Daco DTD250 Table Top Rotary Die Cutter

Daco DTD250 Table Top Rotary Die Cutter for blank label production


The Daco DTD 250 table top rotary die cutter is a cost-effective, robust and easy to use machine for blank / plain label converting for short to medium production runs. The label rotary die cutter is available with either one or two rotary die cutting stations, rotary slitting and independent tension control for the unwind/rewind and has a production speed of 150m/minute (492 ft/minute). Many DTD250 rotary die cutters have been installed at clients who use them to produce plain labels for the growing thermal label transfer market.

The Daco DTD250 table top rotary die cutters compact size and short web path keep wastage to a minimum, the fully adjustable silicone covered nip drive roller helps to keep downtime to a minimum as labels cannot attach themselves to the roller. The DTD250 has accurate tension control using a pneumatic unwind with an infinitely variable brake and a servo-driven rewind.

Quick set rotary slitting with on the run lateral adjustment is fitted as standard, the slitting knives can be set with the web in position, unlike some cartridge systems. A splice table makes web splices both quick and straightforward. Quick change air mandrel for the product rewind ensures that cores a gripped firmly.

The standard die station can accept Mark Andy 2200, Edale Alpha & Beta, Focus and KDO (K2) tooling; die blocks are available for dies from other manufacturers.

With the addition of a Daco DBS back scorer for edge trim removal and RotoMetrics hydra jack system make the machine very quick and easy to set with very minimal material wastage during setup.

The rotary die cutter can be used as a slitter rewinder for the finishing of pre-printed labels by removing the rotary die, or you could consider the Daco DT250 tabletop slitter rewinder.
