Here is some safety information related to using auto-platen die cutter.

Hazards and Risks:

The use of an auto-platen die cutter involves several hazards and risks, which include:

  • Moving parts: The machine has moving parts such as the platen, cutting plate, and delivery system that can cause injuries to operators and others around the machine.
  • Electrical hazards: The machine is powered by electricity, which poses a risk of electric shock or electrocution if not handled properly.
  • Struck by hazards: The machine may eject materials or parts, which can strike workers and cause injuries.
  • Entanglement hazards: Workers can become entangled with the machine’s moving parts, resulting in serious injuries or even death.
  • Noise hazards: The machine produces high noise levels that can damage workers’ hearing if adequate protection is not worn.
  • Manual handling hazards: The machine’s components can be heavy and awkward to handle, causing musculoskeletal injuries if not lifted or moved correctly.


The following precautions must be taken when using an auto-platen die cutter to ensure worker safety:

  • Only authorised personnel should operate the machine after receiving training on its use, and they must follow the manufacturer’s instructions and safe work procedures.
  • Before operating the machine, workers must inspect it for any damage, loose or missing parts, and any other hazards that may cause injuries.
  • Workers must wear appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), including safety glasses, hearing protection, gloves, and safety shoes.
  • Workers must not wear loose-fitting clothing or jewellery that could become entangled with the machine’s moving parts.
  • Workers must ensure that the machine is correctly grounded and connected to a suitable power supply to avoid electrical hazards.
  • Workers must not exceed the machine’s rated capacity, and they must use appropriate lifting equipment to handle heavy or bulky materials or components.
  • Workers must never attempt to reach into the machine’s moving parts while it is in operation, and they must use the machine’s emergency stop button in case of an emergency.
  • Workers must follow safe work procedures when clearing jams, replacing blades or parts, or performing maintenance tasks.
  • Workers must clean the machine after use, ensuring that any debris or waste is disposed of appropriately.

Emergency Procedures:

In case of an emergency, workers must follow the following emergency procedures:

  • Stop the machine immediately by pressing the emergency stop button.
  • Inform other workers in the area and the supervisor of the emergency.
  • Administer first aid if required and call for medical assistance if necessary.
  • Do not attempt to remove any parts of the machine that may have caused the emergency until a qualified technician has inspected the machine and cleared it for use.

Gary’s Safety Tips

Hey everyone, it’s your safety guy Gary here, and today I want to talk to you about something super important – safety procedures when working with an auto-platen die cutter.

Now, I know what you’re thinking – “Gary, why are you talking about safety procedures? That’s not very exciting.” But let me tell you, my friends, safety is always exciting because it means you get to go home to your loved ones at the end of the day without any injuries or accidents.

So, let’s dive right into it. First and foremost, before you even start using the auto-platen die cutter, make sure you are properly trained on how to use it. This means reading the manual thoroughly, attending any training sessions provided by your employer, and practicing on a mock setup before using the real machine.

Once you’re ready to use the machine, make sure you’re wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). This includes things like safety glasses, steel-toed boots, and gloves. Not only will this protect you from any flying debris, but it will also help prevent any cuts or injuries from the machine itself.

Now, let’s talk about the machine itself. The auto-platen die cutter can be a very dangerous piece of equipment if not used properly, so it’s important to always follow these safety procedures:

  1. Keep the area around the machine clear: Make sure there are no loose objects or debris around the machine that could get caught in it or cause a tripping hazard.
  2. Lockout/tag-out: Before performing any maintenance or cleaning on the machine, make sure it’s properly locked out/tagged out to prevent it from accidentally turning on.
  3. Never reach into the machine while it’s running: This may seem obvious, but it’s important to never stick your hand or any other object into the machine while it’s running. Always wait until the machine has come to a complete stop before performing any adjustments or maintenance.
  4. Use the proper tools: Always use the proper tools and equipment when making adjustments or performing maintenance on the machine. Using the wrong tool could cause damage to the machine or result in an injury.
  5. Use caution when loading and unloading material: When loading and unloading material onto the machine, always use caution and make sure your hands are clear of any moving parts.
  6. Know the emergency stop procedure: Make sure you know how to quickly and safely shut down the machine in case of an emergency.

These are just a few of the many safety procedures you should follow when working with an auto-platen die cutter. Remember, safety should always be your top priority when working with any type of machinery.

Now, I know some of you may be thinking, “Gary, all of these safety procedures sound like they’ll slow me down and make my work take longer.” But let me tell you, my friends, the time you’ll save by not getting injured or causing damage to the machine will far outweigh any extra time it takes to follow these procedures.

In fact, following these safety procedures can actually improve your overall productivity by creating a safer and more efficient work environment.

So, in conclusion, when it comes to working with an auto-platen die cutter, always make sure you’re properly trained, wearing the appropriate PPE, and following all of the necessary safety procedures. By doing so, you’ll not only be protecting yourself, but also your coworkers and the machine itself.

Thanks for tuning in, and until next time, stay safe and stay productive.
