Questec Rotary Folio-Size Sheeter
In 2018, BW Papersystems acquired the innovative Questec technology. This integration into BW Papersystems' robust sheeting product line is the perfect combination. The partnership created the most efficient and effective machines for the lightweight paper and specialized plastic-film industry.
With its Questec brand and revolutionary “AirStream” sheet transport system, BW Papersystems offers the RQS-V rotary sheeter, providing a powerful solution for the most difficult lightweight paper grades or plastic films. The sheeter efficiently handles cut-to-register or cut-to-watermark products, small batches, and quick order changes. Products like patient information leaflets, package inserts, wet glue labels, in-mould labels and scratch sensitive plastic films all flow through the machine with ease.
The sheet transport technology by means of airflow cuts thin film and paper quickly, with stepless variable lengths. The sheeter can transport and cut single-layer papers starting from 40 g/gsm and plastic film starting from 80 µm at a cut-off length of 400 mm - 1060 mm, optional 1500 mm or even 1800 mm are possible. This high-performance machine offers highly competitive technology.
For the inline-printing industry, as well as the specialized plastic-film industry, both the standalone and integrated Questec crosscutting and contact-free sheet transport solutions provide precise, versatile production options.
