Spanish converting machinery manufacturer Tecnocut has launched a Pit Stop die-cutting unit featuring electronic variable adjustment E-Diffsystem to enable faster swapping of magnetic cylinders.
The new unit has been developed especially for label converters and printers looking for additional productivity boost and streamlining their production processes. This versatile product is compatible with the majority of modern printing presses.
According to Tecnocut, the new product enables the magnetic cylinder's change in less than 30 seconds compared with conventional die-cutting stations requiring more than 15-20 minutes for the same operation.
‘We knew other systems on the market that were able to change cutting tools quickly, but after studying them carefully, we noticed there were several parts of the process that could still be further optimized and improved. And this is what we have been doing for the past two years. Adding products such as the E-Diffsystem and pneumatic pressure control has allowed us to achieve extremely high-quality standards in cutting,’ commented Pol Estrada, international business manager at Tecnocut. ‘We aimed to develop a product combining in technology with great adaptability and maneuverability.’
Pit-Stop die-cutting unit was officially launched in October 2020. Tecnocut has already installed five units at an industrial level on top of one demo machine at its Barcelona facilities.
Tecnocut is gearing up for six more product launches this year.
‘Our goal continues to be the development of products that provide high-added value to the customer, which requires a large investment in R&D. This has been possible thanks to the financial grant from the Spanish government (CDTI) in a project focused purely on products and solutions that optimize manufacturing processes,’ concluded Estrada.
