CHIESA CNC Traveling Head Die Cutting Systems

CHIESA’s CNC Traveling Head Die Cutting Systems with 2 or 3 controlled axes are cutting robots, granting power, precision, speed & with the powerful advanced nesting software, maximize material utilization. The Chiesa F1 EDI CNC Traveling Head Press incorporates and electrically servo driven cutting head without the use of hydraulics. This ‘GREEN’ technology reduces power consumption up to 50%, eliminates all the maintenance associated with hydraulic components, and improves overall accuracy, repeatability & production throughout. In addition, to improve overall productivity & material yields, the press is equipped with either a 4 or 14 position automatic tool changing device.

Chiesa pioneered automatic die cutting and developed the first belt fed die cutting press in the late 1980’s & patented the electrically driven (no hydraulics) CNC automatic cutting press in 2006. They are considered the market leader for industrial die cutting applications – particularly for the abrasive, gasket & automotive sectors. The long experience gained in the automatic cutting industry through thousands of installations and the steady dialog with our customers helped in creating a reliable, safe, user friendly performing product.

These die cutting systems are extremely efficient. The robust structure and the quality of mechanical components allow cutting speeds beyond 100 punches per minute, with a precision of a few hundredth of a millimeter, which allows parts to be kept as close as possible, increasing the material savings & cutting belt life.

The cutting power, up to 110 tons, is kept steady even for extremely long production runs allowing these machines to cut hard materials of high thickness, in single or multiple layers, and use multiple dies or dies with long blade development.

The software allows to calculate, with considerable precision, for each material consumption and time required (thus labor cost) in order to make accurate simulations of the cutting cost, enabling better production planning and more precise offers to customers.
