I'm curious if anyone is using laser die cutters for sheet to sheet. We are looking at a few different kind of die cutters and are intrigued by the lasers equipment. We especially like the PaperOne 3500 from SEI Laser, but haven't heard any real world experiences.
I looked into a laser die cutter a few years ago from another vendor. The unit had to be re-calibrated by a tech for different sheet sizes and thicknesses and was priced at almost $300,000 USD. You could get a rotary die cutter for $60k to $100k USD if you need high speed and have repeat jobs to justify the cost of the dies. Cut tables that use a CNC knife can be bought for under as little as $30k USD.
