At present, die-cutting technology is widely used in the manufacturing of corrugated cartons and corrugated cartons, and there are many kinds of die-cutting methods, such as flattening, circular flattening, circular flattening and so on. Among these ways, flat die cutting machine is the most common. Flat die cutting machine is simple to make and easy to operate. It is used in both large enterprises and small and medium enterprises.
Manufacturing Technology of Flat Die Cutting Machine
While choosing die-cutting technology, die-cutting technology should be determined first. Lithographic die cutting process: die cutting plate design - drawing - cutting wood plate - Installation knife, thread - pasting sponge - proofing - drum line - die cutting operation. The die-cutting process specification mainly includes the effective working range of the die-cutting machine, the structure design of the die-cutting box, the drawing method of the drawings, the production of the die-cutting plate and the key points of the die-cutting production and operation, etc. With the development of packaging machinery industry, large-scale formalities die-cutting equipment has been produced, which exceeds the full specification. Enterprises should formulate die-cutting process according to production practice and ability.
According to the characteristics of packaging products and the weight and size of packaging contents, the design box type and die-cutting layout are determined. First of all, we should choose the corrugated board materials reasonably. We should also consider the whole process of commodity circulation and the length, width and height of cartons in a certain proportion. Sometimes we should even consider the size suitable for containers. The structure design of die-cutting process is rather complicated. Besides the above problems, the type and box type of die-cutting plate should be determined according to the characteristics of the product and the working ability of the equipment. In the design of cartons, seven types of cartons identified in the International Cardboard Box Rules should be selected as far as possible. This rule simplifies the packaging instructions of trade exchanges and is the universal international code in the world.
After the type of carton is determined, when drawing die-cutting layout, designers are required to ensure that the layout size is accurate and standardized. Uniform drawings should be used with clear and neat handwriting. Graphics can be used for the selection and structure development of production basis. Stereo drawings should be drawn to illustrate special requirements.

Production of Die Cutting Plate
Drawing die-cutting layout is the first key link in die-cutting plate making. The drawing designed by computer proofing machine is more accurate, and it can effectively ensure the size of die-cutting plate. In order to complete the process of die-cutting plate making, the steel knife and wire should be inserted into the plank according to the layout provided by the designer.
According to the manufacturing size and pattern of die-cutting layout, computer proofing and drawing directly on the wood plate can also be used. Choose good quality die-cutting plate, flat surface, easy to process, to ensure that the insertion of die-cutting plate knife, line size is accurate. The thickness of the die-cutting plate is generally 12-18 mm. The die-cutting single corrugated board can be thicker, and the double corrugated board can be thinner.
In order to make a die-cutting plate, the first step is to cut the die-cutting plate. Whether manual or laser cutting is used, the cutting line is required to be straight, and the width of the cutting groove is equal to the thickness of the knife and line installed here. In order to ensure that the die-cutting plate does not loose and fall off, a number of "bridge-crossing" should be set aside at the appropriate location. The length of bridge-crossing is determined by the size of the layout, and the general length is 10 mm.
Cut the steel knife and wire into corresponding length and shape and insert them into the cutting groove according to the cutting knife and line position. The dimension error of the product after fabrication and die cutting is less than 0.5mm.
After the die-cutting plate is processed, the die-cutting plate should be proofed on the die-cutting machine. If there are no problems, the die-cutting plate can be put into production formally, but in the proofing and production process, the following problems are prone to occur.
Large area or partial pinching is impermeable. In order to compensate for the height of the die cutter, a thin layer of paper should be padded on the corresponding part of the back of the cutting board or die cutting plate. Do not damage the blade by padding more paper and too much pressure.
Local indentation line position fracture. Due to the dryness of cardboard, poor paper quality, or improper use of indentation line, the phenomenon of fracturing at indentation often occurs. In this case, three measures can be taken. One is to use corrugated board with moisture content of 14 +2%. The second is to replace the steel wire, especially the die-cutting double corrugated board, which can use the "big head line". Thirdly, the drum line is pasted on the cutting board. The depth and width of the drum line are 1.2-1.4 mm and 3-5 mm respectively.
The position and dimension of die cutting are not accurate. In the production process, the quality of stamping products should be checked at any time. If the size and printing position are not on time, the die cutting rules should be adjusted in time. Because of the number of die cutting, the position of knife and line deviates and should be replaced in time.
