Guillotine knives, also referred to as straight knives, are commonly used in shrink sleeve machinery. These machines dispense, cut, and apply shrink wrapping and tamper-evident seals, or ‘caps’, to a product. Shrink sleeve machines operate at very high speeds, requiring a knife that is precise, durable, and able to withstand friction and material wear. Manufacturers often use one stationary and one moving knife in the cutting process. We manufacture, label, and sell these stationary and moving knives in pairs, with exactly mated tolerances for each set, ensuring a clean, repeatable cut with minimal maintenance.
We can offer advice on the material selection and the design of the knife to fit your application. New OEMs can lean on AQS for design help and formulation of their guillotine knives. For an established OEM, we offer competitive pricing, 100% inspection department approval, and stocking programs.
