Rotoflex Tooling (a division of Rotoflex International), of Mississauga, ON, Canada, is now manufacturing magnetic cylinders.

“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,” says Earl Warren, general manager.

“Magnetic cylinders fit easily into existing die stations — providing a cost-effective alternative to solid die replacement,” adds Warren. “Using strong magnets that are strategically placed around the circumference of the cylinder, a flexible die (or plate) can be used to diecut various substrates. This saves setup time and money, as a flexible plate is less expensive than a solid rotary die and can be produced quickly.”

Rotoflex Tooling has been manufacturing various rotary cutting dies, die stations and printing cylinders for more than 30 years.
