Die cutting Advertising Specialties with Spartanics Die Cutting Systems or Laser Cutting Machines

A wide variety of ad specialty products can be die cut on a Spartanics Die Cutting System.

The die cutting system configuration for ad specialty die cutting is separated into two basic approaches: one for processing rolls of web material, and one for processing sheeted material.

For sheeted materials, the material can be fed into our die cutting system by our Automatic Sheet Feeder, by our Autocutter, or by our M73 Strip Starter. Our Automatic Sheet Feeder and our Autocutter handle an 18” (46 cm) high stack, and sheet sizes can be up to 29” x 30” (73 cm x 76 cm). The Automatic Sheet Feeder simply feeds the sheets without any cutting into the die cutting press. The Autocutter can be used to cut the sheets into strips or to perform edge trimming before feeding the material into the die cutting press.

When material either cut or uncut is fed into the die cutting system press, the material will be correctly positioned in the press by a registration feed that corrects for XY or XY & rotation errors in printing. The material is now positioned correctly in die, and the mechanical press will cycle and cut the desired parts. If the parts are cut using a steel rule die, or a compound male/female die they will remain inserted in the sheet. Various types of modules exist to remove these parts and discard the residual scrap sheets—parts extractors and pneumatic knockouts are commonly used. Using a standard male/female hard tool die results in the die cut parts being pushed through the die and onto a conveyor in a shingled fashion thus eliminating the need for part extraction.

A basic die cutting system for die cutting a variety of configurations of ad specialty parts from sheeted materials consists of the following modules:

1. M95 Autocutter or M96 Automatic Sheet Feeder or M73 Strip Starter
2. Mechanical Die Cutting Press
3. X, Y or X, Y & Rotation Axis Registration Feed
4. Steel Rule Dies or Standard Male/Female Hard Tools or Compound Male/Female Dies can be used
5. Part Removal Module if a Steel Rule Die or Compound Male/Female Die is used in the system
6. Parts Collection Conveyor

For roll web materials, the material can be feed into the die cutting system by our Automatic Unwinding Module which accurately controls the slack loop of material between the Unwinder and the Mechanical Die Cutting Press.

When web material is fed into the press, the material will be correctly positioned in the die cutting systems press by a registration feed that corrects for XY or XY & rotation errors in printing. The material is now positioned correctly in die, and the mechanical press will cycle and cut the desired parts. If the parts are cut using a steel rule die, or a compound male/female die they will remain inserted in the sheet. Various types of modules exist to remove these parts and discard the residual scrap web—parts extractors and pneumatic knockouts are commonly used. Using a standard male/female hard tool die results in the die cut parts being pushed through the die and onto a conveyor in a shingled fashion thus eliminating the need for part extraction.
