cutting rates are pf up to 60 sleeves per minute, dependent on length selected (30m of material per minute).
