Pearl Technologies has released the new UltraFlex HD, a close tolerance punch attachment that combines the edge quality of traditional zero-clearance units with lower cost of operation and ease of use comparable to Pearl’s popular Flex Unit product line.
“Traditional zero clearance punch attachments have a higher cost of manufacturing due to expensive punches and dies that require frequent downtime for sharpening or replacement,” says Laurent Cros, CEO of Pearl Technologies. “Our new UltraFlex HD offers pouch manufacturers an innovative, lower cost solution. With our UltraFlex HD, punch and die plates are interchangeable, eliminating the need to replace the entire unit for maintenance or when different profiles are desired.”
The UltraFlex HD is also equipped with Pearl’s rotating assembly mount, which enables the unit to rotate 90 degrees, allowing the punch to face upward during replacement for faster changeovers and improved operator safety. As more consumer products move to pouch packaging, pouch manufacturers need a reliable, close clearance punch that can deliver precise, high-quality edges on a wide range of pouch materials, is safe to operate, and provides a lower cost of operation. For pouch manufacturers who have found traditional zero clearance punches too costly to maintain and operate, the new UltraFlex HD punch is the logical choice.
Pearl will be showcasing its new UltraFlex HD punch as well as other pouch products at the Global Pouch Forum June 14-16 in Miami, Florida.
