Masking kits

Masking kits in the aerospace, automotive & electronic industry are used to cover or protect specific areas during painting or coating processes.

Plotter Prototype

Using a plotter for prototyping work prior to tooling offers several advantages.

Speed
Plotters can quickly produce prototypes, allowing for rapid iteration and testing of designs. Cost-effectiveness: Prototyping with a plotter is often more affordable than traditional methods like CNC machining, especially for low-volume production runs.

Flexibility
Plotters can work with a variety of materials, including paper, vinyl, and thin plastics, foams and various tapes providing flexibility in material choice for prototyping.

Accuracy
Plotter technology allows for precise cutting and scoring, ensuring that prototypes closely match design specifications.

Visualisation
Prototypes produced by a plotter offer a tangible representation of the design, facilitating better communication and understanding among team members and stakeholders. Iterative design: Since plotter-produced prototypes can be quickly and easily modified, they support an iterative design process, allowing for refinement and improvement before committing to expensive tooling. Overall, using a plotter for prototyping offers a cost-effective, efficient, and flexible way to test and refine designs before moving forward with production tooling.

Flatbed cutting processes

Operating Mechanism
In flat bed die cutting machines, a flat surface (the bed) holds the material in place while a stationary die presses down to cut the material into the desired shape.

Precision
Flatbed die cutting machines offer high precision and are suitable for intricate designs and detailed cuts.

Versatility
They can handle various materials, including paper, cardboard, foam, plastic, and thin metals. Setup Time: Changing dies in flat bed machines can be time-consuming, making them more suitable for smaller production runs with fewer design variations.

Cost
Flatbed die cutting machines are often more affordable to purchase and maintain compared to rotary die cutting machines.

Benefits of Flat Bed Die Cutting Machines
Ideal for small to medium-sized production runs. Excellent precision for intricate designs. Versatile, capable of handling a wide range of materials.

Rotary cutting processes

Operating Mechanism
Rotary die cutting machines use cylindrical dies mounted on a rotating cylinder to cut materials as they pass through the machine.

Speed
Rotary die cutting machines are faster than flatbed machines, making them more suitable for high-volume production runs.

Efficiency
They excel at cutting materials in continuous rolls, offering high throughput and efficiency. Setup Time: Changing dies in rotary machines is quicker than in flat bed machines, making them more suitable for large production runs with multiple design variations. Material Handling: Rotary die cutting machines are especially effective for cutting thin, flexible materials like paper, film, and foil.

Benefits of Rotary Die Cutting Machines
High-speed production capabilities. Efficient for continuous material processing. Quick die changeover for large production runs. In summary, the choice between flat bed and rotary die cutting machines depends on factors such as production volume, material type, design complexity, and cost considerations. Flatbed machines offer precision and versatility for smaller runs and intricate designs, while rotary machines excel in high-speed, high-volume production environments with continuous material processing needs.

Fully automatic tape slitting machines operate with minimal manual intervention. They are equipped with programmable controls, sensors, and servo motors to automate the various stages of the slitting process, increasing efficiency, consistency, and productivity. Overall, fully automatic tape slitting machines offer a streamlined and efficient solution for precision cutting of tapes, meeting the demands of modern manufacturing and packaging operations.

Material sheeting service

An automatic sheeting machine is a piece of equipment used to precisely cut large rolls of flexible materials, such as paper, plastic film, foil, fabric, or non-woven materials, into individual sheets of specific sizes. These machines are commonly used in industries like printing, packaging, paper converting, and textile manufacturing.

Automatic sheeting machines can process a wide range of flexible materials, allowing manufacturers to adapt to changing production needs and accommodate different materials and sheet sizes with ease.

Automating the sheeting process reduces the need for manual labour, freeing up operators to focus on other tasks and improving overall operational efficiency. Overall, automatic sheeting machines play a vital role in modern manufacturing environments by providing efficient, precise, and versatile solutions for cutting large rolls of flexible materials into individual sheets.

Laminating service

Multiple lamination tapes, also known as multilayered adhesive tapes, offer several benefits depending on their specific construction and application. Here are some common advantages:

Enhanced Strength
Multiple lamination tapes often consist of several layers of different materials laminated together. This construction can result in tapes with enhanced strength and durability compared to single-layer tapes. The combination of materials can offer superior tear resistance, tensile strength, and impact resistance.

Improved Adhesion
Each layer in a multilayer tape may serve a different purpose, such as providing adhesion to different surfaces or enhancing bonding strength. This can result in improved adhesion to a wide variety of substrates, including difficult-to-bond materials like plastics, metals, and low-energy surfaces.

Improved Performance
The combination of different materials in multiple lamination tapes can result in improved overall performance compared to single-layer tapes. For example, a tape may feature a strong adhesive layer for initial bonding, a reinforcing layer for strength, and a protective layer for weather resistance. This comprehensive design can lead to better long-term performance and reliability.

Overall, multiple lamination tapes offer a range of benefits including strength, adhesion, customisation, versatility, performance, cost-effectiveness, quality, and environmental considerations, making them valuable solutions for various industrial and commercial applications.

Prototype and die cut facility

Rotary die cutting is a manufacturing process used to cut or shape materials, typically in large volumes. It involves the use of a cylindrical rotating cutting die or tool to precisely cut or shape materials. The material is then passed through the machine, and the rotating die, which is often customised for the specific shape or pattern needed and cuts through the material as it moves. Flatbed die cutting is another manufacturing process used to cut, shape, or convert various materials, but it differs from rotary die cutting in its approach.

Instead of a cylindrical rotating die, flatbed die cutting uses a flatbed press or machine with a stationary flat die. The material to be cut or shaped is placed on the flat surface of the machine, and the die is aligned precisely with the material.

When the material and die are aligned correctly, the press or machine exerts pressure to cut or shape the material. The die presses down onto the material, cutting it into the desired shape or pattern.

Flatbed die cutting is versatile and suitable for a wide range of materials, including paper, cardboard, foam, fabric, leather, and even thicker materials like wood or composite materials. It can handle thicker materials compared to rotary die cutting.

Flatbed die cutting offers precise cutting and is well-suited for intricate designs, custom shapes, and smaller production runs where each piece may require unique cutting patterns.
