Our processes within manufacturing

We rely on the latest systems and processes to meet the flexible requirements of our customers and to guarantee efficiency and a constant high product quality. We work with highly modern production machinery as laser cutting systems, flat bed plotters, several punching systems, cross-wound winders, slitter winders, bonding machines and laminators as well as winding machines. True to the motto »Anything is possible«, we sometimes develop our own machines, if necessary for the best solution of an order.

Cutting

 

Roll cutting, sheet cutting, parting-off: We decide which process is best appropriate depending on the material and the specific requirements. None of our cutting processes depends on quantities and all of them offer a high degree of flexibility as almost every dimension is possible.

Sheet cutting

Sheets can be cut up to 900 mm width – lengths is uo to customer‘s request. Up to four materials in one work process.

Roll cutting

Our roll cutting machines process rolls up to an outside diameter of 600 mm on 2“- or 3“-cores. They cut widths from 1,5 to 1550 mm. 

Parting-off

This machine proesses rolls with an outside diameter up to 800 mm. Widths from 20 to 1010 mm are possible.

Wrapping

 

We are able to prepare the material used economically and adapted to the customer's needs thanks to our wrapping machines. The optimal wrapping tension and the possibility of individual lengths provide for efficiency and flexibility.

  • up to 1550 mm width
  • unwinding max. 1000 mm outside diameter
  • 3"- and 6"-core possible

Layer laminating and laminating with substrate

 

When laminating layers, several layers of the same or different materials are joined.  Laminating with substrate is also a process in which a material is laminated with a substrate material. What does not fit will be made to fit: We laminate layers with each other and layers with substrate and coat according to the individual needs and specifications of the customers, on one side, on two sides or partially adhesive. New material configurations are feasible by the possibility to bond different materials. The most efficient solution is determined taking into consideration the objective.

  • up to 1600 mm width
  • up to four materials in one work process
  • winding up 1"-6"-core
  • rewind 3"-6"-core

Lasing

 

With our camera-monitored flatbed laser systems we offer you customised solutions that convince. Lasing requires extremely short set-up times, does not generate any tool costs, adheres to tightest tolerances and thus ensures hardly imaginable productivity increases. Thus, we are able to manufacture individual parts and unlimited quantities - always meeting the same requirements and in best series quality.

  • short setup times
  • cutting gap ca. 0,2 mm
  • closest tolerances (+/- 0,1 mm)
  • material thickness up to 5 mm
  • for small-batch and large-scale production
  • camera support for detection of crop marks

 

 

Plotting

 

With our plotters, we offer individual part manufacturing in series quality as well as large-scale production solutions with no limitations in terms of quantity. Almost no limitations to the contour, tight tolerances, oscillating or kiss-cutting, grooving or perforating - we offer these advantages or others as the extremely short set-up times thanks to plotting.

  • short setup times
  • closest tolerances (+/- 0,2 mm)
  • material thickness up to 20 mm
  • for small-batch and large-scale production
  • oscillating/kiss-cut
  • grooving or perforating
  • usage of three tools without tool change

Die-cutting

 

If the laser processes are uneconomical or technically not feasible, the die-cutting process is used. There is a long list of advantages of the die-cutting technology. Whether flat-bed or rotary die-cutting: It is the unlimited quantity with which our die-cutting procedure convince besides other advantages as low tool costs, tight tolerances and the possibility of material combinations. INNO TAPE is able to die-cut widths of up to 650 mm and offers customised solutions on highest level. Our die-cutting system is provided with camera monitoring and works with residual dust particle scan and contour scan. By immediate correction possibilities, exact results are possible.

  • up to 650 mm width
  • closest tolerances
  • material combinations
  • inline printing
  • monitored by camera
  • particel and contour scan

Hybrid manufacturing

1. Corona pretreatment of the surface
The special pretreatment is designed to make a printing on a siliconised surface possible by roughening. With this technology it is furthermore possible to prepare materials optimally for bonding.

2. Coating/layer laminating
In the next step, the foundation for an individual product according to your requirements is laid: material combination, liner change - everything is possible, just as requested.

3./4. Lasing and die-cutting
However, the most important specialty follows: the combination of rotary lasing and die-cutting. As necessary, the machine is able to laser most sophisticated parts and carry out die-cutting directly afterwards.

5. Inline printing
If necessary, printing on the backside of the substrate liner is possible before the last step of part testing.

6. Inspection by camera  – tube scan
The installed tube scan is an inspection system which is used for a 100% monitoring of the punching/laser results. It documents produced quantities and identifies flaws as well as contour deviations - even on reflecting materials as for example metal foils.

The use of our hybrid machine offers highest process precision and a finished product "on the roll" which is optimally prepared for an industrial further processing.
