Schobertechnologies offers RSM770-DIGIVARICUT

The development and production of the first Schober rotary die cutting and stacking machines for the production of in-mould labels goes back to 1990 and since then, more than 60 RSM machines have been installed in over 30 countries all around the world. It is now recognized as the most advanced and efficient machine for the production of IML on the market. The web fed VARICUT technology by Schobertechnologies, designed for image sizes of 410 x 820 was introduced to the market during Labelexpo 2015. Meanwhile, a big step has been made in the development and design towards the wide web converting technology. Consequently, the machine portfolio has been extended, after the RSM410-VARICUT and the RSM520-VARICUT, now with the RSM770-DIGI-VARICUT. All of them with a format variability range within 200 mm.

With the RSM770-DIGI-VARICUT, Schobertechnologies has developed a new generation of hybrid drive technology especially designed for digitally printed flexible packaging materials, which 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 or magnetic cylinder.

With a fully modular design, the RSM770-DIGI-VARICUT is designed to convert webs up to 770 mm width to suit image sizes of 740 x 1100 mm. The handling and stacking of difficult products became much easier, thanks to automation and robotisation: The standard configuration of the RSM770-DIGI-VARICUT includes a high speed, programmable robot-automated stacking and counting system (“Spider”) which combines extreme acceleration, velocity and precision at a continuous web speed of up to 50 m/min.

Specific options:

Stations for micro perforations as well as injection hole die cutting and waste extraction are also available options.

Nested configuration to maximise the use of materials:

The equipment is designed to stack 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. Universal fast interchangeable pick-up plates take up products at synchronized high speed and stack them non-stop into a dual piling cassette system.

Inspection systems:

A 100% product quality control system with defective product discharge is a further option. Due to its advanced design, the newly designed high performance RSM770-DIGI-VARICUT is able to meet the specific demands of the market and new business challenges. Short set-up times with minimum waste and cost-effective cutting technology with maximum lifetime due to micrometric die wear compensation adjustment are additional significant benefits of this converting technology.
