Continue reading to learn a few reasons why Frank Lowe’s kiss cutting services are the sweetest.
At Frank Lowe, we offer kiss cut products and components customized in the specific shape and size of your choosing. Kiss cutting explains when the elastomer or parts are fully cut through — without cutting the throw-away, adhesive lamination backing or paper liner. The process of kiss cutting got its name because the components are fully cut through, but the die gently "kisses" the backing paper without cutting through it.
If you're looking to improve your manufacturing process, our kiss cut parts and components on a roll may be the ideal solution. We can create custom kiss cut products to your exact specifications and include a pressure-sensitive adhesive backing to create peel-and-stick components that make application as easy as possible. Whether you use an assembly line, hand application, or robotics, our kiss cut products can offer countless benefits.
With kiss cut products, the backing paper is never cut. As a result, the kiss-cut components can be shipped and supplied in neat and tidy rolls. These rolls are much easier to handle. Kiss cuts on a roll also work to protect the product from deforming or damage during transit.
If you’re assembling a product at your facility, the kiss cut parts can greatly improve productivity and facilitate faster assembly. You can easily set up a fixture for the roll at work stations and allow your workers to quickly remove parts from the roll and apply.
This beats attempting to remove backing from each individual component — possibly having to get their fingernail under each part. With parts kiss-cut on a roll, the assembler can simply continue to remove parts from the roll and apply with utmost efficiency.
With Frank Lowe’s kiss-cutting technology, you can improve the speed and efficiency of your assembly process. Kiss cut components reduces the need for assemblers to waste time digging through a bag or a box, separating parts stuck together by static or adhesives, and removing the liner. As a result, it can reduce your overall labor costs, which is directly related to reduced production costs.
Often, our kiss cut products are used to create peel-and-stick type of products equipped with pressure-sensitive adhesives. In either case, our kiss cut products can be applied manually by hand on your assembly line or with high-tech industrial robots or other types of automated equipment.
At Frank Lowe, we regularly perform kiss cutting with an expansive array of quality elastomers, including:
