Daco PLD250 / PLD350 / PLD430 Rotary Die Cutter With A Semi-Automatic Turret Rewinder

PLD Semi automatic turret rewinder available with a one or two rotary die cutting stations, web widths of 250mm (10″), 350mm (13.75″) or 430mm (17") and offers the user the benefits of turret rewinding for short run work. (UK Patent Number GB2584200)

Daco PLD250 / PLD350 / PLD430 Rotary Die Cutter With A Semi-Automatic Turret Rewinder


The Daco PLD rotary die cutter with a semi-automatic turret rewinder offers all the benefits of turret rewinding but with rapid make-ready times, unlike conventional turret rewinding. This allows shorter runs to be produced both quickly and more efficiently.

The PLD250 / PLD350 / PLD430 is a very efficient rotary die cutter with a 3 spindle semi-automatic turret rewinder for small roll production. Unlike traditional die cutters, where the machine is stopped for a considerable time while operators cut and re-apply the web to the cores, the semi-automatic turret is only stopped for a few seconds while the turret indexes. New cores are applied to the rewind shaft while the machine is in production; the turret automatically cuts the web and applies the web to the new cores.

Many clients are finding that the PLD250 / PLD350 / PLD430 machine is the ideal solution to produce thermal labels for desktop and industrial thermal transfer printers and the production of price gun labels. With the rotary die removed the machine can be used as a very productive slitter rewinder for small and large roll production.

If further automation is required, the Daco TD fully automatic plain label production line which has a servo-driven rotary die station(s), 4 spindle servo turret rewinder with label closure which increases productivity further.

Web widths 250mm (10″), 350mm (13.75″) and 430mm (17″)
