Die Cutter Handling System

Increased Productivity from Your Die Cutter Handing System

The well-proven NAS Nalle Automation Systems C-RUSH System automatically removes sidewalls from high-speed, vertical die-cutters (blankers) and robotically places the sidewalls into work-in-progress containers. The turn-key system uses a single, uniquely designed robotic end-of-arm tool (EOAT) to automatically unload a multilane die-cutter before placing each stack of sidewalls into a tote.

Lane handling and stacking configuration includes interleaving tier sheets and stacking patterns engineered to each cup’s specifications. The C-RUSH System automatically changes its configuration with no operator intervention when changing dies.


Benefits of Our Packaging Solutions


Operators are not required to have robotic experience or need a high level of training to operate

C-RUSH System

The C-RUSH System is capable of handling 2,000,000 21oz sidewalls per day or the equivalent of over 20 tons of sidewall handling. This reduces soft tissue damage while permitting employees to be redeployed to other,less physically-demanding jobs

Designed for 24/7 operation


C-RUSH makes die-cutters more productive by reducing die cutter downtime or needing to slow down production due to personnel fatigue

Machinery Features:

Designed for collaborative use by allowing the operator to interface with the diecutter via pausing and resuming robot automation

Capable of servicing a 5 cavity die with the die-cutter running at 425 strokes/minute

Single EOAT handles cup sizes from 12 oz to 30 oz

Die-cutter output is managed by a “Die-Cutter Output Lane Assembly” (DOLA) designed specifically for each die

Automated conveyor system transfers empty totes into load position after full totes are automatically discharged

Operator safeguards include fencing and personnel laser-based area sensors providing CAT 3 safety

Sidewall picking and placing parameters are contained within each Smart-DOLATM via “recipes”

Automatic recovery after E-STOP clear acknowledgement

Optional interface with PMC HS800 die-cutter allows system to regulate the speed of the die-cutter

Major system components are integrated on a steel weldment permitting rapid installation

Conveyor system is designed with automated guided vehicle (AGV) capabilities
