Die cutting is an important link in the packaging supply chain. Berhalter's products enable the appearance, sustainability and quality of a product to be determined as efficiently as possible.
Over the past few years, Berhalter has reacted continuously and flexibly to market demands by introducing a number of innovations. Alongside its capacity for constant innovation, the Swiss manufacturer is synonymous with efficient and customer-oriented diecutting systems; it specialises in user-friendly, but highly productive, machines.
Berhalter die-cutting systems are the most high-performance option for punching foils and films from rolls efficiently and accurately. Across the world, its machines are at the heart of numerous packaging operations, fulfilling every customer requirement.
This applies to flat packaging lids in aluminium or polyester, such as Nestlé's yogurt lids, as well as to those with relief impressions, like the ones Philadelphia uses on its for cheese spreads. Deep-drawn aluminium lids, like those used for pet food such as Sheba or Cesar, enhance an already-extensive range of possibilities, and Berhalter's die-cutting machines can also be used to produce paper labels - on beer bottles, for example - and labels for IML applications, such as those on Starbucks coffee cups.
A Berhalter roll-to-roll flatbed die-cutting system meets all requirements in an economic way. This highly accurate and efficient system for foil and film fits perfectly into the most economic reel-to-reel production systems.
The processes before finally cutting lid and label contours also influence the overall cost of the finished product. Any system should save as much material as possible, but the printing arrangement depends on the nesting possibilities of the die-cutting system. Only roll-fed flatbed die-cutting machines, such as those made by Berhalter, can achieve optimum material savings.
Efficiency means not only speed but also increased output. This can be achieved by fewer processing stages, as well as process supervision, to avoid scrap.
The range of applications for Berhalter's die-cutting technology knows no bounds. Its systems enable intricate lid and label geometries as well as a wide range of different materials to be optimally processed and die cut to perfection.
Berhalter will continue to improve the efficiency of its die-cutting systems and to focus consistently on the market success of its customers.
