Standard Finishing Systems, a leading supplier of post-press and paper handling solutions, recently announced an updated version of their RD-4055 die cutting solution: the Standard Horizon RD-N4055 Die Cutting System. The system combines a high-capacity feeder, a single- or dual-magnetic cylinder die cutter, a new separator, and an optional card stacker for efficient, operator-friendly production.
As part of Standard Horizon’s popular RD series of die cutters, the system can die cut, kiss-cut, emboss/deboss, crease/score, perforate, slit, hole punch, and round corner in a single pass or in multiple combinations for a wide range of applications including business cards, invitations, labels, door hangers, light packaging, and more. With the addition of the SPC-N4055 Separator and optional CSD-40RD Card Stacker, the system also eliminates the need for manual separating and counting at the delivery section to allow operators to work more efficiently, to improve accuracy with an automated, verified piece count, and to increase production efficiency for small and short-run pieces.
Small-format product is pile stacked – in 1-up or in multiple stack output – and transported by belt for offloading at the delivery section, eliminating manual separation, counting, and stacking. A sensor on each delivery path counts individual pieces to eliminate human error in counting and to improve accuracy. The system flags and displays any undercounts on the system’s touchscreen monitor so that operators can catch errors quickly.
The RD-N4055 Die Cutting System can increase productivity by 20% compared to previous RD models, and supports sheet sizes up to 21.65” x 15.74” and as small as 3.15” x 1.969”
“The RD-N4055 is a welcome addition to our proven line of RD die cutters,” said David Reny, Executive Vice President, Standard Finishing Systems. “Our manufacturing partners at Horizon listened closely to customers and end users and created a combination system that improves on previous generations of die cutters while introducing new levels of automation for a highly productive, operator-friendly system that can easily keep up with today’s short-run on demand market.”
