A Revolutionary Air Sheet Transport System
The RQS-V machine was developed to meet the requirements of the printing industry. This high-performance sheeter combines a precise cross cutting unit with a revolutionary “Air-Stream” transport system. The unique “Air-Stream” technology safely transports sheets onto the stack. A transport by means of airflow, with no mechanical contact, is ideal for sensitive surfaces.
With speeds of 400 m/min., the Questec RQS-V is the world’s fastest variable rotary sheeter. It cuts lightweight paper, plastic film, beer labels and more at stepless variable cut-off lengths.
The sheeter can transport and cut single-layer thin printing papers starting from 30 gsm. For statically charged plastic film, transportation can start from 80 µm at a cut-off length of 400 mm - 1.050 mm. This high-performance sheeter offers maximum flexibility, competitive technology, and high speeds.
RQS-V Rotary Sheeter Applications
Questec’s crosscutting and contact-free sheet transport solutions provide versatile production options in our rotary sheeters. It is ideal for small batches and quick order changes and handles various lightweight paper and film grades, at high speeds and accuracy.
The sheeter can standalone or integrate into any offset, gravure, flexographic, or digital web-fed press. As a standalone sheeter, it is ideal for specialty paper mills and converters or as plastic film cutting machine for plastic film converters.
The inline configuration of the sheeter produces printed sheets at full press speed at single pass. This eliminates speed reductions, intermediate handling, and waste. It combines the full speed advantage of a variable repeat web-fed press with size flexibility.
Our RQS-V variable rotary sheeter from Questec efficiently and flexibly converts various substrates for growing markets.
