Rotary Converting for Adaptability
The need for the highest yields and production rates calls for rotary die cutting that delivers flexibility and speed. Preco’s Rotary Converting Platform™ has more material access capability on each model to ensure the fullest use of the press. Four standard widths handle most narrow web applications, with custom formats that are built for unique work.
The RCP™ handles a variety of packing films and base substrates, and accommodate all popular rotary tools, from machines dies to mag cylinders and flexible dies, as well as vacuum transfer anvils for special placement techniques.
A healthy variety of optional accessories allows Preco RCPs to adjust for changes in the customer’s job requirements, including unique registration capabilities that outperform typical industry benchmarks.

Features & Benefits
Press operators generally run out of spindles before processing stations when performing the work layout. Preco provides an abundance of capacity.
Servomotors provide both station tension and tapered web tension to encourage good, adjustable part registration as well as balanced non-curling of web layers.
Preco makes it simple and easy to attach a Preco-made device—or better still—an appliance that your company has created for a special purpose.
Product venting and other packaging needs demand the greatest expertise possible for consistent results. Preco’s long-standing laser production experience ensures true compatibility, working alongside the RCP’s hard-tool applications. Through-cutting, marking, scoring, kiss cutting and full ablation are all performed, with an availability of many power range components. The Preco FlashLite is flexible and may be placed at any station position.
A first-time user or an experience technician will find the touch-screen monitor to be logical and understandable. All electrical components can be entered and monitored, including ongoing trending of registration accuracy and roll material status.
The RCP leaves behind the need for extra wires that get in the way of tooling, a web or a safety curtain. Our exclusive registration setup needs only the count of the gear teeth and the pattern on the die circumference to achieve great register. No homing devices!
Idler rollers need to be placed on a rotary anywhere that will improve the process. Our moveable backplane mounting plates provide the greatest availability of roller placement of any manufacturer.
Preco supplies three lengths of articulated idler rollers either to deflect away to a certain direction, or to get the web as close as possible to rotary tooling—a huge benefit to the requirement for the slightest of adjustment.
An active web guide needs the ability to adjust its receiving angle to accept an incoming web. Three adjustments ensure a correct web approach angle and balance the guide.
Preco complies with ANSI and CE standards, using light curtains that provide a simple, non-invasive solution. Special projects may require more. Preco works with you to protect the job site.
