Blanker Frame

The blanker frame will normally consist of at least two symbol patterns; one for the horizontal bars and a second for the vertical bars. By doing this the vertical bars can be offset from the first knife by a specified value. The distance from the cut extents to the frame is defined in the Blanker master tool settings.
