Daco D350S – Fully Servo Driven Die Cut / Sheeter

  • Daco D350S A3/ A4 sheeting line for the prodcution of laser labels

The Daco D350S sheeting machine for the production of laser labels. The D350S can produce A5, A4, A3 & SRA3 sheet labels; the die station and sheeting unit are both fully servo driven with the sheeting station only using one cylinder to produce all sheet sizes.

The Daco D350S can die cut and sheet to register for clients wishing to convert material from digital or flexographic label presses. The machine is also capable of producing labels on rolls allowing plain label production for thermal printers and is aimed at the short to medium production runs. The D350S is quick to setup through the use of innovative servo software and intuitive touch screen which allows the operator to be in production with only eight sheets of setup.

The large 700mm (27.5″) unwind has an electronic brake and taper tension control. An optional upgrade to a U350L 1m (40”) unwind module will keep roll changes to a minimum.

Standard Features of the Daco D350S – Fully Servo Driven Die Cut / Sheeter

Web width: 350mm (13.75”)
U350 Unwind Module

  • Maximum unwind diameter: 700mm (27.5”)
  • 76mm (3″) diameter air shaft
  • Electromagnetic particle brake
  • Taper tension control
  • Programmable end of roll function
    • The user is able to program the roll end diameter – slowdown and / or stop. The system does not use any roll followers or external sensors that can be damaged at roll changes. The diameter is programmed from the touch screen operator interface
  • Web up – the operator from the touch screen operator interface, release the unwind brake to allow for simple webbing up of the machine.

BST electronic web guide

  • Ultrasonic sensor – enables guiding of opaque and clear materials
  • Adjustable web guide sensor
  • +/- 25mm (1″) correction
  • Integral splice table with pneumatic web clamps

DBS-350 back scorer

  • 2 back scoring knives enable crack backs and edge trim removal

De-curler positioned prior to 1st die station to assist in removing curl from the material. De-curling bar has both sharp and radiuses edges to give options for coated materials

Die Station 1
Servo Driven Rotary die station with Matrix Rewind

  • Cutter repeat lengths: 8″-18.5″
  • Fixed RotoMetrics through hardened anvil.
  • Precision ground 20mm (0.78″) thick die plates
  • Gearing 1/8” CP 20 Degree Pressure Angle on front side of anvil and 32DP on rear side of anvil
  • Rotometrics die pressure gauges with Quick Release system to minimise downtime
  • Lateral Adjustment of Die station (the complete die station rather than just the die adjusts by +/-15mm)
  • Die springs fitted to the die station to lift the magnetic cylinder to allow easy changing of the magnetic plates

SETUP MODE – this enables the operator to jog the machine at a slow speed with the guards removed.

Diecut to Register Control system with an accuracy of +/-0.25mm (0.010”) at a constant speed. A registration mark must be printed on each sheet, and must be positioned away from any other print which could interfere with the registration sensor.

Crush Slitting Station
With 3 quick release Crush Knives for edge trimming or slitting when producing labels on a roll. Utilises Tidland air operated crush knifes which operate against a Rotometrics through hardened anvil. Crush knives can be easily added or removed on a quick release system, and the crush pressure is controlled by means of a pressure regulator and gauge.

Sheeting Station

  • Servo driven sheeting (Uses 1 fixed die cylinder with either 1 or 2 sheeting blades)
  • Sheet lengths 100mm – 1400mm
  • Fixed RotoMetrics through hardened anvil.
  • Precision ground 20mm (0.78″) thick die plates
  • Gearing 1/8” CP 20 Degree Pressure Angle on front side of anvil and 32DP on rear side of anvil
  • Rotometrics die pressure gauges with Quick Release system to minimise downtime
    • Diecut to Register Control system with an accuracy of +/-0.25mm (0.010”) at a constant speed. A registration mark must be printed on each sheet, and must be positioned away from any other print which could interfere with the registration sensor.
  • Indexing conveyor with batch count facility. Both accelerating conveyor and indexing conveyor to utilise wide 20mm flat belts.
  • Adjustable Doctor Blade on the Anvil Sheeting Station

Maximum web speed: 130 metres / minute (426 feet/minute) dependent upon material and sheet length

Count Facility:

  • Sheets
  • Labels
  • Length – meters
  • Stop on diameter

Fully adjustable servo driven silicone nip roller

Colour touch screen HMI operator interface

  • Highlights machine status & error messages
  • Counting options
  • Tension settings
