What will be difference between cylindrical die punching and Dextra?

“Cylinder presses were originally built for letterpress printing and later it was used for die cutting. Platen will be in cylinder form and die will be in flat form. diffcult for the operator to reach the die chase for make ready, leading to physical fatigue and longer make ready time. Due to foil diameter, foil role change frequency will be more and reducing the productive time. Productive speed is questionable. Dextra is exclusively designed for Die cutting, creasing, embossing and hot foil stamping process. Both the die and platen are in flat form. Better register accuracy. Better productivity, due to higher pile height of feeder and delivery pile change time loss can be minimized. Suitable for processing wide range of substrates.”

Cam indexer is the mechanical drive system and servo drive system is electronic driven system, ensure high precission positioning of the gripper bar, better registration.

What is the use of die punching machine?

A Die punching machine is primarily used for cutting, shaping, and engraving materials such as paper, fabric, leather, rubber, plastic, and metal. It involves using a die or a sharp metal blade to punch through the material, creating a desired pattern or shape. Die-punching machines are often used in manufacturing industries for producing large quantities of products or for creating intricate designs. They are commonly used for making packaging materials, labels, stickers, envelopes, book covers, and other products. Die-punching machines range from manual to fully automated and can be customized to suit specific production needs.

This die punching machine is capable and designed basically for performing Die-Cutting, Creasing, Punching, and Embossing Jobs on various merchandise like Paper, Cardboard, Fibre Board, Vinyl, Foam, Rubber, Leather, Masonite, Cork Sheets, affixed Boxes, Advertising Cut out, Jigsaw Puzzles, Labels, and far more.

What is the punch-and-die method?

The action of a Punch & Die uses a solid metal piece, the “Punch” located vertically above the “Die”. The Die corresponds in size and shape to the Punch and is secured directly beneath the Punch. The Punch is usually, hydraulically driven to meet the Die.


Drip off UV Coating Machine
What is matrix cutter?

To cut the matric according to required length of cutting blade

What is UV drip-off?

Drip Off represents an efficient and eye-catching method to achieve matt/gloss effects or matt/structure effects in a single process with just one coating unit. The principle: in the last ink duct, a primer is partially used. Out of the coating unit, a high gloss coating is applied in the full area. Where primer and high gloss coating meet, a repellent effect is realized. Where the primer has been left out, you realize high gloss surfaces. In this way, you can produce fine printing motives without a spot coating plate. Depending on the primer, application amount, and the setting of your printing press (power of UV lamps), you can achieve medium to strong structures which provide a high visual and haptical difference compared to the high gloss coating. The systems are characterized by very good scratch and scuff resistance.

What is drip printing?

Drip-off printing is used to get a matte/gloss effect or structure in just one single coating. First, the portions that need to be in gloss are processed together and then the remaining parts (excluding the glossy bits) are given a matte coating.

Is UV coating water resistant?

Is UV coating waterproof? No, UV coating is not waterproof, but it is water-resistant. UV coating shouldn’t be confused with other types of paper finishing processes, such as aqueous coating and lamination.


Blister Coating Machine
What is blister coating?

Blister coating with excellent sealing properties is key to a perfectly working sealing process. The reason: Blister packaging consists of the printed and coated blister card and a hood, often made of plastics. A sealing process with pressure and heat or ultrasound is used to connect these two elements.

How does a blister pack machine work?

PVC base film is fetched from the reel before it is fed into the blister-forming unit. Blisters get continuously formed and the web is taken to the sealing station by using a guide track. There is also a suitable automatic filling system provided in the machine.

What is blister varnish?

Blister packaging or carded packaging are those familiar forms of packaging that feature a thermoformed product containing a blister cell that is heat sealed to a printed coated card. The heat seal coating influences the appearance and physical integrity of the package.

Spot UV Coating Machine
What is spot UV coating?

Spot UV coating is a transparent varnish hardened and cured by ultraviolet light. It is a great way to add a premium look and feel to your products. This type of coating creates a raised, glossy effect that really makes your products stand out.

How is spot UV done?

The UV varnish is spread across a die-cut template, usually a thin film, which is placed over each sheet to ensure that only the required elements of the design are coated. After application, the sheets are subjected to either infrared or ultraviolet light, which dries the coating instantly.

What is a UV coating machine?

A UV coating machine is used to apply the coating after printing. UV coatings can vary in reflectivity and thickness, depending on the application, though a high-gloss or subtle matte UV coating is typically used for premium printing applications.

How do you make a spot UV layer?

Flatbed die presses are available in mechanical, hydraulic, and electric models and have configurations that vary from application to application.

What is the difference between a rotary die cut and a flatbed die cut?

Flatbed die cutting: As its name implies, a hydraulic flatbed press pushes down blades that cut material to the desired shape. Rotary die cutting: A cylindrical die, with blades around the entire cylinder, cuts shapes out of the material, moving in a circular motion.

What are the different types of die-cut machines?

Three of the most popular types of die-cutting methods include flatbed die cutting, rotary die cutting, and waterjet cutting


UV Coater
What is a UV coating machine?

A UV coating machine is used to apply the coating after printing. UV coatings can vary in reflectivity and thickness, depending on the application, though a high-gloss or subtle matte UV coating is typically used for premium printing applications.

What does UV coating stand for?

UV coating, also known as ultraviolet coating, is a transparent, lustrous liquid coating applied to printed materials. This coating is a popular printing technique for protecting items that are handled often during delivery. The coating is a type of coating that is applied to printed material.

What is the difference between UV coating and varnish?

Ultraviolet (UV) coatings dry hard, so when the printed material is folded or creased it is more likely to crack. Compared to a varnish, aqueous coatings offer more protection from scuffs and scratches.


Batch Coding Machine
