Its versatile performance allows it to bond and adhere to a variety of plastics, aluminum, glass, steel, and much more. 3M™ VHB™ tapes have the ability to perform as rivets, spot welds, liquid adhesives and other permanent fasteners.
Laser converting provides our clients with access to a number of benefits. Some of the benefits you can gain from Laser converting include: reducing the amount of waste that is produced, speeding up the assembly process, optimising the manufacturing process and improving the custom adhesive tape quality
Laser cutting VHB™ Tape is done with a 9.3 or 10.6 micron CO2 laser die cutter any-CUT III. The laser beam readily heats and vaporizes the material that is directly in its path creating a clean, uniform cut through the thickness of the laminate.
any-CUT III is known to be working wonders for die cutting. It has a maximum media width of 350mm and comes with a laser power of 250 watts. There is also the option of web guide for precise half/full cut. Furthermore, it also has a linear camera along with a second reminder. In the slitter, you can use four knives.
The any-CUT II is an entry level, compact digital label finisher built to the same exacting standards as the high-end machines. For an entry-level product, the any-CUT II exceeds expecta- tions. It can run 25m/per minute in laser and provides an excellent solution for your day-to-day operations. The any-CUT II label finisher is easy to use and gives you a wide range of laser cutting options for a competitive advantage.
How to cut VHB Tape ?
When you cut the VHB™ Tape with analog die cutter or knife cutter, the blade will be easily dull because the adhesive of VHB™ Tape is stick to the blade. However, cutting it with a laser die cutter any-CUT III, the VHB™ Tape’s cutting line will not only be cut neatly, but also there is no need to replace the consumables. Also, it is able to cut various shapes without changing the blade or dies.
Before the laser cutting, it can attach the back liner on the VHB tape.
Due to accurate paper transfer using the web guide and fine laser output, the cut through parts media drop to the lower tray and take off the waste clearly a, so you can see the results of the work come out perfectly.
Manufacturers and converters agree that most label substrates can safely and functionally be subjected to laser cutting. Laser finishing can handle a variety of materials, including PSA, polyester, paper, abrasives, cork, foam, rubber, neoprene, silicone, PET, polycarbonate, polyethylene and polypropylene. This list also includes ablated metals bonded to polyester or similar substrates, as well as abrasives, adhesives, fabric, paper, plastic, rubber, and especially any-CUT laser die cutter is optimized in reflective heat transfer film.
