Schober USA introduces a new converting system that is based on the well proven RSM & PBO designs that allows for the in-line finishing of products such as trays, inner frames, folding cartons and more. A preprinted roll is very accurately re-registered, creased and die cut. Discrete waste partials are securely removed. The discrete blanks are then transferred in register and further processed in for example a gluer folder/sealer, delivered and stacked. For further productivity improvements a nonstop unwind can be added. Splices are detected and removed automatically. The various well known Schober magnetic, solid or segmented die cutting and creasing technologies can be incorporated depending on product requirements. To compensate for wear or material variations the cutting gap micro adjustment is integrated.
Products with repeats as small as 3″ to 24″ and more can be processed at speeds of 500ft/min and far beyond, depending if inline or offline operation is required. Both the RSM and PBO can be systems are provided depending on the carton caliber 160 to 450 gsm and web widths required, up to 56″ wide. This concept does allow for reduced process time, reduces production steps and opens up press capacity.
