Schober USA introduces their latest version of the popular RSM family of rotary die cutting machines which is ideal for processing a wide range of paper, film, foil and even technical non-woven materials. Innovative servo-drive technology and continuous synchronously driven rotary die tools allow the RSM to process at speeds of 150 m/min (492 ft/min) while maintaining precise register accuracy. With micrometric die wear compensation adjustment these systems allow an unparalleled service life. They are ideal for a wide range of papers, films and foils including OPP, PE, PS and PET foil, coated paper laminates, and composites as well as technical non-woven materials.
The RSM family is available with working widths of up to 850mm (33.5 in). Proven components incorporated into each unit include a heavy duty rotary die-cutting station, automated web guide, continuously monitored re-insertion, vacuum controlled product flow, static neutralizer and various delivery options (including robotic delivery). This innovative system unwinds label rolls, die-cuts labels, counts, stacks and delivers labels, re-winds waste matrix with tension control, and is suitable for labels of any size and complexity. Registration is constantly monitored (customers report + 0.004" contour and a 0.008 die cut to print accuracy) so that a print-to-cut accuracy of .015” is maintained at 95% of production.
Pneumatic roll lifting capacity is 440 to 1135 pounds. Die cutting module with high-precision bearing assembly and an innovative “on-the-fly” die to anvil adjustment is included – typical die circumference is 17” – 25”. A vacuum generator is included for the vacuum conveyor which transports die-cut labels prior to stacking.
This impressive list of features and benefits is just one reason that this technology has been so well received in the marketplace, including a recent order for a demanding application in North Africa.
