Cutting and creasing with maximum efficiency and quality with vector technology, processing of digitally printed packaging
The innovative drive technology for processing of digitally printed packaging combines continuous and vector rotary die cutting technology in re-registration mode to print, thus a wide range of formats can be processed with a single set of tool or magnetic cylinders. With a fully modular design, the RSMHD-DIGI-VARICUT is designed to convert webs up to a width of 770 mm to suit image sizes or printing formats of 740 x 1120 mm.
The combination of a standard configuration of the RSMHD-DIGI-VARICUT includes a vacuum conveyor with multiple vacuum chambers for a controlled product delivery, a high speed, programmable robot-automated stacking and counting system (“Spider”) with an extreme acceleration, velocity and precision at a continuous web speed of up to 50 m/min is available as an option.
This robot-automated delivery is designed in such a way that different products can be stacked with the same print image regardless of whether it is a combination of very long /large and small products with different dimensions, or a continuous, format-independent nesting of the printed images.
A strong advantage of this format-independent nesting is massive saving of media waste and massive increase in productivity based on imposition efficiency. The optional use of combined cutting and creasing plates helps to reduce tool costs. The proven cutting gap control system (GCS), to compensate for cutting wear, increases the tool life – another advantage of the RSM520HD-DIGI-VARICUT.
RSM-DIGI-VARICUT, Vector technology for digitally printed materials to manufacture IML labels & Folding Cartons
The RSM-DIGI-VARICUT is equipped with a new Generation of hybrid drive technology for the rotary converting of digitally printed packaging materials. A combination of continuous & vector drive technology – in re-registration mode – allows format independent converting by the use of a single tool circumference.
The RSM-DIGI-VARICUT is based on modular platform, available for different working width (max. working width currently 850 mm, max. format length 1,220 mm).
The standard configuration of the RSM-DIGI-VARICUT includes a vacuum controlled delivery table. A high speed programmable robot-automated stacking and counting system (Spider) which combines extreme acceleration, velocity and precision at continuous web speed of up to 50 m/min can be added.
The Spider is designed to pile up different types of products combined within the same printing image. They can be heavily nested or combined – i.e. very large/long with small products. Product specific, fast interchangeable pick-up plates take up products at synchronized speed and stack them into a dual piling cassette system – non-stop. A 100% product inspection system with defective product discharge is available in addition.
Meeting specific demands of the digital market
The RSM-DIGI-VARICUT is – due to its advanced design – ready to meet the specific demands of the digital market to cope new business challenges.
Short make-ready time, minimum waste & cost-effective cutting technology with maximum lifetime – due to a micrometric die wear compensation adjustment – are additional significant benefits of this converting technology.
