Freeman Schwabe Die Cutting Presses 

Gaskets are usually produced from a flat material e.g. on a sheet or roll such as paper, rubber, silicone, cork, felt, foam, plastic, rubber.
Die Cutting uses a die to cut and “punch” out gaskets from sheets or rolls of material.

Freeman Schwabe supplies flat bed die cutting machine presses, which are capable of “kiss cutting” gaskets, and supplies the roll stands to feed the material to the press and die.

Key Features for Cutting Gaskets 

– Special rack and pinion head-speed control system allows quick head receding speed and adjustable receding distance to produce cycle times ranging from 3 to 4 seconds per die cut.

– This system also ensures the receding head starts and stops smoothly at both ends, eliminating any shock or vibration.

– The press can be run in the Auto 1 or Auto 2 operating mode, which means the photo cell commands the cutting press to start cutting after the operator reaches in to position material once or twice.

Key Benefits

– Accurate and consistent die cutting time after time
– Allows faster cycle times which saves operator movement, thereby reducing operator fatigue.
– Unique balancing system which ensures clean even die cutting and reducing wear on cutting die surfaces.
