Unlike with flat-bed die-cutters processing sheets, webfed rotary die-cutting solutions allow very high production speeds and extremely fast set-up, offline, for the maximum OEE.
After a high-speed printing stage, the converting of printed materials – including embossing, creasing and cutting operations – usually proves to be slow. It is especially true with flat-bed die-cutters and, in a lesser extent, with sheetfed rotary die-cutters.
Webfed machines allow significantly higher speeds via inline rotary die-cutting (RDC) solutions.
RDC machines combine oustanding cutting precision (without nick points), durability and a production speed up to 3 times as high as flat-bed die-cutters.
When used inline, right after the printing stage, RDC solutions also prevent from any interruption of the production flow.
They therefore generate time and labour savings.
