ETI Converting – US patent for Pellicut equipment

The Pellicut rotary die-cut unit for the processing of extremely thin release liners

CANADA • The company received a patent for its “Apparatus and method for cutting facestock” immediately prior to drupe. This reinforced their promotion of the Pellicut rotary die-cut unit for the processing of extremely thin release liners (12 to 18 micron).

This technology ensures that the die will not mark the liner during the cutting process and that there will be no breaks on labeling machines. Pellicut can die-cut PS material at a speed of 500 fpm (150 m/min) and uses a standard flexible magnetic die. The W anti-deflection system avoids pressure cutting variations and reduces risks of die-cutting marks on the liner. An equalizer system corrects the thickness inconsistency of the magnetic plate presently sold on the market. Moreover, the cutting pressure is not sensitive to heat variations in the long run and during a continuous usage.
