Machine knives for the plastics industry

Industry solutions

The plastics industry is an extremely broad-based sector with a wide variety of products. This places an enormous range of demands on machine knives. It is obvious that the cutting edge geometries have to be adapted to whether it is a matter of soft plastics, such as for films or tubular foils, or solid plastics, such as for window frames, circuit boards for electronics or other high-performance components.

Even the aggregate state can differ when cutting. For some applications, hot and thus liquefied plastics are also cut. To prevent the material from sticking, we adapt the coating of our machine knives for the plastics industry. Thanks to this experience, we are able to develop solutions for every requirement. Please do not hesitate to contact us!

Cutting under water

We mastered a particularly big challenge for one customer. The requirement: The machine knife was to cut hot plastic under water directly in a production plant that processes crude oil into plastic. Thanks to the combination of two materials and a lot of engineering spirit, we were able to create the right solution for this special application for our customer. As a result, he benefits from a seamless and particularly efficient process that would not have been feasible without machine knives from Winterhoff Picard.

Knives for vertical form, fill and seal machines
(VFF) Non-Food
Bulk goods such as toy sets, screws, DIY items and even sand or soil are packed in vertical tubular bags to form marketable units. Our knives cycle in the automated production process and separate each bag perfectly.
Knives for horizontal form, fill and seal machines (HFF) Non-Food
Dishwasher tabs, wet wipes, diapers and clothing are packaged individually or in market-appropriate units. The primary packaging is cut with maximum reliability in a fully automatic cycle.
Knife for non-food stand-up pouches
Stand-up or stand-up pouches require efficient cuts. Detergents and cleaning agents or soaps, liquid or granulated, are accurately cut inline immediately after filling and in a single operation with the sealing.
