Magnetic Flat Bases

Product Information

Kocher+Beck’s GRANOtec magnetic flat bases are the ideal alternative to stainless steel or aluminum when it comes to planishing in label printing presses. Made from a hard, scratch-resistant material, they eliminate the previous disadvantages associated with conventional equivalents, and under normal production conditions, prevent distortion caused by heat or mechanical factors. Conventional steel rule dies often fail dismally when it comes to modern, complex, self-adhesive materials. This is where Kocher+Beck’s magnetic flat bases and flexible dies come to the fore. Our unique GRANOtec design ensures maximum productivity and optimum cutting results. Kocher+Beck’s product range also includes accurate, cost-effective aluminum and steel magnetic flat bases for applications such as the Heidelberg Tiegel (platen) press and Heidelberg cylinders.
