Published: October 25th, 2012
Schober USA has recently installed a new rotary die-cutting machine in their Fairfield, OH facility to provide research and development services for North American customers. The new machine, which is complemented by two similar units at the Schober GmbH facility in Germany, makes it easier than ever before to assist customers with die-cutting, punching, creasing, embossing, and other rotary application research and development.
Additionally,the machine can be used on a contract basis for product or process development, running samples, or even small production runs converting various materials such as nonwovens, films, and paper.
The unit can handle web widths up to 16” (400 mm) wide and roll diameters of up to 24” (600 mm). The tension controlled servo-driven system is equipped with a web guide and nip stations both before and after the module station to create a controlled environment from which reliable data and quality samples can be extracted.
