The solid basis for your die-cutting success
The gap between the magnetic cylinder and the anvil cylinder, also known as “clearance“ or “undercut“, is of particular importance during die-cutting. In combina-tion with the thickness and composition of the liner material, the gap dimension determines the opti-mum height of the flexible die.Changes in the gap size (e.g. due to wear or heating) have a negative effect on the cutting result. More-over, there are further challenges in die-cutting: tool tolerances, fluctuating liner gauges and ever thinner liners. With the adjustable SmartGap® system, you have the cutting process under control at all times. A high-precision eccentric mechanism quickly and precisely regulates the gap (and therefore the cutting depth).
Easy handling - maximum precision
Using two rotary knobs on the unit frame, you can individu-ally adjust the gap on both sides to compensate for one-sided wear, inaccuracies in the cutting tool and fluctuations in material thickness.If the knob is turned in the “GAP +“ direction, the gap size is reduced and thus the cutting becomes deeper. Turning the knob in the “GAP -“ direction reduces the cutting depth by increasing the distance between the cylinders. Adjustment is possible both at standstill and while the machine is running. The adjustment steps are only half a micron, so that even the smallest corrections can be made.
