With a thinner profile ThinStream yields 17% more labels per roll and reduces liner waste. The modular equipment used with the liner material can operate as a stand-alone unit or be added to an existing press line without altering the production layout.  The ThinStream die-cutting technology employs a delam/relam process, a unique web control system, and chilled dies, so the liner is never touched. It can die-cut labels at high speeds with quality and registration control. The ThinStream die-cutting head eliminates die strikes and web breaks for uninterrupted productivity.
