A comprehensive suite of products engineered to minimize equipment damage and increase your efficiency.

Typically, for metal-to-metal applications, a finished die cut product moves with the liner. Without a material movement solution, the waste moves up the matrix and can potentially cause build-up and, ultimately, equipment damage. Nothing inhibits productivity more than a machine that needs repairs, so RotoMetrics innovated custom die solutions that remove cut-outs from the substrate or carrier based on your unique specifications.

We offer three types of material movement solutions that each provide unique benefits to your diecutting process:

Air: Compressed air blows away waste or die cut part from your die
Vacuum: Picks up waste from the web and pulls it through your die journal
Pin: Pin Eject pushes pieces away from the die

Material Movement

RD Vacuum Boxes

More efficient converting and prevent waste particle buildup


  • Captures pieces of waste blown out of your web
  • Easily attaches to your press
  • Prevents waste particles from collecting on anvil roll or in gears, thus minimizing your downtime
Material Movement

Material Movement: Multi-Port Air Eject

Targeted air blast for precise control solution


  • Uses compressed air and/or vacuum to optimize the removal of material
  • Can concentrate air/vacuum at a specific row of cavities cutting
  • Can angle target blast of air/vacuum for most precise directional blast
  • Can be used with a combination of compressed air and vacuum to select a die cut from the cavity and release it later in the die’s rotation
