Ultra-compact, cost-effective unit for self-adhesive lamination, semi-rotary die-cutting, and length slitting of label web widths up to 350mm. As digital label printing continues to grow, label-printing houses are realizing the need for all-inclusive digital printing systems that provide value-adding features for producing fully finished labels. The unit is ideal as a converter for a small digital press or as a backup to an existing finishing line.
The DC350Nano is the most compact unit in GM’s series of label-finishing machines. It Is built on the same rock-solid die-cut unit as our biggest DC350 unit. A solid 20mm metal frame ensures a vibration-free basis for the four large servo motors that drive the web. The DC350Nano can be set up as an inline extension to a digital label press, allowing the web to continue directly into the converter from the digital press or as a standard offline unit. With semi-rotary die cutting, lamination, and a genuine pneumatic knife box with crush knives, it offers all you need for short-run label production. If required, the DC350Nano can work as a “Blanco” label die cutter as well.
The DC350Nano has all you need to make labels. Lamination, die-cut, slit & rewind as standard. Optional GM VPN GATEWAY, inline buffer module, Gap Master Kocher+Beck, advanced stripping roller system, and extra Mark Reader.
Very easy and quick print-to-cut registration – no station movement or mechanical setup required. An optional mark reader placed between the web guide and die-cut station determines the repeat minimizing the waste.
Adjustable repeat lengths from 2-22”; line speeds up to 45 m/min semi-rotary and 130 m/min full-rotary.
The large graphical touch display shows the web-up and all functions clearly in the local language.
Ensures accurate processing over a wide range of substrates.
This compact design will fit into any print shop, measuring only 1,6 x 1,6 x 1,7 m.
The GM VPN GATEWAY enables remote service and support of GM machines through a unified, uninterrupted, and secured internet connection. It establishes access to the Internet through the firewall of the existing wired network infrastructure to provide remote access for on-demand, real-time servicing of GM equipment.
Inline or offline
DC350Nano can be set-up as an inline extension to a digital label press, allowing the web to continue directly into the converter from the digital press or as a standard offline unit.
Solid as a rock
DC350Nano is built with the same smoothness in design and craftsmanship as our high-end DC350Flex series.
The compact design in the DC350Nano ensures a very quick print-to-cut registration, hence minimum waste.
Works inline with hotfoil
DC350Nano produces highly embellished labels with the use of hot stamping and embossing.

In January the company invested in a DC350NANO finishing unit from GM. The process from installation and training to running in full production was a very smooth transition.
A new customer, Nemprint A/S of Aarhus, Denmark, has acquired a DC350NANO, adding capacity in order to meet increasing customer demands.
US label manufacturer Rival Branding has invested in a GM DC330NANO converting unit as an all-in-one finishing solution for its Epson SurePress L-4533 digital inkjet label press. The new GM semi-rotary die-cutting converter has replaced a web-fed plotter die-cutter and significantly improved efficiency and quality.
Based in Lenexa, Kansas, Rival Branding is a digital-only printing company, which produces custom labels and other printed products for many different clients, including craft breweries, CBD and cannabis companies, candle manufacturers, bath and body product manufacturers, and many more. It was established in 2016 and specializes in supporting startup brands with high-quality labels at low cost and low minimum orders.
The ultra-compact DC330NANO is a cost-effective solution for lamination, die-cutting, and slitting. The machine is ideal for converting labels printed on lower-volume digital presses or as a backup to an existing finishing line and can be configured to run either inline or offline.
Rival Branding made the decision to buy the DC330NANO after an online demonstration. Qualities such as ease of use and versatility were important factors when choosing the machine. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the company has been producing clean seal stickers for use in hotels, properties, and resorts, so faster time to market has been of the essence.
Owner Trent Marquardt said: “The DC330NANO is just awesome and it is such an easy machine to use. Jobs that previously took us two days to convert on our old plotter die cutter can now be finished in just 20 minutes or less.”
“We are very happy to be partnering with Rival Branding as they strive to serve their customers with faster delivery and higher quality labels,” commented GM CEO Uffe Nielsen. “The Nano is a popular ultra-compact unit and it is the perfect machine for them. In these challenging times, having equipment that you can rely on is absolutely vital.”
