Newton, KS (July 2012)—At Labelexpo Americas 2012 in Chicago, September 11-13, Bunting Magnetics Co.—producer of precision magnetic products for the worldwide printing, automobile, plastics, food, and electronics industries—will feature its magnetic spiral cylinders. These precision, patent pending cylinders—designed specifically to securely hold magnetic dies—assure semi-rotary die cutter operators that the smaller magnetic dies often used to cut digitally printed labels will adhere firmly to the cylinder.
Discussing the concept, Bunting Magnetics Co. Printing Group Product Manager Michael Wilks said: “Digital label converters focus on short runs and quick turnaround, and thus jobs must be finished more quickly than generally possible with conventional rotary dies. The semi-rotary die cutters complementing digital presses at many converters, however, often use magnetic dies which do not wrap fully around the cylinder. By their nature, these dies may not lie flat, particularly if the die edge falls on a nonmagnetic cylinder area. Bunting Magnetic Spiral Cylinders, with their unique spiral magnetic construction, offer a ready solution to this problem. Because the magnets are laid out in a spiral, rather than a straight line, die edges are always held firmly in place. Bunting will be in Labelexpo Americas 2012 booth 347 to demonstrate how these cylinders benefit both digital and flexographic converters.”
