Bunting Magnetics introduced a new cylinder for use in the embossing of holographic films, and is now in full production of flexible magnetic dies at its new facility in Newton, KS, USA.
Mike Wilks, general manager of the flexible die division, said that the the HoLo magnetic embossing cylinder is designed to magnetically hold holographic films or plates and perform at temperatures in excess of 400º F. “It is particularly well suited for narrow and wide film applications from which a wide range of films are produced within the industry. During recent customer use, there was a 50 percent production increase with the HoLo and it allowed for quicker changes to take place.”
“This expansion of our product line perfectly complements our existing magnetic cylinder products,” said Robert J. Bunting, president. “This was a strategic decision to accentuate the strength and quality of our overall product offering to the printing industry. Our X-treme series diecutting cylinders are recognized as the best in the world and we are convinced that our X-treme flexible dies will reach the same level of performance.”
