Rotary cutter RC for precise cutting to length of hoses & profiles

The RC rotary cutters from Maschinenbau Bardowick GmbH (formerly DCM Maschinenbau GmbH Lüneburg) are precise cutting machines for hoses and profiles made of rubber or plastic. They can process diameters of up to 100 mm and line speeds of up to 300 m/min. Thanks to the servo cutter design with blade holder mounted directly on the motor shaft, clean cutting quality and minimized length tolerances are achieved.

Maschinenbau Bardowick GmbH specializes in extrusion sequence machines and offers customized special solutions. Through innovative technologies and precise engineering, customized machine solutions can be implemented for customer requirements. The high precision of the machines is always in focus.

The RC rotary cutter at a glance

A crosscut system with the highest quality

The RC rotary cut-off machine meets your high quality requirements in many respects.

The cable cutting machine in combination with our caterpillar take-off BP, a picking unit or a rewinder you get a complete system from one source.

Overview of the features of the cutting machine

Due to the cam application developed in our company for the automatic cut-to-length machine, the motion profile of the cutting blade is continuously calculated and adjusted to the product speed. The optimum cutting speed for the product can be selected independently of the product speed.

The blade change is quick and safe.

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

Many individual extensions for our automatic cut to length machine

We adapt each rotary cutting system to your individual process engineering needs. Possible options include:
  • Wet-cutting design through metered drip or spray lubrication to avoid product buildup on the blade
  • Individual adaptation of the cutting bushes depending on the product profile
  • Use of a wide variety of blade systems, perfectly suited to the task at hand
  • Integration of the cut-to-length machine into an upstream line control system with all commercially available fieldbus systems
  • Numerous experiences are available for FDA-compliant design for the pharmaceutical and medical technology sectors.
  • Subsequent picking or conveying systems adapted to your needs
