Whether they are installed new or retrofit, with a new or existing gravure, flexographic or offset press, our platen die cutters and strippers meet the exacting specifications and time-sensitive needs of packaging converters.
Zerand Platen Cutters offer the most precise and efficient die cutting available in the converting industry. Leading edge features include:
- Precisely “Metering” the web into the cutting section. This is achieved by means of an ELS driven “Metering Roll” eliminating any need for gear changes
- Starting and stopping the web entering into the cutting section: this is achieved by means of a swinging roller called “Moving Curved Plate” or “MCP” and an ELS controlled variable speed ‘Lower Feed Roll”, reducing retention points and surface scuffing.
- Controlling and adjusting the “Print to Cut” register to a very accurate tolerance.
- Creasing and Cutting evenly throughout the die cutting area: this is achieved by means of the exceptionally rigid construction and flat cutting area
