Omet expands Monotwin diecutting system

May 11, 2010

Previously configured on the digital X-Jet press, the proprietary diecutting system is now available on the X-Flex flexographic press.

Omet, of Lecco, Italy, has expanded the availability of its Monotwin diecutting system for labels and tags to its X-Flex flexographic series of presses. Introduced in 2009 at Labelexpo Europe, the Monotwin was used on the Omet X-Jet digital press.

The MonoTwin diecutting system operates by rotating at a constant speed during the cutting phase, while its servo controlled motor allows it to adjust its idling speed to the acceleration and deceleration of the press while staying synchronized for the next cut. The unit eliminates the need for a hoist to lift heavy cylinders, and completes a changeover in seconds by replacement of the cutting sheet. Operational control of the unit, web tension, and waste extraction are carried out via the main operator control board, while pre-register and register control is fully automatic.The Omet X-Flex won the FTA Techncial Innovation award in 2008 for its design and performance.
