BSR 550 Basic Rotary Diecutter


The BSR 550 Basic is an all-in-one, nearline, rotary die cutting system designed for the B2 20×29 inch cut sheet die cutting market. This versatile machine is suited to many products including thin or thick sheets to be folded, scored, or embossed, pharma, packaging, label and digital printing, mailings, advertising supplements, booklet labels, folders, greeting cards, folding cartons labels and many other products in a one-up or multi-up production fashion.  Unlike flatbed diecutters, the process does not require nicks in the sheet to hold the products together as the sheet moves through the machine.  This allows the waste to be stripped out automatically producing a “nickless”, high quality product – which eliminates the need for further stripping or blanking labor.    The magnetic flexible dies can thru-cut, kiss cut, perforate, crease and emboss and are widely available from many die tooling manufacturers.

Standard Features:

  • Pile style sheet feeder, great for short or long runs
  • Advanced timing synchronization at register table ensures that sheets are precisely cut
  • “Nickless” product – holding points are not required, thus eliminating the need for further product refinement downstream
  • Die-cutting cylinder system with two magnetic cylinders for the easy mounting of flexible dies and counter plates
  • The magnetic cylinders run on bearers with a concentricity of 0.003 mm for no-shim makeready
  • Easy access magnetic die cylinders for quick job changeovers
  • Inline waste removal immediately separates the waste matrix from the good product after the sheet is cut
  • The die change is fast thanks to the pre installed cylinder register pins and matching die register holes
  • Dies can be dis-mounted and re-used many times in short run environments
  • Waste removal section with tool-less stripper shoes
  • Shingled stream delivery to handle nearly any product efficiently
