The ROTATEK sheeting unit is a modular unit that has an independent servomotor and is compatible with the whole range of ROTATEK printing and finishing machines. It cuts sheets of paper and folding boxes in sheets. Its speed can reach 250 m/min depending on the model and format. In addition it can cut sheets of fine paper, from 25gsm, or cardboard, up to 350gsm.
This unit crosscuts the roll, enabling the output of sheets by using a scissor-slitting knife box, which makes one or two cuts in each turn. To do this, this cylinder has two blocks of cutters located at 180º – the four edges of these cutting blocks can be used in turn as they become worn.
