SmartGap cylinders

Adjustable anvil cylinder

The wide range of materials and ever thinner liners make special demands on all die-cutting components. Adjustable anvil systems permit a variable adaptation of the gap to the respective requirements. However, in some applications problems arise with conventional adjustable systems, in particular with cutting-through, larger working widths and high production speeds.

After long research and development work, we present the SmartGap which overcomes these limitations. You can adapt the gap to your needs flexibly and with great accuracy. The system is convincing with highly precise double-sided gap adjustment and its particularly stable construction which even makes cutting through possible without any problems.

Easy and flexible handling

The SmartGap is very simple and flexible to operate. The unit has two control knobs on its frame which adjust the gap individually for the drive and operator side in order to compensate one-sided wear, inaccuracies in the cutting tool, as well as fluctuation sin material thickness. The adjustment steps are less than a micron, so that even the smallest corrections can be made. Adjustment is possible both at a standstill and when the machine is running. The display of the adjustmentelements is calibrated so that a display of “zero” (0000) corresponds to a gap of 480 microns. If the knob is turned in the plus direction, the cutting depth is increased (the gap gets smaller). If the knob is turned in the minus direction, the cutting depth is decreased because the gap between the cylinders becomes greater.
