Rotoflex Redesigns Die-Cutting Platform


ST. LOUIS, MO | Rotoflex has redesigned its DSI die-cutting platform to be a smaller footprint machine, which is said to be faster and more responsive to today’s changing production requirements. 

A contributor to the redesign is the incorporation of servo drives into the platform. Smaller than the legacy AC vector motors, this reengineering has decreased the size of the power cabinet significantly, thereby reducing the footprint. The independently driven servo drives manage the unwind, die-cut, matrix, and rewinds, and are controlled by the proprietary Rotoflex URC 2.0 control system, reportedly ensuring precise tension control and enhanced accuracy in die-cutting and slitting.

Company says the updated platform can now perform accurate slitting and die-cutting at speeds to 1,000 fpm (305 mpm), a 30% increase over production speeds of legacy DSI models.

The updated design accommodates a variety of inspection systems, and the die-cutting unit can be disengaged for specific jobs, meaning it may be run as a slitter/rewinder or as a die-cutter, accommodating more applications and job types.
