BERHALTER Die-Cutting - Make Yourself a Winner

Die-cutting is a piece in the complete supply chain of a final product. But nor the less it decides significantly about success. What die-cutting solution you choose decides about appearance of the product, sustainability, quality as well as efficiency.

Over the last few years, BERHALTER has reacted continuously and highly flexible to increase market demands and has introduced a number of innovations to the market. Alongside its capacity for constant innovation, BERHALTER is synonymous with the production of efficient and customer-oriented die-cutting systems. We specialise in the manufacturing of user-friendly but high productive die-cutting machines.

At the start of countless packaging processes

BERHALTER die-cutting systems are the most high-performance solution for efficient and accurate punching of foils and films from rolls. Across the world, BERHALTER die-cutting machines are at the start of numerous packaging solutions, fulfilling all customer requirements.

This applies for flat packaging lids out of aluminium or polyester, such as Nestlé yoghurt lids, as well as for packaging lids with relief impressions, like Philadelphia lids for cheese spread. Deep-drawn aluminium lids as those used for pet food like Sheba or Cesar enhances the extensive range of product opportunities. But BERHALTER die-cutting machines can also be used to produce paper labels, e.g. on beer bottles and labels for IML applications, such as those on Starbucks coffee cups.
We have the unique possibility to supply die-cutting machines and tools according to the specific market demand.



A BERHALTER roll-to-roll flatbed die-cutting system has proven to meet all requirements in an economic way. This highly accurate and efficient system for die-cutting foil and film fits perfectly into the most economic reel-to-reel production systems.

The processes before finally cutting the lid and label contour are certainly additionally influencing the overall costs of the lids and labels. Certainly the most material saving arrangement possible should be chosen. But the printing arrangement depends to the nesting possibilities of the die-cutting system. Basically only on a roll-fed flatbed die-cutting machine like on BERHALTER die-cutting systems the most optimised material savings can be achieved.

Efficiency means not only speed it is defined by the output. Output can be also increased by less working steps as well as process supervision can avoid scrap.

Die-cutting innovations

BERHALTER's inspection systems, represent a milestone in die-cutting technology, making it possible to inspect the print and material quality directly "inline" on a BERHALTER die-cutting machine. Defective material thereby is passed through the tool area without being punched - delivering 100% controlled products.

The level of automatism reduces additionally down-times, like our world's first automatic in-register reel changer REELsplicerTM, which improves capacity through increased machine utilisation and reduced downtimes. The fully automatic handling system BEAMstackTM makes it possible to separate accurately counted lid and label stacks and place them fully automatically into a pre-defined position.

All innovations can be added with equal ease to BERHALTER standard machines to create individual die-cutting solutions. As the world's only manufacturer of flat-bed die-cutting systems with our own tool-making department, we are a reliable partner to our customers for the complete die-cutting process.

The range of applications for BERHALTER die-cutting systems knows no bounds - BERHALTER systems allows both intricate lid and label geometries as well as a wide range of different materials to be optimally processed and die-cut to perfection.

BERHALTER will continue to improve efficiency and to focus consistently on the success markets of our customers.
