The all-new Daco DF250SRD is a compact modular semi-rotary diecutter. Converters can finish labels from smaller digital presses, add an inkjet system to print and finish in one pass or manufacture plain labels cost-effectively for desktop digital printers. The DF250 is a cost-effective solution for label finishing from smaller digital label presses. The machine is capable of running in semi-rotary mode of up to 65 m/m (213 fpm) or in full rotary mode 175 m/m (574 fpm). The machine has been exhibited with the new Daco DBS-ES easy set back scoring system for edge trim removal.
The Daco PLD rotary diecutter with a semi-automatic turret rewinder offers all the benefits of turret rewinding but with rapid make-ready times, unlike conventional turret rewinding, the company says. This allows shorter runs to be produced quickly and efficiently.
The PLD is an efficient rotary diecutter with a semi-automatic turret rewinder for small roll production. Daco says this process operates differently than traditional diecutters, where the machine is stopped for a considerable time while operators cut and re-apply the web to the cores. The semi-automatic turret is only stopped for a few seconds while the turret indexes. New cores are applied to the rewind shaft while the machine is in production; the turret automatically cuts the web and applies the web to the new cores. The machine has job storage to allow quick and easy repeatable setups.
The PLD range is available in 250mm (10”), 350mm (13.75”) and 430mm (17”) web widths and utilizes air shafts from ¾” to 3” (19-76mm).
The Daco DP350 inkjet label press consists of an I-Jet600 Label CMYK color unit, incorporating Kyocera printheads and a GEW UV dryer. The machine can be seen running on stand 9A24.
The DP350 in its basic form has 700mm (30”) unwind and rewinds with the option to add inline slitting, diecutting options (full and semi-rotary), Meech web cleaning and Vetaphone corona treatment.
