The Marathon Punching system provides less wear, greater punch life, cleaner punched holes and easy set up.

Tools & Production exhibited at Labelexpo its line of punching equipment for label converters. 

The company's Marathon (Long Life) Punching system provides less wear, greater punch life, cleaner punched holes and easier set-up! It is the state-of-the-art in rotary male-female punching for continuous EDP, line hole punching. Fixed center distances utilized by conventional punch and die rings for proper punch penetration are now eliminated with the Marathon punch ring. And, so are punch and die gears, which required time-consuming backlash and timing adjustments.

With this concept, the punch ring is driven by the die ring and proper punch penetration is controlled by a precisely manufactured eccentric. Most rings are designed to achieve a hole to hole spacing across the web of approximately 2 1/2". Die rings can be made split or solid, and custom designs are available.

Marathon punch rings are accurately manufactured to exacting tolerances on precision CNC machines. Their design allows for easy lateral adjustment and simple re-webbing. Costly down-time is reduced since each punch now fits precisely into each die, eliminating timing adjustments and the shearing-in and peening of punches.
