They are also eco-friendly and can cut down greenhouse gas emissions, thus contributing to environmental conservation.

If you are looking to venture into the paper tube business or paperboard production, Jota Machinery is ready and willing to support you.

As the leading supplier of professional slitter rewinder machines, we know that customers have different demands for paper tubes.

In light of these ever-changing demands, Jota offers three different types of kraft paper tube-making machines to suit your needs.

These include a kraft paper slitter rewinder, a tiny paper tube manufacturing machine, and a paper tube recutting machine.

This exhaustive FAQ guide breaks down everything you need to know about the JT-1500C High Precision Paper Tube Cutting Machine. Read on to learn more about this revolutionary paper tube cutter from Jota Machinery.

What is a Paper Tube?

Before we talk about the JT-1500C high precision paper tube cutting machine from Jota, it would be great if you know what a paper tube actually is.

A paper tube is a packaging tube made of paper or paperboard sheet layers that are rolled with a metal mold and glued together to form a strong, hollow, and usually cylindrical shape.

Both paper and paperboard can be sourced from pulp, plant fibers, or cellulose.

In most cases, paper is less than 12 points (or 0.12 inches) thick, while paperboard is more than 12 points thick.

The most common type of paper used in manufacturing paper tubes is kraft paper.

This type of paper is stronger than the stationary or white type of paper. In fact, the word “kraft” loosely translates to strength in German and Swedish languages.

Usually, paper tube manufacturers laminate and bind the paper layers using adhesives. You’ll want to know that paper tube production requires high tack and very quick setting properties.

For that reason, dextrin adhesives are mainly used in the tube winding industry.

These adhesives have low viscosity. That means they improve the running speed of your winding equipment and increase your overall production efficiency.

After the tube is formed, the binding glue or adhesive must be left to dry fully before the tube can be cut.

If the paper tube is to be used for packaging, then it would need additional steps like slotting, die-cutting, sealing, capping, and end forming.

These additional steps help produce a shipping tube, composite can or paper canister. A closure feature is added onto a paper tube to make tubular composite packaging materials like a paper can or mailing tube.

What is JT-1500C Paper Tube Cutting Machine?

Now that you know what a paper tube is, let’s move on and discuss the JT-1500C cutting machine. So, what’s it?

Put simply, this is a machine designed for cutting long paper tubes into shorter pieces to match the desired application.

It’s in your best interest to know that paper tubes go by several names, all of which mean the same thing.

In some quotas, paper tubes may also be known as paperboard tubes, cardboard tubes, cardboard tubes, paper cores, paper cans, composite cans, fiber tubes, fiber drums, paper tubing, or wound tubes.

In pretty much every application, shorter pieces of the paper tube are needed to meet the intended use. They can be used to roll different materials, including paper, film, label, and more.

There is no doubt that cutting the paper tube is a piece of cake. In fact, you can use a saw to cut it directly by hand.

But there is a catch—cutting the paper tube by hand may make the section look unsightly.

To mitigate this problem, you will need a good paper cutting machine that is fast, precise, and free of dust.

The JT-1500C paper cutting machine meets these requirements, and the price is reasonable.

Pioneers in the industry, Jota’s paper tube cutting machine has a simplified design for ease of operation.

In order to ensure the highest cutting precision, this paper tube cutter comes with CNC processed high precision tungsten carbide steel blades.

Tungsten carbide has been used in industrial cutting applications for almost a century.

Tungsten carbide leaves a better surface finish of the cutting edge.

Likewise, it leaves little or no dust on the cut surface, ensuring more accurate cuts due to minimal friction. In addition, tungsten carbide has better durability.

Alloying tungsten with carbon significantly improves its toughness.

In Moh’s hardness scale, tungsten carbide occupies a level of hardness of around 9. As a result, it has greater wear resistance than many other materials.

The JT-1500C paper cutting machine is designed for speed. Its mandrel rotates at a speed of 150-1000RPM, while its blade spins at 300mm/s. Set at optimum speed, each cut would only take 0.5s. That’s pretty quick!
