Cost effective for punching online for short quantities

Postby ArunMaran » Thu Sep 05, 2019 11:55 pm

Hi Everyone,

Hope all of you are doing good.
We started up in flexo few years back. We need some suggestion from you for punching online.
Since the cost of die is quite large but regardless the quantity is more then making a cylinder for punching is affordable.
We sometimes get a quantity of around 30k-50k labels where the cost of making the die for the cylinders are not affordable and hence we punch them offline.
Kindly advice us, if the quantity is less as mentioned and we need to punch them online what methods can be implemented for punching which are also cost effective for short runs.

kindly advice us for the same through messages or by replies we will be helped.

I wish everyone a very good day and bright year ahead.

Hi ArunMaran,

Doing well, thanks.

Hopefully others will have ideas, but the thing that occurs to me is that die manufacturers would have the best suggestions for punching inline. I expect you've probably asked your die supplier already, though. If you haven't already, you might want to ask other manufacturers.

Have a nice weekend!

Hi Frank Burgos,

Thank you for your Suggestion. We have already spoke with our die manufacturer about this but haven't got proper solution for it.
Sure will talk with other manufacturer and to people who are in this field to get more ideas to find a solution.

Thank you and have a great week ahead.
