Boucherville, April 11h, 2016 – ETI Converting Equipment, a Canadian company based in Quebec (Canada) just received a patent for its « Apparatus and Method for cutting facestock ». UNITED STATES PATENT NUMBER 9,289,912 B2. ETI received the patent immediately prior to Drupa; this reinforced its promotion of a unique concept which consists of die-cutting extremely thin release liners (12 to 18 micron).
Since its launch, the Pellicut, this high speed rotary die-cut unit, has been enthusiastically welcomed by the self-adhesive label printers, who understand the advantages generated by this technology: – Avoid the die-cutting mark problems on paper and film liners completely – Reduce costs material – Half the amount of liner waste – Lower shipping costs – Less rewinding time since there are more labels per roll – Etc…
This proven technology guarantees that the die will not mark the liner during the diecutting process and that there will be no breaks on labeling machines.
This equipment can die-cut PS material at a speed of 500 feet/min. (150 m/min.) and uses a standard flexible magnetic die. The W anti-deflection system avoids pressure cutting variations and reduces risks of die-cutting marks on the liner. An equalizer system corrects the thickness inconsistency of the magnetic plate presently sold on the market. Moreover, the cutting pressure is not sensitive to heat variations in the long run and during a continuous usage.
ETI Converting Equipment intends to use this patent to promote and install equipments around the world.
Our equipment will be presented at Drupa, Düsseldorf, from May 31st to June 10th, Booth 3C14, Hall 3.

Controlling color in the Flexo presss room is the theme for the second edition of Flexo Gurukul, to be held on October 27-28 at Shakuntalam Convention Center, Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.
Themed on controlling color in flexo pressroom, the session will see Frank Burgos, consultant at FlexoExchange and flexo expert for the last 30 years, again acting as teacher.
Topics the session will cover include spot color expectations and challenges, spot color formulas, blending spot colors with greater success, working off spot color inks, four color process color control, key concepts of process printing and understanding color standards.
More than 100 registrations from about 70 companies are expected to attend the event in its second edition.
Harveer Sahni, chief mentor at Fasco Printech, which organizes the FlexoGurukul events, said: ‘At this platform, we are trying to reinforce and teach the correct way to run a printing press. ‘We feel printers are getting very serious about the training. They are mostly repeat registrations from the first session. However, most companies who sent two delegates last time are sending four to six this time. There will be lot more printers and delegates at the upcoming event.’
The first FlexoGurukul seminar took place earlier this year.
Fasco Printech is trying to add more value this time around by making it more interactive and including educational videos to engage the audience.
The second Flexo Gurukul takes place in the days running up to Labelexpo India 2014, which takes place at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi on October 29 to November 1.
The venue and dates for the second FlexoGurukul have been strategically decided right before Labelexpo India so exhibitors who register can participate while monitoring the build-up of their respective stands. After the two-day session, Burgos will attend Labelexpo India for any guidance or help that professionals may need at the show floor. ‘Training and education are a part of Fasco Printech. It is not restricted to FlexoGurukul,’ said Sahni.
Fasco Printech sees building this concept further by starting training schools and helplines for the industry over a period of time. However, Sahni added: ‘We have a technical team ready but the initiative will only be complete if other companies partner with us.’

Weldon Celloplast is to recreate the Technology Bar concept at Labelexpo India 2014 to be held at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi from October 29 to November 1.
The Technology Bar will feature technology from names such as Omet, ETI Converting Equipment, Delta Industrial, Martin Automatic, Link Label Machinery, Berhalter, FAES, Nikka, Lartec, Lundberg Tech and Vetaphone. Weldon Celloplast is an exclusive agent in India for most of these companies.
Technology Bar is a concept that was first introduced at Labelexpo 2012 by Weldon Celloplast, with various counters allowing all of the participating companies to deliver their latest technologies to show attendees.
Harveer Sahni, managing director of Weldon Celloplast, said: ‘People have already started writing to us now to fix appointments at the show. We are also travelling to meet printers before the show.’
Weldon Celloplast will launch its own water-based inkjet printable polyester film at the show. Both the coating and liner are manufactured in-house. Sahni said: ‘We have started trials and testing at printers. This will be a very affordable product as compared to international brands.’
Other products on show will include self-adhesive labelstocks and label products. These include A4 laser/inkjet layflat label materials, tamper evident labels and specialty double sided tapes.
Omet, a leading Italian label press manufacturer, will display an 8-color Omet XFlex X4. Weldon Celloplast has sold more than 10 Omet press across the country. The company is in the process of installing one of the most complicated Omet presses in west India that will have units for offset and flexo, as well as gravure, on the same press.
Canada’s ETI Converting Equipment will have senior staff members in the Technology Bar at Labelexpo India 2014 to talk about its Mini-Cohesio, a coating laminating machine with a 13in web width. It consists of servo driven in-line coating technology and can come equipped with the Pellicut technology which enables to die-cut down to 18-micron release liners and a non-stop turret rewinder. The Pellicut is a heavy duty module for precise die-cutting. It includes a W type anti-deflecting system to avoid pressure cutting variation and a die equaliser system to correct the thickness inconsistency of magnetic plate. It is offered as a stand-alone unit or could be retrofitted to the Cohesio or to an existing servo label press.
Other technologies to be shown as part of the Technology Bar will include Delta Industrial’s systems for a variety of complex medical, pharmaceutical, label, security, RFID, packaging and cosmetic products, and Martin Automatic’s MBSC automatic butt splicer, STR automatic transfer rewinder, MBS automatic butt splicer and LRD automatic transfer rewinder.
Link-Label Machinery (Lien-Yi machinery) will have catalogs and information of its intermittent rotary label presses, hot foil equipment, slitter re-winders and other converting machinery, and Berhalter will display its B 500 system which is a flat-bed die-cutting. It will also showcase its process control and punching tools.
TTR slitting and rewinding machines manufacturer FAES will be participating for the first time, while Nikka Research Deutschland will have the Alis and ODRI inspection systems, widely used in cosmetics, pharmaceutical, packaging, beverage and food product printing, on show. Lartec will exhibit its range of flexible dies. Vetaphone will also be present at the show floor with its corona system on display.
Lundberg Tech will have on display WasteTech, a unit for capturing, cutting and collection of edge trim and matrix waste from process machines. Another product, Granulator GR-series, will have features such as optional unique lubrication systems and non-stick coating for handling aggressive adhesives.
Sahni said: ‘Labelexpo India is being organized at a very important time for the Indian economy. We have a stable government after a long time to help boost the economy. The new government has the mandate, numbers and the will to do it.
‘Printers will probably make a lot of partnerships at the show floor. And with all partnerships and in-house developments, Weldon Celloplast is positioned at the forefront of technology.’
