Circular Blade Cutting Systems 


Our cutting modules are manufactured according to customer requirements and delivered in different versions. We generally differentiate between edge cutting modules and cutting modules. Edge cutting modules only have two cutting units in contrast to cutting modules that can have any number of knives.

It can be cut with squeeze knives, ultrasonic sonotrodes or hot-cut pistons.

We manufacture the modules so that they e.g. can be integrated into existing machines such as goods inspection machines or behind stenter frames. Edge removal is optional.
