This custom traveling knife consists of an unwind/rewind unit, a custom roll feeder and a knife assembly. The traveling knife is a circular rotary knife assembly that can cut a thin film and a thick, dense material. The rotary blade, made from tool steel, will be cut up against the solid hardened tool steel anvil. The knife assembly is capable of cutting in one direction. Upon customer actuation, it can return and cut in the opposite direction.
A shear cut blade gives the cleanest cut and is the recommended blade choice for most applications. The cutting force is not limited by pneumatic preload on the cutter
