ETI Converting Equipment Patents Die-Cutter

BOUCHERVILLE, QC, CANADA | ETI Converting Equipment has received a patent for its Pellicut equipment, said to die-cut very thin release liners (12–18 microns). 

Company says this high-speed rotary die-cut unit is well suited to self-adhesive label printers, who understand the advantages generated by this technology, said to include the following:

  • Avoids die-cutting mark problems on paper and film liners completely
  • Reduces material costs
  • Results in half the amount of liner waste
  • Lowers shipping costs
  • Lowers rewinding time since there are more labels per roll

The technology guarantees that the die will not mark the liner during the die- cutting process and that there will be no breaks on labeling machines.

This equipment can die-cut p-s material at a speed of 500 fpm (150 mpm) and uses a standard flexible magnetic die. Reportedly, the W anti-deflection system avoids pressure cutting variations and reduces risks of die-cutting marks on the liner; an equalizer system corrects thickness inconsistency; and the cutting pressure is not sensitive to heat variations in the long run and during continuous usage.

Patent information is as follows: Apparatus and Method for cutting facestock. UNITED STATES PATENT NUMBER 9,289,912 B2.

The company says its equipment will be presented at drupa 2016, May 31–June 10, in Düsseldorf, Germany.
