Rotoflex Tooling Offers Magnetic Cylinders
SCHAUMBURG, Ill.—Rotoflex Tooling (a division of Rotoflex International) now manufactures magnetic cylinders in Canada. “With the increased demand for flexible dies, our customers need the shortest possible lead times. Companies just can’t wait weeks for a magnetic cylinder—they need it yesterday. We now manufacture the magnetic cylinders in Canada, resulting in faster service, reduced downtime, and better value,” said Earl Warren, general manager, Rotoflex Tooling.
“Magnetic cylinders fit easily into existing die stations, providing a cost-effective alternative to solid die replacement,”continued Warren. “Using strong magnets that are strategically placed around the circumference of the cylinder, a flexible magnetic die (or plate) can be used to diecut various substrates. This technique saves not just set-up time, but also saves money as a flexible plate is less expensive than a solid rotary die and can be produced quickly.”
