Automated Traveling Head Die Cutter

EDP-W Press Machine

The EDP-W automated traveling head system represents the highest automated system which allows converters to die cut various types of materials and desired shapes. The feeding of material is automatic and is managed by a transportation conveyor running together with a pinch and grab system. This machine can handle materials with a wide range of weights and different thicknesses which can be processed in multiple layers. The EDP-W has a wide range of configurable cutting forces and cutting head surfaces allowing converters to take on a wide range of applications.
