4000-6 Multi Station Deflasher

Vertical Multi Station Deflash, PLC controlled, and quick changeovers.

MTM’s 4000 series Deflashers feature our own, unique method of trimming flash cleanly & efficiently. Our deflash tooling is custom machined from your digital files. This process allows us to produce the finest deflash tooling in the industry. The combination of our bottle-specific capture nests and our shear punch tooling enables our deflashing systems to cut containers precisely using less power and causing less vibration than competing systems.


Vertical Multi Station Deflash, PLC controlled, and quick changeovers.

The 4000 Series can be built with as many as nine stations, resulting in lines speeds well over 100 containers per minute.
