Label Metrics purchases a Daco D250 rotary die cutter for the production of plain labels for its Hull based production facility.
The D250 was a replacement for a Daco DTD250 that was purchased a few years ago for short run and quick change over jobs, which saw Label Metrics running up to 40 – 50 jobs a day. The longer running jobs are manufactured on their Daco PLD350 machines with 1m (40”) unwinds and semi-automatic turret rewinding.
We noticed that some of the so called short run jobs were requiring several roll changes and the Daco DTD250 only had a 1,000 linear metre unwind so the decision was taken to purchase a Daco D250 with a 2,000 linear metre unwind and Daco part exchanged our Daco DTD250, commented Shaun Roberts, Managing Director of Label Metrics.
Daco Solution’s sales manager, Mark Laurence, explains that we developed a web advance for the D250 because Label Metrics liked the feature on their existing Daco DSI330, when coupled with a short web path, Daco DBS back scorer and touch screen with job storage is set to accelerate Label Metrics short run work considerably.
