Many applications require ‘matched’ tooling for enhanced production performance on press. Midway's specialized tooling sets address a wide variety of manufacturing challenges.
We’ve developed several innovations using matched set tooling:
Single-station folding carton tooling, with cutting and creasing performed in a single die station, eliminates the need for cut to crease registration, lowering tooling cost, set up time, and material waste.
Dual function die sets allow cutting from the top and bottom of the web in a single die station. This eliminates registration requirements between stations, as well as the common problem of “wander” of the unseen undercutting tool.
Vacuum anvils (matched to a cutting die) enable precise ‘island placement’ capability.
Stripping pin anvils (matched to a cutting die) enable extremely effective slug (window) removal in folding carton tooling, and can also be used to remove other scrap and matrix waste at high speeds.
- Phase adjustable gearing enables precise registration of upper and lower tools. Simple on-press adjustment is possible without
