DUNMORE Expands Foil Converting Capabilities to Meet the Rising Demand for Coated and Laminated Foils
DUNMORE Corporation announces the expansion of its foil manufacturing capabilities. DUNMORE can now offer coating and laminating services for a more complete range of foil materials types, foil thicknesses and hardnesses.
Bristol, PA — DUNMORE Corporation announces the expansion of its foil coating and laminating processing to include a wider range of metal foils. DUNMORE has been coating and laminating aluminum foils for almost a decade, and recently has expanded its capability to handle copper, brass and stainless foils. In addition to expanding its capability into multiple foil types, DUNMORE can now coat and laminate most degrees of hardness from annealed to H19 temper in relative thicknesses from 0.36 mil to 8 mil. Details about DUNMORE's foil converting capabilities can be found at http://www.dunmore.com/services/foil-converter.html.
DUNMORE Corporation has been coating, metalizing and laminating specialty materials for over 45 years and has continually expanded its contract manufacturing service offerings to meet the evolving needs of customers. In many cases, customers use DUNMORE’s product development and engineering department as an extension of their own. This recent expansion to a more complete range of foil converting services is no different. Many of the programs are proprietary, but DUNMORE is seeing a rise in developments specifically calling for foil or instances where the customer’s product requires unique functionality, such as barrier, shielding or strength that make foil the most advantageous substrate. DUNMORE’s ability to bring these projects from concept to commercialization is its key competitive advantage.
“The formal product development process pairs DUNMORE’s technical team with our customers' counterparts to speed the time to market by clearly defining product requirements upfront and providing real time feedback to ensure all milestones are met,” according to Tom Rimel, Executive VP of Operations and R&D. He adds, “Our scale up process includes lab-to-pilot and pilot-to-production scale-ups, providing essential outputs and validation while minimizing the total cost of development.”
DUNMORE’s added capabilities and formal development and scale up processes make the company an ideal development partner for companies that have product requirements in hand, or an ideal contract manufacturer for customers that have a complete specification and design for their product but lack the process capability or the capacity to get it done in-house.
