Flexo Plate Cutter
The safer, faster and more accurate way to cut flexographic plates
With the Flexo Plate Cutter, you can accurately pre-cut flexo on the flat. By using the sightline strip you can precisely align to your target marks for the first and second cut – there is no need to cut flexo on the round. There is less chance of costly mistakes, which often result in production downtime and the need to re-schedule work. You will quickly create seamless splices every time and save both time and money.
The cutter is also intuitive to use and with a little training and practice, precise flexo cutting is achievable by all operators. The dual cutter head gives the option of creating a bevelled overlapping join, or alternatively a 5° undercut, so both plate edges meet perfectly when applied to the roller. The perfect join prevents ink traps or any deterioration of the adhesive. The Flexo Plate Cutter is specially designed to ensure your safety and increase production.
Perfect accuracy for tight joins:
The design gives a lifetime of straight, precision accurate, silent cutting. The cutting head features a set of built-in self-aligning ball bearing rollers operating on twin steel tracks. There is zero play on the cutting head sliding action and the base is constructed of a heavy-duty, one-piece aluminium extrusion for complete stability. The precision accuracy produces seamless splices and eliminates costly mistakes, whilst the 5-degree undercut creates a tight join when the flexo is attached to the cylinder.
Bevel & 5° undercut cutting head:
The spring-loaded bevel and 5° undercut blade holder features ball and thrust bearings for perfect alignment and superb blade control. The cutting head is mounted on two stainless steel tracks and hardened steel ball track rollers. All combined, they work together to give the ultimate in blade control.
Safety by design:
The Flexo Plate Cutter ensures your safety and removes the dangerous practice of cutting flexo by hand with a knife. Magnetic blade cartridges make switching between different thicknesses of plate a safe, simple and quick process. Everything has been designed to ensure your safety.
You can have various blade depths pre-set within different cartridges, so a precise and repeatable cut can be made by simply switching to a new cartridge. You can be confident of getting the right cut first time, every time and eliminating variability. The maximum blade depth for the bevel blade is 5mm (3/16"), the 5° undercut blade fitted with a trapezoidal blade is 10mm (3/8") and a rectangular blade is 8mm (5/16"). Simple colour coding makes it easy to identify and calibrate the pre-set depths.
Ergonomically designed cutting head:
The sculpted cutting head makes the Flexo Plate Cutter easy to use over long periods and is suitable for operation by left or right-handed users. A smooth sliding action provides precise cutting with no discernible friction.

“The Flexo Plate Cutter gives us unprecedented accuracy, we can trim off slices as thin as a human hair – we could never do that before. We would estimate that each Flexo Plate Cutter saves us Can$400 a month through reducing waste and errors.”
Andrew Miller of Pollard Banknote Limited (Canada & USA)
Lift & hold:
Raise or lower the cutter bar in one smooth and silent movement. Frees both hands for material handling and makes routine setting and working a pleasure. When used instead of the main handle, the already low lifting effort is reduced by two thirds for easy all day working.
Easy clip on and off arm to help cut material precisely square to a pre-determined size, whilst providing additional material support.
