Guidolin Girotto GD EL Series

Flat-Bed Die Cutting Press
GD EL Series



The Guidolin Girotto models 151 & 301 EL automatic electro-mechanical flat-bed die cutting machines are the latest versions of the successful GD 151 D & 301 D lines.  The new EL version keeps its solid frame structure, mechanical fly-wheel operation with micro-metric single cylinder adjustment for precise cutting tolerance & noise-less operation, yet represents some improvements related to the hardware and software, including the new TFT 4” color touchscreen.  The rewinds are electro-mechanical with gear motors and mechanical friction with manual regulation which allows for accurate tension control.

The 151 EL automatic kiss cutting machine develops 5 mechanical tons of cutting power, has a cutting platen of 200mm x 200mm, a fixed stroke of 30mm, with speeds ranging from 30-120 strokes per minute.  The 301 EL automatic kiss cutting press develops 10 mechanical tons of cutting power, has a cutting platen of 320mm x 320mm, a fixed stroke of 40mm, with speeds ranging from 30-120 strokes per minute.  They are economically priced, entry level narrow web die cutting presses for converters of neutral & printed labels, laminated foams & textiles, adhesives & double sided adhesives tapes – ideal for short to medium runs – designed to meet the demands of quick change-over, high quality, and ever-evolving manufacturing environments.

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


The main sectors for our machinery include the following: abrasives, automotive, aerospace, composites, electronics, gaskets, labels, medical, packaging, plastics, & self-adhesive tapes.

In the automotive sector, our customers are direct suppliers of: Alfa Romeo, Audi, BMW, Ferrari, Fiat, Ford, Honda, Mercedes, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Peugeot, Renault, Skoda, Toyota and Volkswagon.  In the field of adhesive and double sided adhesive tapes, we work on a global scale with converters of 3M, Tesa, Avery Dennison, Lohmann, Nitto Denko, Scapa and many others.

Our products are developed in close cooperation with our clients starting from the design stage, to reflect the specific needs of their requirements, to increase productivity and optimize material utilization and labor.

Points of Strength

Operating Features Guidolin Girotto Benefits
Mechanically Operated Flywheel & camshaft driven allows the energy from the power source to be supplied at a constant rate throughout the operation. Thus allowing higher cutting power, precision, less set-up and noise- less operation.
Single Cylinder Adjustment Micrometric single cylinder adjustment (+/- .01mm) guarantees perfect platen parallelism & eliminates the problems associated with 4-post hydraulically operated presses – i.e. die board shimming, hydraulic leaks, seal wear & loss of pressure.
Quick Die Change Plate support cutting knife with guides that are dove tailed @ 60° for a quick and easy change of the cutting die. Cutting dies can be changed without removing the material from the machine during the production cycle.
Single Nip Roll Adjustment A single (centered) nip roll adjustment allows for the nip rolls to be set perfectly parallel during the lamination process greatly reducing the time associated during set-up with traditional dual mechanical stop adjustments (left & right).
Modular Design A variety of options are available to automate and customize the system to suit a wide variety of converting requirements. Most options can be added in the future.
Industrial PLC Industrial PLC can store up to 400 jobs for quick set-up. Operational controls can be customized for special/custom converting applications.
Vision System – Cut to Print Various vision (registration) systems are availabile utilizing an optical photocell for reading a notch, printed references (clear, dark, color) & holograms. Registration systems are available for one (X), two (X-Y) and three (X-Y-Z) axes in a variety of accuracy levels.
Knock-Out / Part Expulsion A wide variety of knock out stations are available with registration on the X,Y & Z axes. Centers or scrap can be removed via pneumatic expulsion, vaccum, air etc.. And finished, total-cut parts, can be stacked on a table or conveyor.
Guillotine Cutting Systems Automatic guillotine cutting system assembled on the machine for the transversal cut, equipped with motorized feeding rolls, friction & adjustable on the axes. Equipped on a table with a slide to move out of the way when running roll-roll applications.
In-Line Slitting Systems A variety of in-line slitting systems are available including razor blade, blade counterblade (scissor), & pressure cut (Score) with regulation on the axes. Slitting units can be set-up for total cutting or kiss-cutting applications.
Automatic Sheet Loading Automatic sheet loading device with vacuum pick and place system equipped with a hydraulic lift and optical photocell to register the sheet location.
In-Line Printing A wide variety of in-line printing systems are available for printing on various substrates.
Custom Converting Solutions Custom solutions available for the most challenging converting applications & requirements.
