Die Cutting

Die cutting and laminating applications require handling large rolls and webs with both power and precision. Multiple materials with different weights and properties must be brought together at exactly the right speeds and pressures. Often, die cutting and laminating are integrated on the same machine, along with other processes that require coordination of continuous and intermittent motion. With requirements this complex, Kollmorgen motion solutions make all the difference.

The requirements are extreme, and extremely varied


Punches and dies wear and create friction. Lamination can bring together materials as similar as two sheets of paperboard or as different as the two sides of a sponge/scrubber. Cutting processes can range from a simple slit to a complex series of punches that adds dimension to the product. The final product can be as different as tissue paper and doormats.

Minimize waste, maximize productivity


Any tearing, excessive deflection, vibration or other problems can ruin the product and bring operations to a standstill. Avoiding these problems while running at the maximum speed that the materials will allow requires precise velocity control and coordination of motion across machine axes. If a fault does occur, the ability to stop processes quickly and safely, fix the problem, and restart without wasting time or materials can make a big difference to productivity and profitability.

Build a machine that makes a difference


To meet all these needs, Kollmorgen provides the largest selection of high-performance servo drives and motors, with the highest torque density in the smallest footprint. To handle the complex automation requirements of these machines, we offer the most advanced controls, programming tools and integration capabilities. Our unique co-engineering capabilities complete the package, bringing you exact-fit solutions and the expertise to help you build a machine that’s more precise, productive and adaptable.
