Knives for brands and markets

When gummy bear bags get their characteristic teeth and toilet paper its perfect tear-off perforation - that’s when Winterhoff Picard knives are involved.

In recent decades, Winterhoff Picard has acquired a very special reputation as a knife specialist for consumer packaging and products.

Our main focus:


Tubular foils enclose and seal a very diverse range of products. Compact packaging units such as sixpacks for drinks are made from them. Foil knives seal sundae cups and singulate garbage bags, perforate sheets of film and other items, all to facilitate product removal for the consumer.

Poly-tube bags

Many products today are marketed in foil sachets. They enclose bulk goods perfectly, protect it hygienically, keep it vacuumed in shape and much more. Foil packaging is the first choice for gummy bears, coffee, liquorice, chocolate, chocolate bars or detergents.

Paper, hygiene

Paper is one of the most versatile materials. It can be the packaging, shipping carton or the product itself all at the same time, as in the case of modern hygiene products. This requires optimum performance from our knives.

Food processing

The processing and cutting of food products is subject to hygiene regulations. Moreover, each food product makes different demands on the knife. It is simply impossible to cut cheese, candy or ice with the same type of knife.

Biofilms are made from renewable raw materials and, once used, revert to their biological components. In between, they protect and present the goods or keep them fresh. They are cut with knives which are matched to the strength and composition of the films: so the eco-cut remains economical.
