Technical training high performance rotary cutting dies at DS Smith Grenaa

Andrew Powell, Technical Sales Manager of PolyMX,  had the privilege of giving a training at the DS Smith site Grenaa. The goal of this training was to give the attendees detailed information about Rotary Diecutting. The training gave insight on how Rotary dies are made and what pitfalls you can come across.

The following topics were addressed:

  • Structural Design (and it’s limitations)
  • Manufacturing of a Rotary Die
  • Choice of materials such as shells and rotary rules
  • SRP & RRP Perforation Rules
  • Ejection Materials

Andrew and the attendees also took a look at the effects of poor maintenance. To achieve great results on a rotary diecutter the machine has to be in perfect working order. If not, this has influence on the lifespan of the machine and it’s auxillary components. What people forget is that maintenance also has a great influence on the dimensional stability of a product.
