Cutting Material and Placing Sheets
Custom-size sheets of any material can be expensive and recent supply chain issues make ordering new sheets harder with an unreliable delivery schedule and inventory shortages. Cutting your own sheets for custom sizes is cost-effective and creates inventory on demand. But cutting sheets of paper, film, plastic, labels, or other material for packaging can be a tedious and imprecise task. Safety is also a concern as cutting is usually done by hand and with a sharp blade. Automating the cutting process reduces the probability of an accident with the blade. The precision and accuracy of an automated system reduce material waste for a more lean production saving money and time.
The MFT Roll-to-Sheet Cutting System is a powerful automation system for cutting paper, film, plastic wrap, or labels for packaging production lines. This powerful system features a fast, accurate pneumatic guillotine cutter with a 320mm cutting area. The vacuum take-up maintains tension on the web for accurate cutting and the driven discharge belts keep the material stable for a precise slice. A catch tray can be added for easy removal of the finished product but removal can also be automated with a pneumatic air blast pad that delivers the finished cut product directly into the base product or conveyor. All MFT Systems are highly customizable as we work with you to create a system that best fits your application. Designed to roll up to applications and fit into tight areas, this compact cutting system easily integrates into existing production lines and complete automation systems.
