RotoMetrics launches new flexible die portfolio

The new portfolio combines the operational processes of RotoMetrics, Electro Optic and MLC Brazil.

Maxcess has launched a new RotoMetrics flexible die portfolio that combines the manufacturing and operational processes of RotoMetrics, Electro Optic and MLC Brazil to offer the right technology for every application.

The new portfolio consists of the re-engineered improved value and performance SmartFlex series for paper and film, the increased versatility and longevity of the Prime Series for a wider variety of Paper and Film applications, the improved accuracy and longevity of Dura Series for complex film and abrasive applications.

In addition, RotoMetrics also offers Specialty Dies like GoldLine Special for thin film liner applications and MicroBlade for small and intricate spacing applications. All dies are engineered to work with any press or converting line.

‘We spent a significant amount of time asking our customers the biggest converting challenges they were trying to solve,’ noted Kiki Chosid, regional vice president of sales at Maxcess. ‘And, our customers told us they needed flexible dies specifically engineered for today’s materials, including thinner liners, abrasive materials and inks and the growing use of small blade spaces and intricate patterns, as well as for the sheet fed rotary die cutting markets.

‘We automated and enhanced our manufacturing processes to better manufacture flexible dies to improve blade consistency to ensure reliability and eliminate potential die strike issues. We streamlined our durability and chroming processes to improve flexible die longevity converting abrasive materials and inks.

According to the company, enhanced automation minimizes deviations in total plate height and blade flat resulting in up to 30 percent improvement in manufacturing consistency for better die performance against the anvil.
