Flatbed Converting

At Alfast we perform flatbed conversion after your specifications and needs. Flatbed conversion is characterised by a specific method where knives mounted to a flat sheet die cut the specific shape in the chosen material. We have several years of experience and therefore in a position to deliver the products you need. We are always open to new types of assignments and able to find a solution to even the most advanced demands.

Advantages of flatbed converting

Flatbed converting is the optimal choice, when it comes to jobs in fewer copies and smaller stocks. For this purpose, the tools for cutting are cheap to manufacture which makes flatbed converting an evident solution in testing prototypes. At Alfast we offer flatbed converting performed in both rubber and foam. For a complete list of materials, go to the bottom of this page. In case your preferred type of material does not appear on the list, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will find the best solution for you.

The maximum dimension of a die cut product in flatbed converting is 130mm x 250mm. In case of jobs in greater stocks than approximately 50,000 pc. we recommend rotary converting.
