“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.
