Some product designs require that a separate substrate material be placed in a precise location within a zone of adhesive on a larger part. In the converting industry, this process is often referred to as island placement. Island placement is the process of starting and stopping a secondary web of material so a die cut part can be placed on the primary web. The secondary web may introduce a die cut part made in a different process or it may be a part produced within the same converting process. This island placement process eliminates unnecessary waste, produces high-value products, and is a good option for complex parts that may involve expensive materials. ATL uses industry-leading, narrow web, die cutting presses with advanced servo technology and closed-loop registration to manufacture precision, island placed products for many markets and applications.
