Specialties Graphic Finishers adds another high-end die cutter

One of Canada’s leading finishing and binding companies, Specialties Graphic Finishers of Toronto, has installed its fourth 40-inch die cutter – a Brausse Series machine that can handle 7,500 sheets per hour while delivering extra-high piles of sheets.

“One of its advantages is that a client might send us 50 normal-height skids, but we can ship back just 30 extra-high skids,” said Specialties Graphic Finishers’ President Norm Beange. “This reduces trucking and material handling greatly – plus, less downtime feeding the machine translates into reduced prices for our clients.”

Brausse state-of-the-art, fully automatic flatbed die-cutting and creasing machines, such as the Brausse 1050SE, feature a pneumatic push-button die-chase locking mechanism to ensure safe and operator-friendly job changes. A special gripper bar drives the chain tension wheel to keep tension constant.

Seven high-precision alloy gripper bars and a three-cam index gripper bar drive the system to ensure smooth and precise gripper-bar intermittent movement. An air-blasting nozzle bar helps with the stretching of lightweight papers. Digital cutting pressure tonnage is prominently displayed, and the 1050SE also includes maximum-pressure-limit protection.
