LGT 1613 – The evolution of die cutting machines

Die Cutting and CNC

Die cutting resembles the technique of baking cookies with cookie cutters. The material is fed into or through a machine in sheet or strip form, and the die or dies are then lowered using force to cut the part’s shape.

Die cutting machines work with CNC, meaning that a Computer Numerical Control is used to send information to the machine through its incorporated chip. A dedicated software allows you to program the machine and is used to schedule the desired jobs using the respective tools.

LGT 1613

The new LGT from Delta is an outstanding development in the evolution of die cutting machines, as it now comes with new features and performance.

LGT can be used to produce samples, cut rubber, pertinax counter formers, steel plates, female extractors, bas-reliefs and similar.

What is new?

✔️ Thanks to its new frame and a new generation brushless motor, it guarantees a rapid axis speed up to 70mt / min.

✔️ Its high-power spindle (32k rpm or 50k rpm) is able to guarantee a 24/7 production.

✔️ Two sensors (Tool Length PreSetting and Nano Sensor XYZ) guarantee maximum precision on each material.

Thus, LGT suits anyone who wants to prompt ROI on a multifunctional router!

Further Technical Specifications

LGT is not a light machine, its weight may vary from 2800 Kg up to 3700 Kg depending on the different options you may need, together with brushless motors.

It comes with a routing head of 32.000 RPM 7,5 KW and an auto toll changer which can switch to 12 different positions and a tool length for automatic measurement.

In standard configuration can run:

  • Pertinax – the machine calibration and the overall efficiency of the machine double, making it suitable for large orders.
  • Stripping Dies – female stripping, top and bottom side for accurate job and finishing.

LGT routing area may vary accordingly to the following three options or customizable as you desire:

  • 1650 x 1300 MM
  • 2100 x 1300 MM
  • 2500 x 1700 MM

In addition to the basic package, you may want to upgrade your LGT with further options.

This may include:

•    Steel Counter Pack – Counter plates make creases and shaped apertures precisely in line with the die cutting assembly. Our pack includes 50K spindles and mist lubrification which ensures high speed on such counter plates.

•    Embossing Pack – Do you need to engrave? Our embossing pack with our advanced 3D software created exactly for such purpose may be the solution!

•    Rubber Pack – Cutting up to 50 MM, this rubber includes pneumatic tangential axis suitable for ejection rubber and other materials.

•    Sample Making Pack – This includes tangential axis suitable for creasing, mylar or carton.

How Delta Diemaking Is Innovating Die Cutting

About Die Cutting

Die cutting is a manufacturing process that uses specialized machinery and tooling to transform starting material into custom shapes and designs through cutting, forming and shearing.

Die cutting process is suitable for a wide range of materials as it is highly versatile and customizable.

Currently, this market is valued at USD 1246.6 million and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 1.40% by 2030 globally.1

Material Applications

Die cutting process is suitable for a wide range of materials as it is highly versatile and customizable. In particular, it is used in the processing of cardboard and paperboard, foam, plastic, rubber, and fabrics.2

The ability to customize each tool and choose from a variety of material options makes the process ideal for manufacturing tasks in myriad industries.

The main industrial applications focus on converting common materials into useful products.

Die Cutting Processes

There are several types of die cutting processes, including flatbed die cutting, rotary die cutting, and digital die cutting.

The flatbed die cutting process is suitable for processing thicker materials, producing larger parts, and handling small orders or small production runs.

The rotary die-cutting process, on the other hand, is used for applications that require high precision and highly accurate designs, as well as for large production runs.

The digital punching process is suitable for low-shear material processing applications that require fast turnaround times and low costs with high precision.

Each process variant offers advantages in terms of manufacturing applications, but also limitations in terms of material properties, tolerances, production output, costs, etc.3

Flatbed Process

The flatbed die cutting process is capable of processing materials in both sheet and roll form. It can also apply higher punching pressure than other punching processes and can cut through soft and thin materials as well as hard and thick materials.4

The process uses a flatbed stamping press and custom steel scales to convert the material into custom shapes and designs.

The advantages of this particular process that set it apart from others are numerous. These include:

  • Suitability for larger and thicker materials
  • Sharper and crisper cuts
  • Minimal material deformation
  • Small order or short-run production
  • Decreased lead times for multiple parts
  • Lower tooling costs

These advantages make the flatbed die cutter the best process for custom die cutting of paper, fabrics, fibers, paper, plastics, metal and rubber, as well as cutting foam, film, composites and laminates.

Delta Diemaking and Flatbed Process – Easy Sample

We are proud to introduce our new die cutting plotter called Easy Sample, which represents the new generation of flatbed plotters: it is faster, more efficient and more accurate than its predecessor SML 1316 and its competitors, ensuring continuity of production.

Easy Sample is accessible from all sides thanks to its simple structure and has an extremely robust traverse bridge, so it is able to combine accessories for different types of machining.

Some of the most revolutionary features of Easy Sample are the possibility to carry out different types of machining without changing tools, the possibility to choose between pneumatic or electric oscillations as required and the spindle for machining foam and plastics.

In addition, it has an integrated camera to detect pin markers, mylar and everything needed for diemakers and printers.

Easy Sample is ideal for cutting gaskets, rubber, POP, folded and corrugated cardboard, expanded materials that can be machined with a knife or milling machine, laser for marking and Mylar.

An infinite number of configurations make EasySample a configurable plotter for various industries, die makers, printers, automotive manufacturers, leather companies.

EASY SAMPLE – A new generation of die cutting machinery: fast, modular and customisable for every need.

Have you ever asked yourself the origin of the process of crafting and printing on paper or cardboard? Well, die-cutting is one of the oldest manufacturing processes.

The process of die cutting has a long history. Indeed, it originated around the mid-1800s from the shoe industry in order to cut leather more efficiently.  

Only in the early 1900s did further innovations allow the cutting of different shapes and sizes. This opened the doors to the mass production of products like plastic, metal, tubing and food items.

Nowadays die cutting machines are extremely versatile and complex and most of all they are digitised. In particular in recent years the use of cutting plotters, or die-cut machines, has become popular for paper and cardboard crafts.

Delta Diemaking

Delta Diemaking originated in 2015 from an innovative idea of several experts in the die-cutting and paper converting industry, as a manufacturing company of CNC die-cutting machines with an international presence.

Delta Diemaking was subsequently acquired by Quattro.Zero srl, a company already present on the market with CNC machinery in the mechanical sector, looking to expand its market share.

Innovation and commitment are the pillars of our corporate philosophy. Our young team has both experience and future-oriented craftsmanship,
