Many rotary converters got their start cutting simple pressure sensitive labels. Though label makers continue to produce simple designs in very high volume, some jobs involve a higher level of complexity, and thus require a higher degree of die cutting expertise. When you encounter label projects with special challenges, Midway provides unique solutions:
Waste removal systems – for jobs where you need to efficiently and cost effectively eliminate slugs or web scrap using stripping pins on a matched anvil, Pulse Air® eject, or vacuum tooling.
Special folds or creases – for jobs with unique performance and aesthetic requirements, that can benefit from male-female die sets with simple on-press adjustment capability.
Perforation – for jobs where perforated sections may assist in folding operations including "invisible" perforation unique to Midway.
Multi-die setups – for jobs requiring alignment from station to station using registration marks.
High durability tool steel dies – for converting difficult materials such as recycled board, abrasive stocks or inks, or metalized materials such as thermal transfer.
Your challenging label applications may benefit from expertise Midway has gained in non-label markets. We’re here to help you with any projects where we can add value. Call us… let’s talk about it!
