ACC Adds Value With Downstream Converting
American Custom Converting’s ability to deliver lamination services to exceptionally wide web substrates sets it apart from most laminating companies, and its downstream converting capabilities extend the value proposition to end-use products.
Green Bay, Wisconsin-based ACC offers wide web laminating up to 124 inches with hot melt applications and up to 108 inches with water-based adhesives, both superior numbers compared to the majority of laminating companies. In addition, ACC’s state-of-the-art tension control systems allows them to maintain constant web tension in the range of 0.25 to 1.5 pounds per linear inch (PLI).
“Our downstream converting capabilities truly differentiate us from other laminating companies,” says Mark Kyles, ACC managing member of sales. “We can provide folding, packaging and a range of other converting processes that minimize the need for additional transportation and reduce cost.”
Laminating Companies That Minimize Start-up Waste
The wide range of diameters ACC can handle provides an ability to minimize start-up waste and roll changes. This is evident in the company’s ability to match film and nonwoven substrates to within a few feet of each other.
“Most laminating companies have to change the nonwoven roll a number of times by the time they run out of film,” Kyles explains. “We can streamline the process by making certain rolls nearly exact multiples of other rolls. This reduces waste and creates a situation in which maximum efficiency is the norm.”
ACC serves a wide range of markets such as automotive, healthcare, industrial, institutional and consumer products. In addition to earning a reputation as a leading provider among laminating companies, ACC’s services include:
- Slitting and rewinding
- Aqueous coating (lotion, soap, ink, etc.)
- Folding and packaging
- Custom converting
