Korber PaperLink demonstrates LabelCut 102 precision sheeter at drupa 2004

Press release from the issuing company

Hamburg, Germany; April 30, 2004 -- Kugler-Womako, a Körber PaperLink Group company, is presenting a high precision sheeter for labels at drupa 2004. Along with wet glue labels, the LabelCut 102 machine also allows the manufacture of soft packs for cigarettes and similar sized sheets from paper and BOPP film. The LabelCut 102 will be demonstrated to visitors under production conditions on the Körber PaperLink stand at drupa (Hall 11, A62). The whole in-line process will be shown from the printed paper roll to the finished shaped labels in maxi packs. As an example of its precision, in order to punch labels for bottles it is first necessary to cut strips from the printed paper roll. With the LabelCut 102, Kugler-Womako provides a solution that cuts these strips from the roll individually with tight tolerances and with just a few handling steps. The cut tolerances are +/- 0.1 millimeters for the longitudinal cutter and +/- 0.15 millimeters for the transverse cutter. The cut length and the side trim are controlled electronically by reading printed marks. The machine is equipped with a spoilage detection system so that faulty strips are rejected from the stack. This guarantees a consistently high quality of strips. The LabelCut 102 also is characterized by its flexibility. It can be adjusted for new formats in just a few minutes thanks to the use of modern electronics. The production speed reaches up to 200 meters per minute or 2000 cuts per minute. This allows users to accommodate different orders quickly and smoothly. As an option, the LabelCut 102 can be fitted with an embossing calender, an in-line connection to the de-stacker, to die cutters or to an in-line guillotine for square labels.
