MASTERCUT 1.7 - Autoplaten® die-cutter

Machine design

Mirror version

In order to optimize the production area layout and maximize operator productivity, the full line is also available with operator controls on the right-hand side viewed in the direction of travel of the board. Two production lines can thus be arranged in a parallel configuration facing each other, thus increasing productivity per sqm of floor space.
