Web fed flatbed die
cutting machine

The FDC-510 is an ideal solution for converting conventional or digitally printed products which require cutting, creasing and braille embossing, combining the best of sheet fed flatbed die cutting technology with a cutting edge servo driven constant tension web transport system.

With a maximum speed of 10,000 impressions per hour, the ability to nest products up to five across and the benefit of being able to reconfigure the machine for a wide range of carton sizes and forms without specialist tooling ensures that downtime and substrate wastage is kept to a minimum.

Product Case Study

Edale’s FDC-510 adds significant increase in capacity.

Background


Nigerian based, Masterstroke Packages Ltd, have been in business since 1989, fast became leaders in the field of packaging and security printing with over 300 employees working across two plants on a 24/7 production schedule. As business continued to grow rapidly the need for a new converting machine arose.

Solution

Producing a wide range of applications for a broad sector – package printing and labels for the health, beauty and food sector, Masterstroke required a new converting line to sit alongside their five other Edale printing machines.

Benefits

The arrival of the FDC-510 has added a significant increase in capacity. Retrofitted to an existing Edale press the machine runs inline creating a single pass folding carton machine with the capabilities to cut, crease and braille emboss – with the latter feature being particularly important for the healthcare sector.


“Our production facility operates 24 hours a day to meet customer demands, we witnessed a huge change in the packaging needs of the country and so decided to purchase the FDC-510. It fits inline with our existing Edale and we are thrilled not only with the quality but the quantity and efficiency of the equipment.”
