High-Graphic Die Cutters
High-end direct flexographic print capabilities in up to a 4-color process with vacuum sheet transfer and multiple spot colors enables a competitive, high-end product that is comparable to that of a litho label. Dryers are installed on each print unit and there is option for overprint varnish.
Flexo Folder Gluers
We produce simple and complex jumbo, midsize, and small cartons as well as a variety of die-cut packaging items. They can be glued in-line or are converted on our flexo folder gluers.
Our cutting-edge BOBST ExpertFold 230 specialty folder-gluer allows both short and long runs of a variety of corrugated packaging solutions including auto-lock bottom and 4-corner boxes. As our most recent investment, this machine represents our continual commitment to production and quality.
Platen Die Cutter
Our flatbed die cutter creates specialty products such as Litho-labeled risers, bases, trays, and intricate die cuts. Tolerances are much tighter for a flatbed die cutter which allows us to create unique designs for our customers. Flatbed die cutters have the capability to use matrix and other rule combinations that are limited or unavailable with rotary die cutters.
We are partners in a sheet feed facility, Pinnacle Corrugated, in Landis, North Carolina. Our custom ordered board is produced daily along with access to board testing equipment.
