  • Adhesive build up on Guillotine blade

    Hello all,

    We are running a job that is printed on pressure sensitive vinyl. When we cut it on our Guillotine cutter, after a couple of lifts, we get a large amount of adhesive build up on the front and back of the blade. Anyone have the silver bullet for this?

    Thanks in advance,
    SK

    Have you tried some Food Grade Silicon spray on the blade between cuts

      We have not, we will, thanks Mr. Pasty Thighs (I smile when I type that). The adhesive that builds up on the back of the blade the major issue.

        You can clean the adhesive on the back and front of the blade using some press wash and cotton wipes.

            Yes, silicone spray is the best option, your consumable supplier should be able to supply a product called "Printers Silicone" but if they are food labels then check that the product is food grade.

              Print Embellishment Goes
              Straight To The Bottom Line

              InfoTrends reported that interviews with more than 100 print customers demonstrated an appetite and willingness to pay premiums of 24% to 89% for special effects, over CMYK-only printing. They also indicated embellishment could apply to a significant portion of their work. Embellishment options can include hot foil stamping, spot gloss UV, embossing, debossing, letterpress, diecut shapes, lamination, duplex, triplex, gold foil, silver foil, copper foil, white foil, black foil, clear foil, etching, and laser cutting techniques.
