Labels: Kiss Cut and Through Cut

Using the BSR Rotary Diecutter

The BSR Rotary Diecutter is masterful at labels.  The unique rotary cylinder design incorporates a “bearer-to-bearer” cut.  This means that the cylinder gap is fixed and needs no operator adjustment.  Furthermore the dies are ground to the proper height during their manufacturing process requiring no shimming, or test cutting to ensure their cutting ability, this is completely in contrast to a flatbed die which usually requires many test strikes and shims to get it to cut properly.  The die can incorporate both the edge and separation cuts for individual sheets and the kiss cut blades all in the same die creating a one pass process.  Multiple up layouts on the sheet are die-cut with clean, nick-free edges, then delivered in a shingled stream to the delivery table.  The scrap matrix is stripped away, along with any internal hole slugs for things like hanger holes or windows.  Speeds up to 8,000 sheets per hour are possible on the BSR Basic model and 12,000 sheets per hour on the full version.  Labor is reduced to a minimum because there are no additional steps to remove the scrap or to grind off nicks.  Machine uptime is at a high level due to the short makeready times for hanging rotary die plates and setting up the programmable stripping unit.  Because of the short makeready and high speed capability, the BSR can fit into the fast paced digital print world or be comfortable in the high volume offset world.
