How to Select the Right Extrusion Cutting Machine

Posted On: Tuesday, May 28, 2019

The Bonnot Company has been in the business of extrusion for over 125 years, so it’s safe to say we’ve been around the block when it comes to creating high-quality machines for a variety of industries and applications. But the extruders themselves aren’t the only things we specialize in — to ensure we can tackle any need, we’ve developed plenty of extrusion cutting machines to work right alongside them. Take a look at some of the extrusion cutting machines we offer and learn which ones might be best suited to your unique needs.

Types of Extrusion Cutting Machines

A Bonnot commercial extrusion cutting machine can help enable users to optimize their processing streams and create more consistent final products. While we’re always ready to help our customers create a custom cutting solution focused on their specific application, we do have a few specific categories of machines for material cutting.

  1. Rotary Die Cutters: when mounted and hinged to a Bonnot extruder, this rotating blade will slice materials being pushed through a die with neatness and precision to give you an ideal product.
  2. Offset Rotary Die Cutter: operates under the same principles at the rotary die cutter, but is better suited for cutting through tougher materials that require more torque to achieve an optimal cut.
  3. Guillotine Cutter: uses a downward guillotine motion to neatly cut through materials at a predetermined length for a high rate of consistency and maximum packaging appeal.

Applications for Extrusion Cutting Machines

Bonnot extruders and cutting equipment are up for just about any challenge, but there are certain industries where our cutters are most frequently used. Any form of pelletizing is where our machines truly shine, helping create consistent shapes and sizes of any material you’re extruding.

Food Extrusion

Whether you’re extruding cereal, pasta or dog food and treats, a Bonnot food extruder coupled with a rotary die or guillotine cutter will deliver a perfect product every time. Our cutters even work on dry and moist applications, so no matter your product, we can create the ideal system for your needs.

Catalyst Extrusion

The importance of consistency in catalysts cannot be overstated. A Bonnot extrusion cutting machine can be designed to cut pellets and hollow rings of all thicknesses, keeping a tight tolerance on the cut of the material. To ensure our machines work exactly as you need them to, we have a state-of-the-art testing facility where we can run trials on the rotary, offset rotary or custom cutting solution we’ve developed for you.

Coal/Carbon Extrusion

An extrusion cutting machine from Bonnot can even handle abrasive materials like coal and carbon products, earning us the moniker of “brickyard tough.” Our robust machinery is designed to process the toughest materials in most cost-effective way possible, which includes not just efficient cutting, but less downtime for maintenance and repairs as well.
