Maschinenbau Bardowick GmbH

The Orbital Cutter OC

The Orbital Cutter has been developed to cut rotationally symmetric, rigid products made of rubber or plastic without chips or deformation. With this cutting concept, no radial forces act to the product, so that there are no deformations.

Maschinenbau Bardowick GmbH (formerly DCM Maschinenbau GmbH Lüneburg) has been a well-known and leading manufacturer in the field of extrusion sequence machines for several decades. We design and implement special customer-oriented solutions in particular.

The advantages of the Orbital Cutter OC

  • Optimized cutting length tolerances through specially developed cutting application
  • Chipless, vertical cut
  • Servo controller of the latest generation
  • Aluminium multilayer pipes can also be cut
  • High effectiveness with simple operation

The Orbital Cutter OC at a glance

A cut-to-length system with the highest quality

The orbital cutting machine OC machine meets your high quality requirements in many aspects.

In combination with our caterpillar haul-off BP or a commissioning unit, you receive a complete system from one partner.

Overview of the Features

For cutting, the complete cutting unit is synchronized to the production speed by means of a separate servo drive.

During cutting, the blades execute a circular movement from an adjustable outer diameter to an adjustable inner diameter.


The optimum cutting speed for the product can be selected independently of the product speed.

Blades can be changed quickly and safely.

The base frame is a robust, powder-coated welded construction manufactured in-house.

Many Individual Extensions

Since the process engineering conditions vary from customer to customer, we adapt each orbital cutting system to your individual requirements. Possible options are e.g:

  • Individual adaptation of the set of tools depending on the product diameter
  • Use of various blade systems, perfectly suited to the application
  • Integration of the cut-to-length machine into a higher-level line control with all common industrial bus systems
  • There is a wealth of experience in FDA-compliant design for the pharmaceutical and medical technology sector.
  • The following order picking or conveyor systems designed to meet your requirements
