Rosenthal Sheeters

What is a Sheeter? 

An Introduction to Sheeting

Sheeting is the industrial process of cutting paper or other similar materials into specific lengths and widths. Sheeter machines take large rolls and create smaller sheets of material for a variety of needs. Some sheeters deliver length and width cuts separately, while others do both simultaneously. Sheeters are able to feed rolls of material or run in-line to convert the output of an extruder, calender, laminator, or other web equipment.

The resulting sheets are sometimes the end product, however, the sheets are typically used in a sheet-fed manufacturing process or packaging process, such as thermoforming, die-cutting, or laminating. The most common sheeting applications include laminated glass, auto interiors, medical devices, digital printing, and composite products.

In addition to cutting to length, Rosenthal’s sheeters can be equipped with add-ons such as Slitters to cut to width at the same time, Stackers for efficiently organizing the sheets post-cut, and Winders for winding up long sheets with automatic stacking.
