Cutting and Folding

In the final processing step, often referred to as packaging, the label tape is rolled up ready for sale or cut into individual labels and folded as required.

The hot cutting blades seal the cutting edge. The selection of a suitable folding method guarantees that the resulting harder cut edges "disappear" in the seam of the ready-made garment or are covered by the folding edge.

Some labels require special equipment, depending on the later intended application. For example, a certain softer or harder "handle" of the product or properties such as water repellency or flame retardancy can be achieved.
