Schobertechnologies – Vector technology for the converting of digitally printed flexible packaging material
Schobertechnologies introduced the RSM-DIGI/Varicut, a new generation of hybrid drive technology designed for converting digitally printed flexible packaging materials into IML
BRUSSELS • At Labelexpo Europe 2015, Schobertechnologies introduced the RSM-DIGI/Varicut, a new generation of hybrid drive technology especially designed for converting digitally printed flexible packaging materials into IML. It combines continuous and vector rotary die cutting technology in re-registration mode, thus a wide range of formats can be processed with a single tool. In fully modular design, the RSM-DIGI/Varicut is designed to convert web width up to 770 mm (30.3”), and with repeat or format length of up to 1150 mm (45.2”). According to the company, the system attracted a great deal of interest among stand visitors.
The standard configuration of the RSM-DIGI/Varicut includes an M-Stack delivery system, available as option or for future upgrades are the S-Stack, an adjustable de-nesting station to handle several products across as well as a high speed programmable robot-automated stacking and counting system (“Spider”) which combines extreme acceleration, velocity and precision at continuous web speed of up to 50 m/min (164 fpm).
The equipment is designed to pile up different types of products combined within the same printing image. These can be heavily nested or can be a combination of very large/long and small products. Product specific fast interchangeable pick-up plates takes up products at synchronized high speed and stack them non-stop into a dual piling cassette system. During the show, Schobertechnologies demonstrated the RSM-DIGI/Varicut with robot-automated stacking device.
During Labelexpo Europe, they also highlighted rotary cutting and creasing tools for the production of packaging blanks, punching modules and rotary die cutting modules with quick lifting device.
