Bobst is enhancing manufacturing production, speed and quality with Boxplan Hybridsetter – a dynamic waste stripping tool for die cutters.
With the Boxplan Hybridsetter, three-dimensional dynamic stripping forms can be manufactured. It offers automatic setting of pins and claws from a magazine in one pass to dramatically increase efficiency and quality of the tool making.
All parameters, including variable pin height, are filed in the machine’s control system to match the differing needs of customers and materials, enabling greater flexibility to the overall stripping process.
Graeme Doran, regional service manager, tooling, said: ‘Hybridsetter is where evolution meets revolution in the die cutting arena. With Boxplan Hybridsetter, it is possible to prepare fully automatic, fast and easy complex stripping forms for all demands, with free combination of pins and claws – an industry first.
‘The result is shorter set up times of the die cutter, more sheet output and an end to manual labour in setting the pins and claws. Superb tool quality ensures top stripping performance and accuracy of the waste removal in the die cutter for all applications, including recycled material, prime fibre board, laminated sheets, e-flute and corrugated board.
‘For manufacturers, this is a game changing technology that not only delivers but excels in areas of efficiency, productivity, quality and cost. It is a perfect example of how Bobst is delivering solutions which respond to wide-ranging customer requirements.’
Boxplan Hybridsetter is suitable for tools for all kinds of die cutters, regardless of age size and speed. The software it uses enables the storage of customer and material specifications for future use and Bobst offers a full training and support service to ensure customers are able to optimise machine performance.
