Guidolin Girotto Srl, the leading manufacturer of standard and custom engineered high speed rotary die cutting machines offers a complete range of rotary converting systems studied and developed for the die cutting & kiss cutting of technical adhesive tapes, double sided adhesive materials, foams & plastics, rubber, labels, composite materials, electronic components, felts, abrasives, cork, textiles, paper and similar materials.

The extremely solid steel frame, modular stations, numerous options and computer control system make it versatile, fast and easy to use, assuring rapid product changeover, decreasing down time and production costs.  Our rotary die cutting systems are available in three working widths: 175mm, 250mm & 350mm, with body lengths of 1.2M, 1.7M, 2.2M and 3.0M, and operating speeds from 0-100 meters per minute.

Unlike most rotary die cutting machines on the market which are designed for one application, or require extensive time and labor to change from one job to the next, the Guidolin machine is engineered and designed for multiple applications offering increased versatility for different materials; simple or complex. The system interchangeability is the distinctive trademark of the Guidolin rotary converting platform and this unique design feature allows new systems to be installed on the machine without modifying the original set-up.

Our team of engineers reviews your application and requirements, listen to your needs, and respond to offer a more innovative die cutting & converting solution to improve your current manufacturing process.   Each machine is designed after a careful evaluation of the customer needs, the challenges of the material to be converted, therefore every machine produced is “made to order” for each client

Modular Stations Provide Endless Versatility

Wide Range of Die Cutting Capabilities

Mechanical Die Cutting

Our mechanical rotary die stations can be configured for multiple size tools, both in width and diameter, and custom stations can be designed to accept pre-existing tooling.  Micrometrical adjustment both transversally and longitudinally allow for precise positioning of the tool based on web location.  Reverse die cut stations are also available to cut material from the bottom – commonly used for creating a pull tab on adhesive and double sided adhesive materials.

The “flying knife” servo controlled sheeting & perforation unit rotates the tool faster in order to cut in the right position. In most cases, the tool is one transversal blade and it is used as a guillotine for transversal kiss cutting, total cutting or perforated cutting. Our “flying knife” module is different than a semi-rotary die cut station because normally our rotary machines are used to cut materials thicker than label stock, laminated adhesives where the liner has been changed prior to arriving at the die-cutting station.

The precision of registration or re-registration on each die cut is based on our control system coupled with a servo motor at each station.  The die cut modules can be adjusted independently of each other, allowing the cut to be changed on the fly making precise cuts even for inconsistent fiducial registration marks.  Individual servo control at each module allows for precise tension control and a different speed ratio can be set at each station – an important factor in narrow wen converting.  Fiber optical photocells and sensors are used to register printed materials, printed references or pre-die cut components obtaining the required speed to register each part allowing continual feedback.

 Laser Die Cutting offers innovative and cost-effective solutions for processing simple and complex geometries without the use of traditional hard tooling – superior part quality that cannot be replicated in the traditional die cutting process.  This technology increases design flexibility, is cost efficient with high quality through-put, minimizes material waste with very low maintenance.  Laser Technology is the ideal dieless cutting solution for just-in-time manufacturing & short-medium runs and is well suited for converting high accuracy components from flexible materials including label stock & PSA, double sided adhesives, gaskets, plastics, textiles, difficult abrasive materials & even aggressive adhesive materials like VHB that typically adhere to the cutting blade.

The working parameters are managed by an industrial HMI Touchscreen which can store up to 500 different jobs to guarantee quick & easy changeover. The special software, with immediate interface, grants a high feeding accuracy to reduce material waste and dramatically increase production throughput.

High structural quality, accurate die cutting precision, silence, versatility and excellent relation between quality and price are the best representation of our rotary die cutting machines in the world.
