BERHALTER die-cutting where profitability and efficiency meet
Berhalter – Switzerland's leading manufacturer of high-performance die-cutting machines – is presenting a patented technology at upakovka exclusively to cut in-mold labels and polyester labels.
High-tech die-cutting on a low budget Berhalter is presenting the new die-cutting tool concept for in-mold labels (IML) and polyester labels that offers the advantages of favourable tool cost in combination with short lead times. The Berhalter LABEL-light™ punching tool is a patented concept combining the improvements of the flat-bed die-cutting such as unique print-to-die registration and perfect handling properties. The costs for a LABEL-light™ punching tool is up to 70% lower compared to a traditional punching tool even allowing a label contour correction of +/- 0.5 mm. Further, there is no need for re-grinding a LABEL-light™ tool – the cutting components can be easily exchanged by the operators in order to continue production immediately. As materials become more complex and more sensitive, and quality demands grow stricter, a perfect interplay between die-cutting machines and die-cutting tools is more important than ever before. Reducing cost means also using thinner in-mold labelling films. Berhalter aims to be the leading company worldwide by die-cutting and processing IML labels as thin as 40µ and even thinner films. Other important aspects include the stack accuracy of labels as well as the static charge on plastic films. Berhalter die-cutting machines are characterized for their non-contact die-cutting process, which is ideal for the avoidance of static charges. Additional anti-static devices are included in the die-cutting process in order to guarantee the greatest possible process security. Additional operations, such as the finishing of a surface texture, the insertion of a micro-perforation (for applications in the deep-drawn/blow-molding area), pre-cut holes (for injection nozzles) or die-cut holes for technical functions (centering aids, windows) are very easy to achieve on Berhalter die-cutting systems.
The mark of flexibility Using the Berhalter die-cutting system, it is possible to realise any marketing solution without having to impose restrictions in terms of the choice and design of the packaging. For us in-mold labelling is not a temporary fashion, but the result of continuous development for almost 25 years. Berhalter is known worldwide for flexible, efficient and innovative die-cutting solutions. 55 years of experience and continuous quality development have allowed us to grow into a dynamic company in the packaging materials industry. Our systems are tuned precisely to the production needs of our customers. Nevertheless, the Berhalter flexible modular construction system allows for individual adjustments to existing or new production concepts at any time. Berhalter is Swiss and stands for the highest level of quality. With inspiration, passion and fascination, we create top-class quality products. Nothing is more convincing than one’s own experience. We would like to welcome you as a guest with our values, care for you as a satisfied customer and win you over as a friend.
