Omet Monotwin – A label die cutting revolution

Press release from the issuing company

Lecco, Italy – OMET announced the release of their revolutionary new “Monotwin” diecutting system for labels & tags. The “Monotwin”  die cutting system simplifies the diecutting process and reduces costs. This new system uses a single magnetic cylinder for all label sizes, thereby eliminating the need for the converter to stock a range of different tooling.

The “MonoTwin die cut system operates by rotating at a constant speed during the cutting phase, while its servo controlled motor allows it to adjust its idling speed to the acceleration and deceleration of the press while staying synchronized for the next cut. The unit is available for both the Omet X-Jet (digital) and Omet X-Flex (flexo) series of presses.

The unit is simple and intuitive to use, eliminates the need  for a hoist to lift heavy cylinders, and completes a changeover in seconds by simply replacing the cutting sheet. Operational control of the unit, web tension, and waste extraction are all carried out via the main operator control board, while pre-register and register control is fully automatic.  The OMET X-FLEX sets a new benchmark in performance for the narrow web industry with exceptionally low waste, very fast print changeovers and low ink usage. The OMET X-FLEX won the FTA Techncial Innovation award in 2008 for it’s revolutionary design and performance. The “Monotwin”  is a perfect compliment to the X-FLEX providing unmatched end-to-end press performance. Allowing you to changeover an entire 8-color press in minutes (including die cut repeats) with very, very low waste!  OMET is an Italian manaufacturer of narrow & mid-web presses. OMET has been an innovative leader since 1963.
