Web-fed Platen Die Cutter Line - 1400 (55 in)

Product Description

Zerand web-fed platen die cutter lines are the most efficient way to to produce a folding carton. The platen die cutters offers highest productivity and a reduced board usage with nesting layouts and no gripper margins. They also reduce operation steps and operators needed by more than 50%, as well as WIP and floorspace requirement. With web-fed platen die cutting, you can save by buying reels not sheets and eliminate sheeting or pile turning.

Main benefits at a glance:

  • Highest productivity (equal to output of 2.5 sheet fed platen cutters)
  • Reduced board usage by up to 18% (eliminated gripper margin, use nesting layouts)
  • Reduced operations and number of operators by more than 50%
  • Reduced WIP and floorspace requirement
  • Savings by buying reels not sheets and eliminating sheeting or pile turning

Our web-fed platen die cutting lines operate at up to 1000 ft/min. (305 m/min.) with 450 ipm depending on model. These systems perform with unyielding precision. Motorized adjustments make them operator-friendly.

With web-fed die cutting, it's a Roll to Blank to Stack process. This reduces plant storage and logistics, as there are less independent operations and movement of full pallets around the plant.

Web-fed operation means substantially less waste compared to sheet fed because with web-fed there is no need for a 6-10 mm gripper margin on every sheet. In addition, the flexibility for nested layouts is far greater with web-fed over sheet fed, greatly reducing stripping waste.
