Magnetic Cylinder

Perfect cutting results everytime.

Overview:

Manufactured to the highest levels of quality and precision, and built to your specific converting/printing machine requirements.

Magnetic force of 9.1 N/cm² as standard with ferrite magnets. Special higher forces of up to 5 x offered upon request with use of Neodymium, rare earth magnets.

Highest possible dimensional accuracy.

Each cylinder has axial positioning lines to ensure the flexible die is mounted correctly every time.

Benefits:

  • Multi-part construction for ease of repair and extended use
  • Guaranteed long service life
  • Maximum concentricity for accurate die cutting
  • Optional hardened and ground gears available

CUTTING CYLINDER

Solid rotary tool offering long run capabilities.

Overview:

Precision engineered for excellent cutting results. Ideal for all common label applications.

Manufactured using the latest CNC technology and with hardened bearers and journals and deep cutting blades for thicker substrates.

Available in all common dimensions, with special sizes upon request.

Benefits:

  • Excellent precision
  • Designed to be reworked and resharpened
  • Robust design
  • Optional hardened and ground gears available

LONG LIFE CYLINDER

Highly annealed solid rotary tool for maximum performance.

Overview:

With all the benefits of our Standard Cylinder, but core hardened for maximum performance for challenging and abrasive materials such as metal foils or dense PVC.

The hardness and surface finish can be tailored to suit your individual material or application.

Manufactured from solid steel to prevent deflection and to ensure the highest quality of cut and finish.  Specialist steels are available upon request.

Benefits:

  • Highly annealed to give extra-long life
  • Hard wearing
  • Perfect for challenging and abrasive materials and inks
  • Optional hardened and ground gears available

GLUEX CYLINDER

Perfect for ink and adhesive-free cutting edges.

Overview:

For all high ink and adhesive materials, choose either our Standard or Long-Life Cylinder and request our GlueX option.

Proven protection against ink and adhesive build up on multi-layer and hot melt materials to protect the cutting edges.

Benefits:

  • Excellent non-stick properties
  • Prevents glue and ink deposits
  • Consistent results
  • Optional hardened and ground gears available

CROSS CUTTING CYLINDER

Precision perforations and cross cutting.

Overview:

Available for all standard machine types for perforating, kiss cutting and through cutting.

Ideal for most self-adhesive and mono-materials, in-mould labels, thin film/liners, and paperboard.

Clamping strips and counter clamps ensure cutting blades are fixed securely and replacement blades can be supplied for common designs.

Benefits:

  • Knives are easy to adjust and replace
  • Cost-effective system
  • Versatile – can be combined with perforations
  • Optional hardened and ground gears available

PRINTING CYLINDER

Maximum accuracy for outstanding print results.

Overview:

Made from rigid aluminium or steel, with low concentricity tolerances, due to our precision ground finishing process and can be supplied with a hardened anodized coating.

Axial and radial positioning lines are available upon request to ensure that the printing plate is mounted correctly. The tool can be supplied with optional hardened and polished ground gears.

Cylinders with larger dimensions are manufactured as “lightweight cylinders” by press-fitting flanges into an aluminium tube. With the identical quality of a solid print cylinder but weighing up to 75% less depending on cylinder dimensions.

Benefits:

  • Tailor-made to your specific machine manufacturer
  • Optional scratch resistant coating
  • Lightweight option available
  • Optional hardened and ground gears available

HOT STAMPING CYLINDER

Precision results on even the most delicate of patterns.

Overview:

With the latest image and text processing systems alongside excellent technical capability, our hot stamping cylinders produce precise contours and accurate reproductions of even the most intricate designs.

The smallest text and image motifs are milled onto the cylinders to a maximum depth.

A unique polishing process is used to refine the cylinders even further and ensure unparalleled, brilliant hot stamping results.

Benefits:

  • Perfect for intricate motifs
  • Precision milled for maximum depth accuracy
  • Repairable in case of damage or wear

ANVIL CYLINDER

Maximum concentricity for running accuracy.

Overview:

Manufactured from core hardened tool steel and precision engineered for perfect cutting results and long service life.

Designed with dimensional conformity to complement our range of magnetic cylinders and rotary tools with optional hardened and ground gears.

Kocher+Beck anvil cylinders are precision ground for perfect concentricity using our modern CNC machining process.
