Heidelberg Introduces New Rotary Die-Cutter


The Speedmaster XL 106-DD rotary die-cutter unites two key production steps in a single machine, a unique combination in the market. The first unit places the injection hole in the label for the subsequent production process by means of a die on a magnetic cylinder with maximum precision.

Even the tiniest holes of five millimetres or more are possible. Up to now, this was a separate step that consequently extended the production time of the respective job.

The cut out material is safely and reliably removed by means of an extraction system. The second unit of the XL 106-DD subsequently cuts out the contour of the label from the sheet.

This combination of the two production steps in a single pass means a doubling of the die-cutting throughput, while makeready times and costs for die cutting tools can be reduced to half.

The XL 106-DD processes foils and paper with thicknesses of 0.05 to 0.3mm at a throughput of 6000 to 10,000 sheets per hour.

Apart from in-mould labels, the XL 106-DD can also cut plastic or paper packaging elements, such as POS items which, due to their design, need a ‘window’ or hole for mounting in the shelf or for attaching to the product.
