What is the maximum size of the die cutting tool which can be used in the Paperfox cylinder die cutting machines?

Our customer often asked us that what is the maximal size of the tool which can be used on our cylinder die cutters. Now I'll try to explain this issue.

The grey rectangle (70x75cm) is the size of the machine table, but you can use for die cutting only the green rectangle inside because
  • There are 2-2cm in the left and right side where are the aluminium profiles so you can't place tool for this area
  • There are 15-15cm place at the begin and end of the table which are under the cylinder at end positions so you can't place tool for this area

So you can die cut with 5 degrees rotation the sizes marked on the following drawing:

If you place the tool with 10 degrees rotation then you can die cut maximum the following sizes:

There is a longer version of this device, the Paperfox H-2 rotary die cutting machine which can use maximum the following tools:

The Paperfox H-500A die cutter is a tabletop device and it can handle tools as in the following drawings:

Two tricks for the Paperfox tape applicators

If the paper curls up at the edges and it bumps to the knife it can cause paper jam and stop the machine. With a peace of plastic plate or a peace of wire as in the pictures you can avoid this problem.

If the adhesive band sticks on the guiding screws it can also cause jam. Put a small (1/4") drum sanding cylinder on the guiding screws so that it can turn around and the problem is solved.
