The alignment system has a camera under the pockets. It is easy for the operator to align the head with the core pointing down based on the camera image. The camera recognizes the position of the core, checks whether it is within the set tolerance and confirms this visually.
As an option, the head can be cut into 2, 4 or 8 pieces after decoring.
