Improving Speed & Efficiency and Safety of Die Cutting Manufacturing Operations.

Edited Logo

Schwabe USA supplies dedicated cutting die handling equipment and innovative side die  loading facility incorporated into the Schwabe press, to improve the speed, efficiency and safety of your manufacturing operation.

A well organized die handling procedure for transfer, storage, retrieval and changeover of dies is the core of an efficient die cutting operation of non metallic materials.

Steel Rule Die Rack – Transfer, Storage and Retrieval equipment includes well balanced transfer carts.

Die Cutting Board to be loaded on to Die Vac systems and Cut by schwabe press

These carts allow a single worker slide individual dies in and out of the vertical die rack and on & off roller tables.
The height of the Die Rack must accommodate the width of the dies (usually either 66” or 74”), and the depth must accommodate the lengths of the dies.  Die Racks usually contain either 10 die boards or 20 die boards.
The length of the die rackwill acco, which for handling reasons will not exceed 21’ (6.5m). 
A full size (74” x 21’), die loaded with up to 20 layers of material usually weighs about 350-450 lbs. Actual weight will depend on the amount of steel used in the cavities.

Ball Roller Tables

Cutting Press Software – Measures Hydraulic Pressure and Fluid Temperature

Untitled 2

Freeman Schwabe has a broad range of proprietary software to complement each machine for an even better performance, efficiency to meet you manufacturing / converting application needs.

Freeman Schwabe cutting press includes proprietary software that provides data on hydraulic pressure and the hydraulic fluid temperature on the controls touch screen. 

Measures Hydraulic Pressure - 8612759_orig

Operators can then see the actual cutting pressure`s percentage while running a particular program. 
– the maximum pressure for that particular die or program can be stored
– and if the cutting pressure percentage exceeds the maximum allowable pressure, the operator will be alerted onscreen

This machine software promotes operational efficiency by identifying die issues such as a dull die, or the wrong material being produced for that program, or a worn cutting surface. 

Many customers also like to keep track of their hydraulic fluid temperature. This is essential when operating hydraulic die cutting equipment in warmer or heated environments. 

As the temperature of the oil exceeds the manufacturer`s recommendations or the hydraulic valve manufacturer`s recommendations, viscosity will be affected
• This can cause pressure drops within the hydraulic system which can also affect the cutting pressure. The seals and o-rings within the hydraulic cylinders and valves can prematurely start to disintegrate due to overheating. 
• Carbon deposits from the heated oil will also start to build up within these components and inside the hydraulic tank over long periods of time when running the equipment in extreme environments. 
• This leads to downtime due to repairs of the hydraulic system.

We can also retrofit your older Freeman Schwabe presses with the latest software programs.

Cutting Press Software – Monitors the Need for a New Cutting Belt

Untitled 2

When using a cutting belt as the cutting surface for your manufacturing operation we recommend using the Freeman Schwabe proprietary software to monitor the life of the belt and the need for it’s replacement.

The Belt Life Monitor software helps predict the expected future downtime of a necessary cutting belt change.

When a cutting belt needs to be replaced, we recommend using outside contractor with the necessary equipment and expertise to fashion a seamless joint of a cutting belt during its installation.

Belt Life Monitor - 6594603_orig

With a new machine press from Freeman Schwabe the Belt Life Monitor will reflect any test cutting done by qualified Freeman Schwabe representatives prior to the required factory acceptance tests.
– our qualified installation experts will install and train the necessary customer employees on new equipment.
proper die settings and program training will be provided
the belt life will vary according to our customer`s products and choice of die rule being used for each particular product.
when the first belt change is required, the customer will be able to access the Belt Life Monitor counter in the operator`s touch screen.
Belt Life Monitor counter is password protected so that only the appointed personnel can access it and reset it accordingly.
The counter`s information should be noted to accurately predict the next belt change needed, according to the customer`s production schedule.
