Interchangeable Die-Boxes

The tipping of shoelaces is done by dies, which wrap the acetate-film around the shoelace, press all together under high pressure and cut. Depending on the thickness of the shoelace you will need different sizes of dies. The change of dies when changing from thick to thin shoelaces takes about 1 hour.
In our machine the complete die-box with the dies inside can be changed. A die-box with a small die can be changed in about 5 minutes against a die-box with a large die. This is not only a significant advantage of time- and cost-beneficial. The wear of the dies is reduced hereby very much.

Our Die-Boxes and Dies are identical with those of the company ARTOS and can consequently be interchanged.
