Eagle Die

Eagle Die

Eagle Dies are chemically-etched flat dies that are ideal for intricate cutting, embossing and opening features. Eagle Dies are used in various industries for outcomes like flex circuits, cartons, business forms, labels, and crafts.

Kerf Lock

Kerf Lock

Kerf Locks inserted into a Steel Rule Die secure the knife in place. (Patent Pending)

Braille

Braille

Our Braille embossing plates allow multiple Braille designs to be applied as an in-line diecutting application.

Pro-Nick Tool

Pro-Nick Tool

The Pro-Nick Tool creates consistent nicking in small waste areas without damaging the ejection rubber. The Pro-Nick Tool is convenient for on-press nicking.

Paper Pusher

Paper Pusher

Specially designed for web applications, the Paper Pusher minimizes jams caused by web irregularities. (US Patent 8,127,649 and 8,534,173)

Reverse Cutscore

Reverse Cutscore

A Reverse Cutscore is a hard, chemically etched, steel plate with a cutting edge that allows partial cutting from the reverse side of the printed piece, creating a partial tear opening.

ProEasy Emboss Registration System

ProEasy Emboss Registration System

Easily register to your artwork for in-line embossing or double pass applications. The ProEasy Emboss Registration System reduces set up time and provides accurate registration of embossing jobs.

Creasing Sheet Glider

Creasing Sheet Glider

Sheet Gliders eliminate catching of paperboard when using steel counterplates thus reducing downtime. (US Patent 7,866,718)

Steel Counterplate

Steel Counterplate

Steel Counterplates increase bend accuracy and improve scores with faster make ready and longer life.

Dynamic Stripping

Dynamic Stripping

Dynamic Stripping systems remove waste on press while improving press speeds. These systems also reduce make ready times and lessen the need to set bottom pins.

Extension Flip Adapter

Extension Flip Adapter

Have an older press? The Extension Flip Adapter enables a quick changeover from older model presses to the new Quick Lock design presses.

Drag-N-Fly

Drag-N-Fly

A combination ramp, shock absorber and sheet guide, the Drag-N-Fly reduces drag and snagging by allowing sheets to fly over the lower stripping board. (US Patent 8,061,247)

Sheet Rider

Sheet Rider

Similar to the Drag-N-Fly, the Sheet Rider increases press speeds by reducing catch points created by waste on the diecut sheet. Sheet Riders are mounted onto the lower stripping board. (Patent 7,866,718)

Quick Mount Bar

Quick Mount Bar

Quick Mount Bars provide lower stripping tools with rigid supports that can be easily removed and reused.

Bottom Pin Fixture

Bottom Pin Fixture

Pin Fixtures are ideal for areas of the die cut sheet that would require a large concentration of bottom pins. Fixtures also aid in quick set up for repeat jobs.

Blanking Sheet Glider

Blanking Sheet Glider

The Blanking Sheet Glider creates an elevated surface on the lower blanker to avoid catch areas. The Glider is ideal for large carton blanks and intricate blanker designs. (Patent 7,866,718)

Rail Fly

Rail Fly

The Rail Fly prevents snagging and improves net sheets per hour by elevating the incoming sheet above the lower blanking tool. The Rail Fly also enables a press to run narrower sheets and thinner substrates. (Patent 8,266,993)

Custom Blanking Solutions

Custom Blanking Solutions

Designed for each unique application, we offer a variety of blanking solutions including flat top, single knife and angle lock.

Cutting Plate Micro-Adjustment

Cutting Plate Micro-Adjustment

Our three skewing system increase registration accuracy. Micro-adjustment devices increase the effectiveness of counterplates and reduce carton quality issues associated with sharp scores.

Press Synchronization

Press Synchronization

Our Laser Light Alignment Tool enables accurate centerline position between the Stripper and Blanking sections of your press. (US Patent 7,793,587)

Press Upgrades
