Woven Labels

Cutting and folding

In the last step of production (so called finishing) the ribbon is getting rolled, cut in several labels and/ or as required folded.

The hot knifes seal the cut edges. Choosing the right kind of folding is the guarantee for covering the hard cut edges.

For some labels it is necessary to execute a special conditioning depending on the designated application - labels are getting harder or softer and accordingly properties like hydrophobicity or flame retardance are realizable.
