Rotary Flexible Dies
The Atlas Chem-Milling family of Flexible Cutting Dies are custom
designed for rotary die-cutting converters of folding cartons
pressure sensitive materials, tags, envelopes, business forms,
and specialty items (Apex, Summit).
These dies are easy to mount and register and are available for
all cylinder types (magnetic or non-magnetic) and a wide range
of die heights.
Flexible Die Products:
Summit Die - Ideal for short run paper applications, the Summit Die is a chemically
etched and hand sharpened flexible die. The Summit Die is generally lower
in cost and has a shorter lead time for delivery.
Apex Die - A 100% machine sharpened knife edge, our Apex Die can cut many
substrates / materials such as paper, laser labels, vinyls, Tyveks, mylars,
films, face stocks, polyester and thin foils. Send us your "Hard
to Cut Material" and let us prove it to you.
Both Summit and Apex Dies include the
801-B Surface Treatment.

Folding Carton Flexible Dies
Atlas Chem-Milling is the industry leader
in the manufacturing of wrap-around magnetic dies used in the
manufacturing of folding cartons. Atlas Chem-Milling’s
Rotocut and Rotoplate magnetic dies, made from thin, flexible
sheets of steel designed to wrap around magnetic cylinders, offer
a unique alternative to solid rotary tools.
Features and Benefits:
- Low Price: Translates to a lower "cost
per thousand" for the converter.
- Quick Deliveries: We typically produce dies
in a few days.
- Fast Set-Up Times: Die installations take only
minutes and can be done completely in-house.
- High Speed Capability: Atlas Chem-Milling's
magnetic dies can easily obtain speeds up to 1000 F.P.M.
- Wide Range of Size
Options: Available in cut
repeats ranging from 16" to 60", and in web widths up
The Magnetic Rotoplate system utilizes Rotary Pressure or Burst
cutting in a matched upper/lower die set. Rotary Pressure
cutting, combined with hardened steel plates, yields long die
life and excellent cut quality. For paperboards up to .030” (.75mm)
thick, if you desire long die life and consistent cut quality
for your medium to wide web systems, Atlas Chem-Milling recommends
Magnetic Rotoplate dies.
The patented Magnetic Rotocut system features “Crush
Cutting” (CNC Sharpened) dies designed as a matched, upper/lower
die set. Effective on paperboards up to .024” (.6mm) thick,
these dies will cut and crease in a single operation. Crush Cutting
yields a very flat, undistorted blank which is desirable in most
applications. We recommend this system for narrow web systems, dedicated
to short run, fast turn around work.
