Case History 7

SCOPE of PROJECT:
Successful method of processing (butt-cutting & kiss-cutting) 3M™ Dual Lock™ Automotive Fastening System in rolls for easy removal.

CUSTOMER REQUIREMENTS:
- Must have space between parts on common liner to facilitate efficient and effort-less part removal from liner.
- Part must dispense automatically or manually error and damage-free.
- Reduce application time.
- Reduce cost for automotive industry.

KAPCO’S SOLUTION:
KAPCO’s engineers accepted the challenge. KAPCO developed a unique method of die-cutting to preserve the integrity of the Dual Lock System and allow easy dispensing of pre-cut parts in a continuous roll format.

During development KAPCO was able to create a process of die-cutting allowing 100% material utilization by eliminating the traditional matrix and converting without crushing the stems of the Dual Lock, typically known for being difficult to cut because of its sensitivity.

Parts were supplied kiss-cut and spaced in rolls for efficient removal and application.

Ingenuity in Converting Dual Lock™!
