Automate Drilling and Stringing for Fast, Uniform Results

The ability to mass produce tags, labels, or air fresheners with converting equipment drastically speeds up the process of getting your product ready for the selling floor. However, small details in the converting process are often afterthoughts in the minds of marketers and label designers. The additional converting work needed to drill holes through tags and labels, or attach string or elastic cord can add significant time and expense when done by hand or outsourced to another converter. In order to make the converting process smoother and more cost effective for our customers, CSI recently added the Fischell TSS-1 stringing machine and a faster, higher powered Lawson drill for large orders.

At our operation, this new equipment allows us to offer automated hole drilling, grommeting, stringing, and other “afterthoughts” to your order as a value added service, helping you keep costs and stress down by having it all completed in one place. Here’s how we make that happen:

Automated Hole Drilling for Tags & Labels

Not all drilling machines are created equal. In the past, previous drilling models available to CSI were better suited for smaller runs. Thankfully, the Lawson drilling machine we acquired is a high speed power drill, allowing us to automate the drilling process efficiently and produce uniform results for large runs as well as small ones. Now, you can have your drilling and tag/label printing and converting completed and the same location as a value added service to your order with CSI.

We have you covered for drilling jobs that fit the following Lawson drill specs:

· Lift Height: Up to 3”
· Maximum Sheet Sixe: 12” x 12”
· Minimum Sheet Size: 3” x 4”
· Maximum Speed: 18 Lifts a minute
· Minimum Speed: 10 Lifts a minute

It’s important to note that the height of the lifts will be determined by the flatness of the piece, size, and the material. Additionally, the lift height on paper will be greater than on synthetics. Pieces on the minimum end of the spectrum in terms of size will also require smaller lifts.

The Fischell TSS-1 Tag Stringer Saves You Time & Money

So what makes this new stringer an excellent addition to our converting arsenal? The Fischell TSS-1 is a versatile machine, capable of stringing not only flat materials, but 3D shapes as well at a rate of between 800 and 1,400 pieces per hour. The ability to do all of that work through an automated process takes care of the otherwise tedious job of stringing the product by hand, which some customers choose to do themselves in order to save money on their order. By offering stringing on the Fischell TSS-1 as a value added service, CSI’s customers no longer have to stress about the time and money “the small stuff” can amount to.

But don’t take just our word for it! To give you a better idea of what the Fischell TSS-1 stringing machine can do for you, here’s a description from the manufacturer:

“You can string loops in a wide variety of products using our TSS-1 Tag Stringer. Hang tags, product labels, award ribbons, and air fresheners of various shapes and sizes are no problem for this machine. There is no minimum product size, and the maximum is quite generous. You can easily fit an item up to 3" (7.6 cm) wide by 6" (15.2 cm) long. It can also handle tags up to 10" (25.4 cm) wide and nearly unlimited length… The machine can not only tie paper and cardstock products, but also thicker items as well as three-dimensional objects. In some cases it has been used to tie loops in small three-dimensional animal-shaped air fresheners.”
