Cutoff for labels

With the Cutoff for labels from the company WOMAKO the printed paper rolls are transported, individual sheets are cut, piled up, transported, temporarily stored, transported again, shaked, cut to individual strips, and finally a die cutter stamps out the individual labels.



The draw roll drive draws the paper from up to 6 rolls into the machine. Circular knives cut the paper to individual paper webs. The cross cutter from the company E.C.H. Will cuts the sheets into ready to sale formats.
