Die-cutting 4.0.

Maximum visibility in packaging production.

Performance tracking and good tool management in packaging production are difficult. This is because the die-cutting process - in contrast to the printing process - is currently still very analog. Digital connection is missing. Die-cutting machine, tool and user are not connected. If data on the tool and its performance is to be collected, this is often only possible offline and manually with a great deal of effort. The result is often data that is not reliable. The situation is similar for tool management: loss of time in finding production tools, problems in the structured organization of tool maintenance as well as no documented information about key performance indicators of the tool are the order of the day.

The future: Connect|M. A special, newly developed software combined with various hardware components. Cameras, sensors and QR codes provide a connection between tool, die-cutting machine and operator in your production. With this digital connection, we provide you with performance tracking and efficient tool management at its finest. This enables you to identify trends and potential and, thanks to the key figures determined, you have a perfect basis for your decisions on all aspects of the die-cutting process. For maximum transparency in packaging production.

Performance tracking.
CONNECT|M's performance tracking option ensures that key performance indicators are determined quickly and easily at the push of a button. This gives you an overview of the most important key figures for each of your tools. In this way, the comparison of different tools with each other is just as possible as the comparison of one and the same tool on different machines. Even the objective performance comparison of several production sites is easy with CONNECT|M. The results of the performance tracking are impressive: based on these key figures, you can benchmark, identify trends, uncover potentials and thus increase the performance of your packaging production step by step. At each of your locations.

Tool management.
Tool management is also a significant component for efficient packaging production. After all, the tool must be quickly located, maintenance must be ensured, and re-ordering should be possible quickly and efficiently. The definition of key performance indicators for each individual tool also helps to ensure efficient use. In other words, tool availability must function perfectly. Your advantage: long searches as well as time-consuming unplanned rework in your tool preparation are a thing of the past. Simply transport your production tool to the die-cutting machine and start producing packaging.

CONNECT|M - for maximum transparency in packaging production.

Simply productive.

A hotfoiling die for packaging embellishment must be perfectly positioned. Whether flat or fluted, the positioning must match the layout. Unfortunately, in practice this positioning is a very time-consuming process.

Our solution: the thinplate system. On this special steel plate, you can adjust and archive the embossing position during hotfoiling. This saves you valuable set-up time for each repeat job.
