GERMANY: Rotate knives

ZAHORANSKY HAS developed a new cutting station for the blister packaging industry. Z.PackRotaryCut borrows technology from the rotary die cutting industry which for many years has provided high-speed solutions for converting web and sheet materials into various cut shapes.

Examples include the fabrication of adhesive labels, synthetic washers and gaskets, and plastic lenses. The basic premise is to support the product with a precision counter plate and then rotate precision knives, formed into the shape of the desired packages, over the un-cut packages. The knives which are mounted around a cylinder drum rotate across the blister film cutting through both the blister and lid stock yet never make contact with the counter plate.
