A flexible magnetic die (or plate) can be used to die cut various substrates and saves set-up time and money as a flexible plate is less expensive than a solid rotary die.
Rotoflex Tooling (a division of Rotoflex International) now manufactures magnetic cylinders in Canada General manager of Rotoflex Tooling, Earl Warren, said: "With the increased demand for flexible dies, our customers need the shortest possible lead times.
Companies just can’t wait weeks for a magnetic cylinder – they need it yesterday.
We now manufacture the magnetic cylinders in Canada – resulting in faster service, reduced downtime, and better value.
* Magnetic die – Warren said: "Magnetic cylinders fit easily into existing die stations – providing a cost-effective alternative to solid die replacement.
Using strong magnets that are strategically placed around the circumference of the cylinder, a flexible magnetic die (or plate) can be used to die cut various substrates.
This technique saves not just set-up time, but also saves money as a flexible plate is less expensive than a solid rotary die and can be produced quickly".
