Starview’s SDC Series combination slitting and die cutting machines are a cost effective way to trim skin packaged products. These machines eliminate the use of individual steel rule dies for each different package configuration. The SDC Series features an intermittent motion in-feed conveyor to transfer skin boards to the die cutting and slitting area. Circular cutters running against a hardened steel roller are used to slit parallel to the movement of the skin board. A pneumatic press activates the cross cutting perpendicular to the movement of the skin board. The interval at which this cut is made is programmable from the touch screen operator interface panel.
