Basics of Rotary Die-Cutting

In today’s label production, die cutting in most cases is performed in a rotary process. Compared to flat-bed cutting, rotary cutting needs less pre-tension. The material web can be processed continuously and at high speeds. Flexible dies which are put on magnetic cylinders have been established as a standard tool. However, many factors need to be considered to create flawless die-cutting results. This article explains important basics of rotary die-cutting, which can help to prevent cutting problems.

 

Die-Cutting As The Interaction of Three Components

Label printers and converters need to produce quickly and trouble-free, in order to fulfill their customers’ high demands. Along with the printing quality, the die-cutting result is crucial for success. Very demanding customer needs, continuous developments in the material sector and time constraints – all of these factors make die-cutting a real challenge.

 

A high-quality die-cutting result principally depends on three components which must be optimally coordinated. These components are the material to be cut, the cutting unit (in rotary cutting in particular the cylinder gap), and the cutting tool. The following notes will introduce all three components in greater detail and explain their importance in successful die-cutting.

 

Rotary Die-Cutting of Labels – Label Material

First, let us take a look at the material to be cut. An infinite variety of self-adhesive labels are used in all walks of life and workplaces: food & drink, home and personal care products, medicine, pharmaceuticals, retail, office materials, logistics, automotive industry and industrial chemicals – to name just a few. The great variety of applications is a result of the multi-layered structure of the materials.

 

In the die-cutting process the face material is compressed by the tool’s cutting edge until it bursts. The silicone layer and the backing material should remain undamaged. This kind of cutting is referred to as “kiss-cutting”, and is the main application for self-adhesive label stock. It is also possible to completely cut through the whole material including the liner, for example in the production of perforations (also called “metal-to-metal” cutting).

 

Material Influences on The Cutting Process

The properties of the material have a considerable influence on the optimum design of the cutting tool: In rotary cutting, the thickness and properties of the liner material along with the gap determine the height of the cutting lines. Sometimes multi-layered materials are also used which require various heights in one tool. The cutting edge geometry (cutting angle, bevel etc.) is adjusted depending on the hardness and compressibility of the material.

 

Some materials (e.g. thermal papers) are very abrasive and lead to rapid wear of the cutting tool, which in such cases should be provided with a special coating or are laser hardened.

 

Optimal Cutting Results with Regard to Labels

In the cutting process the question is not only to detach the face material cleanly; detaching the adhesive layer is equally important so as to achieve optimum matrix stripping. The silicone layer and the liner material must remain undamaged, however. Cutting into the liner is classed as quality defects which can lead to problems in further processing of the labels (e.g. in dispensing machines). Moreover, no adhesive should leak from the sides of the labels. If the layers in the label roll stick to each other, considerable malfunctions can arise in the dispensing of the labels.

 

Apart from visual checking for obvious defects with regard to the dimensions and quality of the outer contours, what is known as an “ink test” is often used in practice to discover any damage to the silicone layer and the liner material. After stripping the matrix and detaching the labels, ink is applied to the liner and evenly rubbed in with a cloth. If the cutting has gone too deep, clear outlines will now appear. The ink test is not suitable for filmic layers, as they are not able to absorb ink. For these materials (like PET), penetration may only be discovered by light reflections from the liner.

 

Die-Cutting Unit and Gap

In rotary cutting, the material to be cut is passed through the cutting tool and the anvil cylinder in the die-cutting unit. The cylinders and the material web run at the same speed. For a high-quality cutting result, components of the cutting unit must be in perfect condition. The gap is of particular importance in rotary label cutting. To adjust the height of a flexible die perfectly to the material to be cut, the gap must be stated exactly. In Europe a standard gap of 0.480 mm (480 μm) is usual, while in North America 483 μm is common. Wear on the bearer rings and changes in the cylinders can cause the gap to vary considerably in the course of time, so that a satisfactory cutting result may no longer be achievable.

 

Deviations of ± 2 μm from the standard normally have no negative effects on the cutting result. If the gap is considerably smaller, however, the insufficient distance between the cylinders causes over-heavy cutting. Causes may be worn bearer rings or a fatigued anvil cylinder. If the gap on the other hand is considerably greater than the standard, the gap between the cylinders becomes too great and the cutting result is therefore too light. To compensate for this, a very high cutting pressure must be set; however, this puts a strain on bearer rings and bearings. If the gap varies over the width of the cylinder, the cylinders may be running out of true. There are also often combinations such as an insufficient gap on the drive side at the same time as an excessive gap on the operating side.

 

The gap and all components of the cutting unit should be checked regularly and measured to guarantee trouble-free die-cutting. Some tool manufacturers offer free gap measurements and also provide professional equipment for this task.

 

Pretension and Cutting Pressure

Along with the cylinder gap, the amount of the initial pressure (“pretension” or “preload”) in the cutting machine is critical for successful and precise cutting. The pretension needs to be greater than the resulting resistance of the material, which is mainly caused by the transversal lines. Another important factor in the cutting process is heat generation. This is caused by friction between the magnetic cylinder and the anvil cylinder during machine operation. The pressure in the cutting machine increases continuously due to this heat generation. This can lead to the cutting edges penetrating too deeply into the material and damaging the liner and wear is increased on all components involved.

 

For efficient die-cut processing, the use of a pressure control system can be very helpful. Such systems facilitate the adjustment and control of the cutting pressure. The cutting pressure can be evenly adjusted on both sides of the cylinder by means of pressure cells. If the cylinder generates too much pressure due to thermal expansion, this can be read immediately on the cell’s display.

 

Magnetic and Anvil Cylinders

The cylinders in the cutting unit are the basis for perfect die-cutting results. Magnetic and anvil cylinders must be manufactured to the highest accuracy. The manufacturing tolerances and concentricity should be only a few microns, otherwise even the most precise flexible die will not function properly. In addition, a sufficient width-circumference-ratio of the cylinder needs to be observed.

 

If rotary cylinders are sized incorrectly, there is a danger of bending. This applies especially to systems with no bridge and non-supported anvil cylinders. Dynamic forces in the cutting of transversal lines can deform cylinders. As a consequence, the cutting in the middle of the web becomes too light. A rule of thumb for magnetic and anvil cylinders is: The circumference should be at least as great as the maximum working width of the cylinder.

 

However, the cylinders must not only be very accurate and stable, but should at all times be in a perfectly clean condition. When cleaning magnetic cylinders the use of the right cleaning materials should be strictly adhered to. Some chemicals can attack the adhesive of the magnets, so that the cylinder starts to “bleed”, i.e. adhesive is exuded from the magnets, thus having a negative influence on the cutting result. For the prevention of “bleeding”, one should only use a cleaner which is recommended by a manufacturer, and the cylinders should be oiled with corrosion protection products after use.

 

The Die-Cutting Tool

Various die-cutting tools are used depending on the application, material and machine type or cutting unit. In order for the tool to be perfectly adapted for the desired purpose, all relevant parameters must be provided with the order.

 

Thanks to their many advantages, flexible dies in combination with magnetic cylinders have been established as standard in the label business. Flexible dies are not only relatively cost effective, but also shorten the set-up time at job changes, are easily replaced and their storing saves space. In order to guarantee manufacturing tolerances of a few microns, state-of-the-art CNC technology is used. The tool manufacturers offer flexible dies in various qualities and finishing options that are recommended for various applications, depending on the provider.

 

Often laser hardening is applied, which gives the cutting tip a particular stability and is therefore predestined for cutting through filmic materials in long runs. Special coatings (e.g., with nickel or chromium) protect the cutting lines from wear from abrasive materials and allow long lifetimes. Various non-stick coatings can be used against ink and adhesives residue, so that residues on the cutting edge and die surface are minimized.

 

On the other hand, solid dies (cutting cylinders) are still the first choice for some applications, e.g. when particularly voluminous materials are processed or punched parts need to be extracted. As a variant of the cutting cylinder, sheeting and slitting cylinders are equipped with interchangeable knives, which are used for tear-off or folding perforations, and other applications.

 

In contrast to flexible dies, solid dies offer the advantage that they can be repeatedly reworked and resharpened. However, solid dies are considerably more time and cost intensive to manufacture than flexible dies. Moreover, unlike with flexible dies it is not possible to undertake subsequent corrections by turning, shifting or under laying the tool.

 

Solutions for Cutting Problem

When cutting problems occur, the cause can usually be ascribed to one of the following three components. Therefore, it always makes sense to check the following points first:

 

  • Which material has been cut?

(Type and composition of the material, thickness of the liner, desired application: kiss-cutting and/or cutting-through)

  • Are cutting unit and cylinders in a flawless condition?

(Contaminants, wear, stability pretension / cutting pressure, size of gap, sufficient width-circumference ratio)

  • Is the cutting tool okay?

(Contaminants, wear, production errors)

 

In this context, the operator should always recheck the order details. A flexible die can only be manufactured perfectly, if all relevant material and machine specifications are delivered exactly and completely, along with the measurements of the labels.

Right Office Chairs Bring You The Comfortable Working Environment

Many people don’t realize the importance of a good office chair. That is, until you sit in a bad one for 40 hours a week. Chances are that it isn’t necessarily that you are sitting so long; but that your chair is not made to give you the most ergonomic seat and that can lead to a lot of fatigue.

 

You will want to take into consideration how tall you are how wide of a seat you want and what kinds of support features you like.

 

First look at the height of the chair. You should find one that has easily accessible controls for moving the seat up and down. Typically, your feet should touch the ground with your legs horizontal to the floor and your arms at the same height, or higher, than your desk. Good chairs also feature controls for seat tilt as well. This will help you get the right angle so you are in the correct position to support your back. Rounded seats will be much more comfortable on the backs of your legs as well. Back height adjustments are great if you will be sharing this chair with others in your home or office.

 

A good ergonomic office chair will offer you a lumbar support of some kind. This will keep your lower back arched the way it is supposed to, to avoid aching in that area.

 

Pay attention to the material that the chair is covered with. There should be extra padding on the seat, and/or backrest for ultimate comfort. Leather chairs are often softer and plusher, as well as being easy to clean. Mesh chairs breathe well and will keep your back from sweating.

 

The last thing to consider is mobility. Does it swivel? Does it weigh too much to easily move along the floor? Most chairs are made to be lightweight enough that you can roll without much effort.

 

Taiwan local company Fuh Shyan Co., Ltd. and VOXIM Co., Ltd. are professional and reliable office chairs manufacturer in the industry. They can offer you kinds of office chairs including executive desk chairs, lounge seating, public seating, mesh chairs, ergonomic computer desk chair etc. To have the most comfortable working environment, please choose right ergonomic office chairs first. Welcome to visit the website of Fuh Shyan and VOXIM to find out the most suitable office equipment.

Make Your Rubber Products Crack Proof with Ozone Testing

Rubber is a very useful material that is used in almost all the industries to produce various types of products like tires, seals, gaskets, footwear, household products, industrial material, fasteners, etc. These products are manufactured by processing the natural rubber into vulcanized form. As the natural rubbers are very soft and fragile in nature, they can’t be used for production process of any material whether domestic or industrial. Hence, to make the rubber useful, the process of vulcanization is followed. Vulcanization of the rubbers is the process through which the physical and chemical properties of natural rubber are changed to some extent by adding sufficient amount of sulphur to it. This automatically changes various properties of the Sulphur and makes the rubber hard to use for production purposes. The amount of adding sulphur is not fixed; this depends on the application for which the rubber is needed.

 

After the process of vulcanization, rubber is sent to different industries to proceed for further manufacturing. When the rubber material goes through the rigorous manufacturing process, the strong and high-quality of rubbers products will be obtained that are used for various industrial purposes as well as for domestic purposes. The rubber compounds are used for various crucial applications like aircraft, aerospace, defense equipment, and many more. Hence, the rubber material which is used to manufacture these products must be of topmost quality and utmost grade. This is only possible if proper quality testing techniques should be followed while testing the quality of the rubbers. This can be done with the help of high quality of testing instruments. The testing devices that are used to verify the quality of the rubbers must be of best quality. One of the best testing instruments which are used to check the quality of the rubbers is “Ozone Test Chamber“.

 

The rubber goods frequently face the harsh working conditions that also have the presence of Ozone layer in it. The ozone is a very harsh has that adversely affect the quality of the rubbers and the mechanical properties of the rubbers products. This forces the manufacturers to test the effect of ozone on any rubber product. The ozone chamber is an extremely accurate testing instrument which is used to measure the impact of ozone concentration on various properties of the rubbers. It is a closed cabinet that produces original ozone environment to assess the effects of the ozone on the properties of the rubber compounds accurately.

 

If you are looking for machinery of ozone test, Ektron Tek will be the best choice for you. Their ozone test chambers can provide precise and accurate ozone (OZ) concentration environment for rubber and polymer test. For more details, try to visit the Ozone Test Chambers Expert – Ektron Tek.

Precision Grinding for The Fine Machining of Sheet Metal in EMO Hannover 2017

Timesavers International will be introducing the latest generation of precision grinding machines from their 81 series. The grinders are deemed particularly suitable for the fine machining of titanium, corrosion-resistant steel, aluminum and other metallic materials with maximum lengths of 7,500 mm and widths up to 2,100 mm.

 

Thanks to the high machining precision when grinding the upper and lower surfaces, a thickness accuracy tolerance of 25 micrometers can be attained, as the Dutch exhibitors point out. The stationary head configuration is said to guarantee high sheet thickness accuracy, since this accuracy only depends on the position of the grinding belt with respect to the slide moving underneath. To ensure extra precision, the temperature of the cooling fluid, namely water, is thermostatically maintained at 20°C with a tolerance of some tenths of a degree. The fluid can recirculate with the use of a filter that removes grinding waste. The workpieces are clamped on the movable slide with atmospheric pressure, thanks to the vacuum suction below. As is also emphasized, the complete main grinding head can be accurately adjusted in a vertical direction to meet the nominal sheet thickness and to compensate for grinding belt wear. It is reportedly possible to calibrate sheets with a thickness as low as 0.18 mm. The base frame, which is almost 15 m long, consists of a stiff welded construction, supporting stone-ground prismatic guideways on which recirculating ball units run. The table itself is driven by a rack-and-pinion unit with a pre-tensioned gearwheel.

 

EMO Hannover can help you reach key business partners and tap into new markets. It’s a not-to-be-missed opportunity to impress a choice international audience with your products and/or services.

 

For grinding machine, I can tell you some information about exhibitors from Taiwan that will take part in EMO Hannover 2017. Taiwan local companies, such as AXISCO Precision Machinery, CHEVALIER In Falcon Machine Tools, Dowell-Tong Yi Machinery, Joen Lih Machinery, and Top Work Industry, all of them are the best grinding machines manufacturer in the industry.

What Are The Disadvantages of Fabric Dyeing?

Do you know how the colored fabrics get the attractive colors and in different shades? Mostly, the coloration of the greige fabrics is done in the dyeing process. I have explained different types of fabric dyeing processes in a separate article. In this post, I will show you various disadvantages of the fabric dyeing.

 

Disadvantages of Fabric Dyeing

Among the many drawbacks of fabric dyeing, the following are important.

 

Variation of shade from beginning till the end along the running length of the fabrics, thus resulting in tailing. This creates a greater number of shade lots resulting in more of color groups among the garments.

 

Variation of shade from one selvedge to the other, resulting in increasing the consumption and wastage of fabrics per meter while conversion to garments.

 

Below satisfactory packaging efficiency, below 80% in most of the mills, due to the above problems, which are just two out of the innumerable ones generated in fabric dyeing.

 

Although the cost is apparently lower in fabric dyeing, the lower packing efficiency and the higher number of reprocessing practically shoots up the fabric cost. Also, reprocessing in most cases is based on trial and error without a surety of getting the desired results.

 

What replaced fabric dyeing?

 

To overcome the drawbacks of fabric dyeing as well as to add value to the fabrics, yarn dyeing was introduced as an alternative. The advantages of yarn dyeing are:

 

Checks and stripes could be made easily which was difficult earlier. They added to the varieties of fabrics that could be made.

 

Dyeing a yarn was easier with the machines involved smaller in size and volume.

 

Reprocessing was easier with predictable results.

 

Fabric defects generated due to yarn dyeing was lesser as compared to fabric dyeing.

 

Although process cost is higher in a case of yarn dyeing as compared to fabric dyeing, the lower reprocessing rate and lesser fabric defects generated keep the fabric cost in control with more of varieties.

 

Yarn dyeing is however not a new innovation altogether; it was in fact extensively used for the purposes of surface designs, embroidery, and handcrafted textiles. The bulk operation of the same gathered momentum after fabric dyeing could not be improved beyond a certain limit in terms of efficiency.

Something You Need To Know About Injection Moulding Machine?

Injection moulding is the most common method used to create large numbers of identical items from plastics. Most polymers can be used in the process and products produced by injection moulding include bottle lids, plastic combs, small pieces of furniture and even car door panels. Essentially, the injection moulding process involves feeding plastic polymers in a pelletized form through a hopper into a chamber.

 

As the material passes along the chamber a rotating screw mixes and melts the material. Once sufficient molten plastic material has collected at the end of the chamber the screw acts as a plunger and the material is injected into a mould, usually made of metal. Moulds are carefully designed to reflect the exact requirements of the product being produced. Finally, the plastic solidifies into a shape that has conformed to the shape of the mould. Once cooled slightly, sometimes a robotic arm is used to remove the moulded components but it is more common for the freshly-made items to drop out of the mould into a chute leading to a collection container.

 

An injection moulding machine is used to manufacture plastic products by the injection moulding process detailed above. There are two main parts to the machines – the injection unit and the clamping unit. In the majority of injection moulding machines the mould is fastened in the horizontal position but moulds can also be fitted in the vertical position in some cases allowing gravity to aid the process. Moulds are most commonly fastened to the machine by manual clamps using bolts but can also be fastened using hydraulic or magnetic clamps which both allow for faster tool changes.

 

Injection moulding machines are rated by tonnage and Shot weight which expresses the amount of clamping force that the machine can exert to keep the mould closed during the process and the maximum weight of article that can be moulded. However, machines are primarily classified by the type of driving systems they use namely hydraulic, mechanical, and electrical or hybrid. Hydraulic machines are most predominant in most parts of the world with the exception of Japan and were the only option available until 1983. Although widely-used they tend not to be as precise as other machine types. Mechanical injection moulding machines tend to be more reliable than other types.

 

Electric injection moulding machines decrease operating costs by reducing energy consumption and also address some of the environmental concerns around these machines. They are more expensive than other types but are quieter, faster and more accurate. Hybrid machines combine the best of hydraulic and electric types but in reality use almost the same amount of electricity to operate as a standard hydraulic machine.

 

There are many manufacturers/suppliers of injection moulding machines and new advances are being made in the field all the time and so it is worth researching options and services on offer before making a final decision.

 

Multiplas Enginery Co., Ltd. is the company of specializing in producing injection moulding machine, rubber moulding machine, high speed injection molding machine and so on machinery. Learn more information about injection moulding machines, please feel free to contact with Multiplas.

Telling You Some Basics of CNC Routers

A CNC router is an acronym for a computer numerically controlled router. This is a machine used in the manufacturing industry, mainly for cutting through materials like wood, metals and plastics. A router is special because it is controlled by software as opposed to mechanically by a human.

 

This is of interest to the manufacturing industry because it produces better results. You might wonder why that is, surely a human could do better work than a computer? The reason a router can work better than a mechanically controlled router is because the software that controls it allows it to move in a closer more detailed and steadier manner than a human ever could. This does not mean that there is never human intervention when it comes to the router, but what it means is that the movements are ultimately made by a computer, so are extremely accurate and detailed and the machine can move the tiniest amount if that is what is needed. This is why CNC routers improve manufacturing. They can also work continuously whereas a human would have to take a break and results would get lower in quality the longer they continue, due to fatigue.

 

A CNC router looks somewhat like a table top work station that operates on its own. Parts that a CNC router has include a cutting tool, a control panel, a worktop and, naturally, a router. There are many other parts that also make up this fascinating CNC machine.

 

CNC routers take a lot of skill to make. That is because the person or team that produces one needs skills from varying fields. That is they need to be able to design the machine to start with. Then they need to be able to source the parts and be able to assemble it from scratch in a safe manner. IT and programming skills also need to be thrown into the mix in order to create the software that the machine runs on. So, as you can see there really is a broad range of talents required to create a CNC router; it is certainly not an easy task.

 

If you need to use a router there are a few different ways of taking advantage of one. The best option is to go with a CNC machining provider. These firms have CNC routers that are ready to be used and can be programmed to match your productions needs. They are especially useful if you only need to manufacture a small amount, or a certain part. They also provide a team of experts with the broad range of talents mentioned above who can assist and advise you with your production.

 

There is also the option of building a CNC router. This will require a lot of skill but it is certainly possible to build a basic one and it can be a fun task if CNC machinery is a hobby of yours.

 

TRUPRO-TEC Industrial Co., Ltd. is the company of specializing in kinds of metalworking machines and woodworking machines. CNC router is one of excellent machinery manufactured by them. If you need further details about CNC router series, welcome to visit their website and feel free to contact with Trupro-Tec.

Guide On How To Buy A Laser Cutting Machine

A laser cutting machine is a machine that uses laser lights to cut through different materials such as metal, wood, textiles, acrylic among many others. When it comes to metal cutting, you can use it to cut different types of metals such as stainless steel, steel, and aluminum.

 

Laser cutting is preferred by many people as its accuracy, has a very small kerf width, yields excellent cut quality, and has a small heat effect zone.

 

For you to buy the right machine you need to consider a number of factors:

 

Function

 

How will you be using the machine? You can use the cutting machine for two main functions: cutting and engraving. As mentioned, you can use it on different materials. The materials have different specifications; therefore, before you head to the stores you should decide on how you will use your machine.

 

Bed size

 

The bed size of the machine determines the amount of work you can do. The bed size varies from A3 to A1 where the bigger the size, the more the work that your machine can handle. The bed size is a permanent feature; therefore, you can’t change it in the future.

 

The decision should be based on the amount of work that you are planning of handling. For example, if you are planning of handling large projects you should go for a machine with a large bed.

 

Optic quality

 

The quality of the optics is the one that determines how well the machine performs. Many unknowledgeable people think that the wattage is the one that determines how effective the machine works, but this isn’t true.

 

When making the purchase you shouldn’t bother with the amount of power that the machine consumes-you should concentrate on the quality of the optics.

 

To determine the quality of the optics you should ask the seller to demonstrate how the machine works on different materials and settings.

 

Ease of use

 

If you are a new buyer you most likely don’t know how to use the laser cutting machine. A good machine should come with an easy-to-follow manual. The manual should not only show you how to use the machine, but also how to undertake minor repairs.

 

Conclusion

 

These are tips on how to buy the right laser cutting machine. Although, the machine is designed to cut different materials, you should avoid cutting plastic with it as plastic tends to give off chlorine gas which is harmful when you breathe it.
