Flat lamination

flat lamination

The flat lamination is a magnetic lamination that can be used by machines that perform flat die cutting. On its surface we could find cutting imprints based on the shape we need to obtain.
A flat lamination can be installed on a magnetic cylinder, and can also be used by semi-rotary and rotary machines (if its development fits the one of the cylinder on which we need to install it). However, it’s not recommended to use it in this way because, unlike rotary laminations, its cutting blades are not made according the deformation that the lamination undergoes to adapt to magnetic cylinders. For this reason, the dimensions of the imprints and gaps may not be faithful to the original layout.
