– MICROGRIND® DIE CUT ACCURACY SYSTEM

PRECISION, CONSISTENCY, RELIABILITY

For a higher level of precision, consistency and repeatability, SUN Automation Group’s MicroGrind ® Die Cut Accuracy System hits the mark. For years, machine designers attempted to trim the anvil with several different methods. While those methods were effective, none have been as successful as MicroGrind. Sun’s MicroGrind system uses a tungsten carbide grinding roll to grind the anvil flat and true. This inventive idea allows the surface to be treated in micro amounts (0.001” or 0.025 mm) automatically with grinding precision every 10,000 impressions without operator intervention.

  • Consistent cutting & creasing surface throughout the life of the anvil blankets while reducing the need for blanket rotation
  • Ensures that sheets are cut to a consistent dimension. The first die cut board is cut as precise as the last
  • Systems maintains itself without operator intervention or down-time
  • Purchase Options
  • Available for both top and bottom anvil applications
  • Upgrade existing machines
  • Option available by all major global manufacturers
