Packaging Case Cutter
Special Purpose Machinery
As part of an existing installation within a packaging process, there was a problem with the cutters slicing the trays into their individual packaging sizes. Because the trays were struggling with traction on the existing systems they were stalling during the cutting process, resulting in uneven cuts.
We designed a solution to the problem which composed of multiple timing belts with a high traction surface being installed under the cutters. This allowed the trays to be fully driven through the cutting system in one continuous motion, meaning that the blade had to cut straight and did not wander – thus avoiding contamination.
