Looks like a hand-fed platen, banned in Australia because they claimed too many fingers.

Close enough Woberto thumbs
down It is a handfed platen style die cutter, but it's also a heated foil stamping/embossing press too.

Though these can be some finger eatin sumbitches (or anything else you get between the moveable and fixed platens while it's running!) this one is fitted with hair trigger safeties which can stop the machine dead cold within about 1/4 of a stroke with the electromagnetic clutch its fitted with.

Most "old school" machines of this ilk did well to come to a stop in less than 2 full strokes, which is pretty ineffective considering the damage is done to the operator or the machine in typically less than 1 full stroke and realistically more like within 1/2 a stroke.

The problem with tryin to make anything idiot proof is that the idiots keep gettin smarter (or dumber, depending on your perspective) every day grinning
smiley I've seen people go to some incredible lengths to bypass safety equipment and blatantly ignore safe working procedures and it's always really just a matter of time before this gets 'em in the long run.

Having spent over 30yrs in different mechanical trades I've seen lots of accidents and narrowly avoided many myself. I will say one thing for sure though, there isn't a single machine that's ever been made that's worth as much as even ONE of my fingers and I'll stand right there and watch it totally deconstruct itself before I'll put myself at risk of injury over it smiling

Yeah I had a peek Woberto but I've never been all that fond of the Chinese stuff. Their casting usually stinks and their electrics are the worse than a 60s somethin Jag !

Brausse, Yawa and a few others all are cast in the same plant in China these days (hell Bobst even has a line of autoplatens made in China these days!) and pretty much just have different paint schemes except for the Brausses. Brausse has their machines shipped from the foundry to their facility in Canada and then install their own electrics, which seem to be of waaay better quality.

The Indian machines we import are hell for strong, have a higher tonnage PSI than any machine I'm aware of and we have the factory install all 60hz electrical components for the North American market. Their only weak point is their fit and finish, but people damned sure love the way they run, so .... In the 7yrs we've repped these machines I've been on exactly 1 service call which was the result of the operator failing to keep it lubricated angry
