Novation, Inc. of Bethlehem, PA Develops Smaller, Thinner Flag
In order to address situations where a flag protruding into the web can damage a customer’s product, Novation has developed a smaller version of flags for use with the AF2 WebFlagger. This flag protrudes less than 3/8” (9.5mm) into the web. This allows for flags to be located outside the coated or printed section of a web and they can also typically be “edge trimmed” off on a downstream process.
This new flag is also thinner (2mil thick) to prevent subsequent wraps of delicate webs from being damaged by wrapping over thicker flags.
