ILF Technologies (Booth 4041) is showcasing the ILF M3 rotary cutter, designed for short makereadies and maximum uptime. It features a new anvil pin cylinder that has a push-through pin system with positive bottom seating. This new design prevents the pins from sinking when the rotary cutter is in operation.
The M3 Rotary Cutter also includes soft-cut die rule blocks and soft-cut heavy blade blocks. The soft-cut knife system produces a quality cut at an economical price. Contour cutting is available as well. Existing ILF soft-cut blocks will work in the M3 model.
In addition, the M3 offers faster, more accurate knife positioning, reports the company. The knife locating bar results in shorter makereadies and keeps the knife in the proper position when locating the knife block to the cylinder. A new stripper finger system for stripping away the non-print gap employs a tool-less system to set a locating bar.The locating bar lines up stripping pins quickly and effortlessly,
