SmartMark ® has the capability to manufacture printing dies from a number of distinct materials. Through stringent heat-treatment processes all dimensional changes are minimised and controlled, to ensure the integrity of the engraved material is maintained.
Through the selection of the most appropriate material and our specialist heat-treatment, SmartMark ® can manufacture cigarette printing dies that accurately maintain pitch to strict tolerances, which is crucial to high speed continuous marking.
At SmartMark ® we define the number of printing panels on a specific printing die as either 2up, 4up or 8up. This refers to the number of printing panels on each die (or the number of prints for every revolution of the die)
