Compare horizontal versus vertical packaging knives
Horizontal – tooth knife and anvil knife (2 parts). The tooth knife goes against the anvil knife.
The tooth knife wears out faster than the anvil one.
Vertical – straight knife (no anvil)
- Mounting options
In horizontal – straight knife that usually mounts on the drum by two holes on the edges.
In vertical – has additional holding / mounting triangle on the top
- Tooth sharpness
Vertical packaging knives have sharper teeth than horizontal ones, as they need to punch through the vertical film.
As horizontal packaging tooth knife goes against the hard anvil and experiences a double clash, it does not need to provide extra sharpness.
