Bernal introduces its new proprietary Cladded Rotary Dies with Fusion® This new style Cladded die provides superior tool steel cutting blades for considerably longer die life. The Fusion® process has dramatically increased the bonding of the tool steel blade to the mild steel base cylinder for longer die life. The Bernal Cladded dies use the same tool steel used for metal cutting and in more expensive segmented style rotary dies. Cladded dies provide the die life of expensive segmented dies at a frac- tion of the cost. Bernal has developed this patented process over the last 12 years and has introduced new laser technology combined with enhanced heat treating methods to provide a superior rotary die alternative. These Cladded dies have been successfully used in production for the last 2 years at a number of leading high volume folding carton converters. The Bernal Cladded dies: • Reduces die cost. • Good for medium length production runs. • Lower repair cost over the life of the die. • Reduces die deliveries. • Greater ability to modify the die layout. • Reduces die obsolescence Bernal, the original developer of the RP® (dual knife) style ro- tary die, has also enhanced their engineering process to take advantage of the new fusion process. The RP® style rotary die has become the standard for converting folding cartons. Ber- nal has used advanced engineering techniques to maximize the flexibility of the Cladded dies. Bernal has invested in mod- ern automated machining and laser work centers to improve quality and reduce die delivery and costs. The Bernal Cladded dies are available in web widths up to 80 inches. Bernal is the leading manufacturer of rotary dies and die cutting systems.
