SC 100

Multi-purpose cutting system

The SC 100 strip cutter is used for cutting plastic sheets for the production of cards. Different settings makes it possible to divide sheets into strips or halves according to requirement, and to separate away bleed margins, etc.. The machine can also be used for the cutting of other documents like vehicle registrations.

Short description

Exact cuts for the highest demands

According to the most modern technological demands, the SC 100 can accomplish a range of different cutting and trimming tasks in which plastic sheets must be carefully divided or their edges more exactly be cut. With the process of the production of plastic cards, this precise system ensures that the ready cut parts can be further processed within strict tolerances and can finally lead to a valuable high-quality end product.


For standard foils of card / passport production

Final products

  • Sheet halves
  • Strips in the desired final format
  • Cut plastic sheets

Sheet supply

After the program has been chosen on the operator-friendly terminal, at least 800 sheets (according to thickness) are inserted and automatically transported by the system to the first cutting unit. Depending on the sheet strength, considerably more sheets can filled up. The choice of job, and the speed of the transport and of the guillotines can be selected on the touch screen.

Cutting units

Before the first cutting process in the lateral direction, the sheets are automatically transported to an alignment station which checks the exact positioning of the products by means of optical sensors. This happens with the help of the registration marks or the sheet edges. An electronic guillotine cuts the material and cut leftovers are automatically caught in a waste container. After the onward transport to the second cutting unit, a position check occurs once more by means of optical sensors. The second guillotine divides the material in the longitudinal direction afterwards. Here, also, cut leftovers are automatically collected. Depending to the application, both cutting units can carry out in each case one or several cuts.
