How it works

OpalNarrow-Web Label Converters & Converting Lines

A popular product in our label converter and label converting line category, the Opal series converter uses a full array of direct AC Servo motor control. The Opal Series label converter offers the ability to high-speed full rotary die cut supported products, both paper and filmic in forms of traditional vertical die stations as well as horizontal stations.

Die station design is modular and can be engineered to suit standard sizes of Ashe die tool or existing die tools currently running in existing equipment, or both (with the right tooling included).

Tension isolation is achieved by both in-feed and out-feed direct servo-driven nip-drive assemblies before and after the die stations. This allows for precise die cutting and some of the best tolerances available on the market today. The Opal allows for pre-printed high-speed die cutting with the additional option of register control.

Both vertical and horizontal type stations can accommodate precise ‘adjustable anvils’ to give better die-cutting adjustments. All makes of anvil system are available to be engineered into every station as required. The die stations are Ashe-patented, designed to allow engineering changes to suit final requirements.

Other converting facilities are also available, including delam/relam units, full laminating stations, spot and flood coat Flexo stations, back scoring devices and full in-line ink-jet printing.

As standard, the Ashe patented fully automated ‘glueless’ turret system can be added to lines allowing fully automated Converting Lines.
