RotoMetrics augments flexible die product range

September 29, 2011

The AccuStar flexible die is introduced along with the TextureFlex flexible die and the AccuStrike anvil roll.

The introduction at Labelexpo Europe of the AccuStar range of flexible cutting dies has increased the portfolio of RotoMetrics. The laser hardened flexible die incorporates the technologies of both RotoMetrics and of Gerhardt, which RotoMetrics acquired earlier this year.

“The life span of the Accustar is phenomenal,” said Cory Gegg, marketing manager for RotoMetrics. “Everything good in the flexible die world is in this die.” The company says that the die offers the highest accuracy and the most exacting tolerances available “because they are precision finished and laser hardened to master the most difficult applications, such as extensible film substrates and abrasive thermal transfer material. We have combined our 100-plus years of experience to bring you the ultimate in flexible die performance.” RotoMetrics’ Flex Premier coating is applied to the die for use on thermal transfer materials.

Another unveiling was the TextureFlex flexible die, which utilizes a soft anvil roll surface to create embossed textures on paper substrates in a wide variety of patterns.

RotoMetrics also introduced its AccuStrike Anvil, which features Dual Adjust Technology. The anvil allows press operators to adjust blade clearance on press with extreme precision. Highly sensitive controls enable adjustment of bearers independently or together for unparalleled control over die strike on various liner thicknesses.
