As a company that believes in ‘quality without compromise’, we are always seeking to find new ways to improve our processes, whether this be through continued staff training and development, or investment in new technologies to increase efficiency and allow us to provide a wider range of bespoke products for our customers.
To help increase our efficiency in manufacturing a wide range of components for multiple industrial sectors, CB Frost have recently invested in a new high-speed die cutting press for thorough cutting and kiss cutting.
The range of applications for our new machine include but are not limited to:
- Individually die-cut gaskets, seals and washers
- Kiss-cut and supply on rolls, self-adhesive sponge products (as above) with scrap web automatically removed leaving components ready to issue
With an eye on increasing production and improving the speed and efficiency of our cutting processes, we decided to invest in this high-speed die cutting press. The new machine has been manufactured in Taiwan and is currently in the process of being shipped to our premises in Birmingham.
The new cutting machine is designed to operate at speeds of up to 100 strokes per minute, allowing us to considerably increase our cutting capacity, whilst maintaining pin point accuracy. The press will cut a wide range of materials in different thicknesses. The high-quality engineering and rigid construction combined with depth of precision will allow us to produce components with a clean finish that are ready to be packed and sent to customers immediately. As a result of the accuracy of the machine, scrap material is also much reduced, which will create considerable savings in the long term.
