Successful Round-Cornered Products

Following these five tips will help your Challenge Machinery customers avoid many mistakes that commonly occur when working with round-cornering equipment:

  • Keep the knife and die sharp and in good alignment. Dull knife and other poor adjustments lead to irregular cuts. Carefully sharpen knives with a 35-degree bevel and finely hone them (#32 micro cut or better) to remove coarseness and burrs.
  • To ensure good corners, always firmly place paper against the left and back guides.
  • Are you experiencing unusual noises and irregular action when you run your machine? A maintenance check is probably due. Have your machine checked by a qualified person.
  • Exercise care when handling and changing the knives.
  • NEVER leave the machine running unattended!

Die-cut, Kiss-cut, Crease, Slit, Perforate, Hole Punch and Round Corners

Meeting the Growing Demand for Short-Run Product

NEW Rotary Die-Cut System for Digital & Offset Print! Horizon RD-4055 Die-Cut System

New Horizon RD-4055 can die-cut, kiss-cut, crease, slit, perforate, hole punch, and round corner with various substrates.


Standard is pleased to announce the New Horizon RD-4055 Rotary Die Cutter. It is designed to meet the growing demand for short-run die-cut product, with the ability to die-cut, crease, perforate, slit hole punch, and round corner in one process for digital and offset printed sheets. This system features easy change-over and simple operation. Both setup and control can be done through an intuitive touchscreen that displays easy-to-understand graphical illustrations. Vacuum belt feeding enables superior feeding. And, an ultrasonic sensor is used for double-feed detection on a wide range of substrates.

Die-cutting and Kiss-cutting can also be performed at the same time, which makes the RD-4055 ideal for producing stickers and labels.

Feeds, die-cuts, and separates in one pass at speeds up to 6,000 cycles/hour.

Creasing can be achieved to avoid image cracking making it suitable for boxes, pocket folders, and greeting cards which require an additional folding process after die-cutting. Lastly, a “Repeat Register” function allows multiple-up applications from a single-up die to minimize costs. Even run up to five repeats in a single pass! Now that’s a die cutter!

The New RD-4055 offers flexibility across a wide range of products including labels, pop-up mailers, packaging, folders, stickers and more! VIEW MORE
