Die-cutting is one of our most important processes and an area of our greatest advances. Our in-house conversation facility includes high-speed rotary die-cutting equipment with innovative capabilities and flatbed presses enabling unlimited flexibility to convert nearly all our advanced materials into precision components.
Our advanced manufacturing and conversion facility enable the production of a vast range of die-cut components using customised liner configurations and presentation styles.
By looking beyond the initial drawings, we carefully analyse and consider all aspects of the application focusing on how we can most effectively configure the format to improve efficiency and reduce costs.

For LSE Substrates
Inline Corona Treatment
Surface treatments modify the surface of low surface energy (LSE) substrates during the die-cutting process to allow application of pressure-sensitive adhesive (PSA) to materials which have an inherent LSE that were previously incompatible with PSA.
Inline Corona Treatment increases the surface energy dyne level of LSE materials such as foams, composites, acrylics, films and PP by up to 3 times.
This highly effective treatment allows the lamination of conventional PSA’s onto LSE substrates that would otherwise not be available, without any reduction in manufacturing speeds, eliminating the need for high cost chemical surface preparation and specialist adhesives.
Using this surface modification during the die cutting process and prior to bonding, coating, laminating or sealing broadens the range of adhesive tapes and substrates that are compatible with LSE materials previously unsuitable for the same application.
Particularly important during the manufacture of medical components, devices and equipment, enabling Material Scientists to utilise cleaner materials and helping to replace substrates such as vinyl and latex. With greater design flexibility, we are able to support our clients in the development of tomorrows technology.
The safety and wellbeing of our employees during the COVID-19 pandemic is paramount and where possible, our staff are working safely from home. Where this is not possible for our production team, who are manufacturing vital healthcare products, we have introduced additional measures to increase hygiene and safety standards.
