Typically, the company said, those types of jobs are limited from anvil wear and inconsistent results, so producers of fabric and film products have to use a two-step process of heating and die-cutting.
In a plunge mode, a standard cutting die is mounted on a new cutting module from Herrmann Ultrasonics.
If a seal pattern is required in addition to the cutting, a fixed anvil can be mounted, the firm said.
The cutting module is a new standard component that can be retrofitted to most cut-and-seal applications, according to the machinery manufacturer in Bartlett, Ill.
