Hot Blade Cutting

During hot cutting, synthetic belts, webbing and ropes are neatly sealed along the edges during thermal separation.

Hot blade technology is suitable both for elastic and non-elastic textile materials, e.g. made from PA, PES, PP, Dyneema®, non-woven, films and other materials, as well as fabric blends. Compared with mechanical technologies, hot blade cutting is characterised by combining the separation and fusion stages. An electrically heated blade cuts through the thermoplastic material in a fraction of a second. The resulting cut edges start to fuse and can be ironed during a further stage. This produces perfect, stable and cleanly welded edges.
