Trim Cutters

Trim Cutter

If your converting line creates edge trim, the by-product is an opportunity to save time and money. Increase production up-time and allow your converting machinery to run at full speed with a BloApCo Trim Cutter as part of your comprehensive scrap handling system.

Trim Cutters enable continuous web manufacturers, slitters and converters to remove edge trim from production lines while maximizing up-time by eliminating edge trim blockages. They cut continuous material into small pieces that move with ease to a collection area such as a baler or compactor, and are ideal wherever one or more edge trims are conveyed through the same duct.
