Masterwork USA Reports Die-Cutter/Stripper

CHARLOTTE, NC | Masterwork USA, a manufacturer of folding carton and packaging equipment, is introducing the MK1450ERS automatic platen die-cutting machine with full stripping and blanking capability. 

This large-format machine features a large maximum sheet size of 1,450 x 1,080 mm, reportedly providing its users with more usable space, increasing production capability, reducing material wastage, and maximizing material utilization. The unit can be equipped with optional automatic logistics system to achieve automatic production of sheet feeding to sheet delivery without a feeder operator after production begins. Its maximum speed is 6,500 sph, and company says it is solidly built for maximum stability and optimized speed for high quality production.

“We’re listening to customer and market requests, as well as trends in the industry to allow more products on the sheet for faster production,” says Carol Jiang, VP of Masterwork USA. “When our engineers were designing the new MK1450ERS, they increased the sheet size…since the market is moving from the traditional B1 format. Our larger sheet size on the MK1450ERS provides our customers with a competitive advantage increasing their efficiency and productivity.”

Reported benefits include: an independent servo drive technology and an automatic tracking system that provide a stable production environment; an automatic continuous feeding system; speed regulation that enhances smooth operation of the feeder whether it is feeding thick board or thin paper; an improved feeder that can transport various thicknesses and types of material in a rapid and stable manner.

Additional designs have been added to the MK1450ERS for increased production. The intermittent mechanism with higher torque and the optimized drive curve are employed to create stable high-speed movement of main platen, which decreases the stretch of gripper chains and increases the longevity of gripper bar chains, company says. The side frames of the main platen are designed with an optimized method in order to endure the load of large-tonnage pressure, which is 600 tons. Optimized movable cams for stripping and blanking are said to ensure the ease of removing waste.
