Sample Cutting

Additional Information

Data Technology auto cad table DT9066: Max. sht. Size 96”x82” / max. cutting area 90”x66” Substrate: SBS / E B & C Flute / Double wall

This machine is utilized for sample making and short run cartons and displays. It works in conjunction with the Teck Storm flatbed UV printer in order to produce an affordable alternative to the offset printed labels and top sheet production which is usually reserved for longer run scenarios. Quantities can range anywhere from one to approximately 250 units before it is viable to look at offset production. Of course this always depends on the finished size of the final product.

Mount label to corrugated sheet

Additional Information

Crathern Smith FMC Label mounting machines:  Max. sht. Size 45”x66” / min. sht. Size 4”x12.5” / Glue type DEXTRIN

Substrates : E B & C Flute

These machines  are capable of mounting a full coverage label to a corrugated blank as well as a limited position spot label. In most situations they can mount a spot label to a finished RSC carton on one or two panels crossing the score if required. Although the sheet size is limited to 45“x66”, our LB – 115 machine can accept a much longer corrugated blank of approximately 120”. Both machines use dextrin cold glue which allows us to remove the label if a problem occurs. This dramatically reduces corrugated waste as the blanks can be reused. The run speeds of these machines vary based on the size of the label but will average approximately 3000 to 6000 per shift.

Die Cut mounted corrugated sheet

Additional Information

Bobst 1575 EEG Auto Platen Die Cutter: min. sht. Size 17“x24” / max. sht. Size 41“x62”

Substrates: E B & C Flute

This machine was purchased in order for us to offer matrix based die cutting services. The addition of matrix to the die cutting procedure reduces the chances of cracking on scores. It is especially helpful when the label or top sheet has a darker, heavy coverage background or when fold registration is paramount to the products end result.
