CHALLENGE

Replace multiple manual feed reciprocating die-cutters with high labor content with a high-speed integrated rotary system to reduce labor content and speed-up the manufacturing process.

SOLUTION

Design a turnkey rotary system with unwinds, infeeds, multiple die-cutting and creasing stations and a delivery system suited for the products. Multiple dies were supplied to cover the entire product range of parts and shapes.

RESULTS

Previously it took 10 months to produce a years production. After installing the rotary cutting system the customers die cutting was completed in 1½ months with a 90% reduction in labor. Post die-cutting operations continued during the balance of the year.
