Rotation Cutter

The rotation cutter is designed to cut a large variation of profiles and tubes produced by plastic or rubber compound.

The rotation cutter works with an electronic cam application. Based on the production speed, the selected cutting speed and the nominal length, an optimized motion profile of the cutting blade is continuously calculated so that the product can be cut vertically and cleanly between two product guide bushes with the max. performance. This cam application combines the advantages of start/stop operation with the continuously operation. This application ensures optimized length precision. All process-related parameters can be changed during operation on the control panel.

The rotation cutter can be used quickly and uncomplicated between different working positions.

It can be used both in a continuous extrusion process and in a discontinuously commissioning process.

The rotation cutter is equipped by different knives systems. Therefore, it will be able to cut perfectly small, thin-walled products as well as full rod products.

Beside the standard version, the combi cutter could be designed in a stainless-steel version or FDA conform.

Optionally, a dosing drop or spray lubrication is available, which reduce the product adherence to the blade. The cutting quality is considerably improved in this corresponding cutting application.

To integrate the rotation cutter into a higher-level line control, a wide variety of communication modules is available.
