Verpackungen commissioned the world’s first Visioncut 106 LER with in-line separator. “With three months’ production experience of the Visioncut we are very happy with the results. It underlines how right we were to make this investment,” says Ostermöller. “In the fields of foodstuffs and technical products in particular, packaging is increasingly being erected and glued by machine. Given this background, we were absolutely determined to install a flat bed diecutter with in-line separation to replace our existing system. This now enables us to meet our customers’ quality demands without any compromise.”
The diecutter was installed at the end of August and was up and running just a few days later. The optical, non-contact sheet register, the fully automatic smart feeder and the double-cam gripper drive are among the other technical highlights of this innovative flat-bed die-cutter. Together, they guarantee reliable production during the processing of a wide range of packaging materials at sheet formats of up to 1’060 x 760 mm – including the lightweight paper material with a grammage of 80 g/m2 or more, carton board up to 2’000 g/m2, as well as plastics and corrugated board up to a thickness of 4 mm – while ensuring outstanding quality and productivity.
“With the Visioncut 106 LER, we can achieve full production speed faster than with our previous diecutter and accelerate it to its peak throughput of approximately 8’000 sheets per hour,” says Ostermöller, illustrating one aspect of the new machine’s enhanced productivity that offers his company an extremely attractive price/performance ratio.
