Flexible Dies feature crack and chip resistant coatings.

Press Release Summary:

Designed for die cutting thermal transfer label stock, Diamond coated flexible dies are resistant to corrosion. Black Diamond coatin on flexible dies reduces die lifting in small, tight corner die cutting applications, including die cutting stamps. Coatings create low friction which allows flexible dies to be used with aggressive adhesives without gumming up dies, facilitating flexible printing operations.

Bunting® Introduces New Flexible Die Coatings

NEWTON, KS - Bunting® Magnetics Co. has launched two new coatings to be used with our Flexible Die products. These options, Diamond and Black Diamond, increase the hardness of our flexible dies to a level not measured by the world-renown Rockwell Scale for Hardness. Also, the new coatings now give our customers three choices to chose from because our standard process is to 100% chemically nickel harden our dies.

"These coatings allow our flexible dies to run four times longer than ordinary dies," stated Mike Wilks, Bunting® General Manager for our Flexible Die Division. "Also, this new coating process makes our dies highly resistant to cracking and chipping which helps quadruple the life of the die. This expanded product offering allows Bunting® to offer our customers the best combination of magnetic printing cylinders and flexible dies available."

Our Diamond branded coating is the perfect choice for die cutting thermal transfer label stock. It makes our dies very resistant to corrosion. Our Black Diamond coating is the ideal choice for reducing die lifting. It increases the performance for small, tight corner die cutting applications including die cutting stamps. The Black Diamond coating creates lower friction which allows a flexible die to be used with aggressive adhesives without gumming up the dies. Thus, it gives a printing operation more flexibility to offer their customers.
