Custom cutting with state-of-the-art machinesJohn Moot
Cutting is the finishing process in which wide rolls, parent rolls or log rolls are cut into narrower strips. The Dr. Dietrich Mueller GmbH can cut various flexible materials such as fleece, paper, foils and laminates as well as pressure-sensitive adhesive tapes with various methods and machines to customer-specific widths.
The company’s state-of-the-art winding and cutting machines are equipped with state-of-the-art controls to ensure that we can both meet our own high quality standards and meet the specifications of our customers.
Parting cutting machines
Parting off is a bespoke solution that enables both the most efficient use of the material and the best solution for our customers.
Parting involves spinning a roll of tape (or other material) on a stationary mandrel at high speed while a circular blade slices the material to the specified width. This “cut to width” service is suitable for customers who need rolls of adhesive tape or other materials in a certain width.
Roll winding and cutting machines
Unwinding the material and passing it through a cutting section followed by rewinding the material makes it possible to cut material to a close tolerance and to vary the length of the finished material. We own and operate several different rewind cutting machines that use the grooving, scissors or razor cutting processes to process material. Score, Shear and Razor Blade blades have properties that make them suitable for certain types of material. The method chosen for processing the material (Score, Razor or Shear) depends entirely on the material to be cut.
Razor blade cut
Razor cutting uses individual razor blades that are positioned at stationary intervals across the machine. The material is pulled through the stationary blades, creating precise, clean cuts Razor cutting is best for foil and thinner materials of uniform thickness.
Squeeze knife cut
With crush knife cutting circular knives are used, which are pressed against a steel cylinder or mandrel. The material is then drawn through between the knives and the mandrel. Grooving is more suitable for materials with irregular thickness.
Two rotating knives that work like scissors are used for scissors cutting. The material is cut at the intersection of the two sharp edges and is ideal for paper, foil and materials with greater thickness.
