Mecapack introduces "Smart Cut"


This cutting system, developped by Mecaplastic, is used for transversal cuts on flexible films.
The principle of this system is to install several ascent and descent’s kinematics on the main cutting station.

This process allows to activate the various transverse cuts according to the defined formats, in a independent way.
The lower actuators allow to make activate the fim press. Cutters are activated by independents cylinders (1 cylinder per track) on the supérior plate.

The example below presents a system which can cut 6 or 12 rows of trays
