Web-Fed Platen Die Cutter

Zerand equipment is built to last. Heavy-duty construction enables our cutter lines to deliver reliable high-speed performance and low maintenance requirements for years. In fact, it’s not surprising to find Zerand die cutters still going strong after more than a quarter century.

What has distinguished us over the years is the precision and quality of our cutters. Our narrow and wide-web reciprocating platen die cutters and strippers continue to set the industry standard for speed, quality and productivity.

The Zerand Line Concept: Platen Cutters cut, crease and strip a continuous web of printed paperboard, to form individual blanks in register with the printed art and deliver them in either shingled streams or stacked batches.

Platen Die Cutter Line

Zerand builds on engineering expertise to create platen die cutter lines that are considered the best in the world. Designed for high-speed, high-volume non-stop operation, our custom-engineered die cutting lines will exceed your expectations for both precision and productivity.
