In-line laser die cutting station


Electronics manufacturers seeking in-line laser die cutting for their production lines can now obtain a Finecut Laser Die Cutting Station® from Spartanics. The Finecut Laser Die Cutting Station is the world's only in-line laser die cutter powered by Spartanics software that automates cutting sequences for optimum web speeds, has a built-in job run estimation tool, seamlessly cuts and stitches images to create parts in unlimited part lengths, reloads jobs in seconds, and other features for defect-free cutting as fast as100 meters/minute web speed with a single laser source.

Spartanics Laser Die Cutting Stations can be built into print lines of all types-offset, digital, screen, etc.-and/or positioned at any point in an assembly chassis. In a growing roster of applications, these in-line laser die cutters are preferable to rotary die cutting stations both for higher quality cutting, lower costs, and quicker job turnarounds by eliminating time needed for tool production.

The Spartanics Laser Die Cutting Station can be configured with laser powers ranging from 100 watts to 1000 watts. Material cutting areas range from 200 mm x 200 mm to 600 mm x 600 mm depending on the application. Laser spot size can range from 210 to 280 microns.

X, Y and Theta cut-to-print registration can be achieved with a wide range of substrates and components including plastics, metals, adhesives used in label applications, paper, textiles, abrasives, flexible solar materials, RFID tags, membrane switches and other flexible circuitry, among others.
