Shear cut knife holder from DIENES

The PSG DF BOX knife holder is the premium version that embodies decades of experience in knife holder manufacturing. This knife holder takes the top position technologically. As bestseller in the premium segment, it is the counterpart to our elite knife holder DS 8, which pays for itself with its more elaborate equipment.

The PSG DF BOX knife holder offers the following additional functions

Use of the knife holder PSG DF BOX

This shear cut knife holder is used in both winders and cross cutters and wherever it is necessary to ensure the highest cutting edge quality even under rough operating conditions. A multitude of cutting technology developments have gone into this robust holder design. Features that drastically reduce set-up times and add great value to the ease of use of all knife holders is the linear guide.

The PSG DF BOX knife holder with a cutting width of 145/150 mm was specially developed for cutting single-ply and multi-ply paper. Due to its vibration-damping guide system and the backlash-free vertical and horizontal guidance of the cutter head, the PSG DF is ideally suited for even the most difficult cutting tasks.

Version with CSL-Technology

In this version the knife holder is characterized in particular by the patented vertical guidance of the cutting head, supplemented by a precise knife depth adjustment and the sensitive Constant Sideload Technology (CSL), which extends the knife service life. The integrated positioning aid also allows the knife holder to be manually positioned in the correct cutting position in seconds. All individual systems do not only contribute to low-dust but also reproducible cuts. Whereas the limit for longitudinal cutting speeds used to be approx. 2500 to 2700 m/min, DIENES has now succeeded for the first time in using a knife holder with corresponding cutting tools successfully up to 3500 m cutting speed.

When the pre-adjusted overlap depth is reached, a visual signal is given, indicating the optimum knife setting to the operating personnel.
