DUNMORE Offers Smartphone App for Label Converters

 

BRISTOL, PA | DUNMORE Corp., a global supplier of engineered, coated and laminated films, will demonstrate a new Smartphone app for label converters at Labelexpo Americas 2014, September 9–11, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL.

The free application, available now for iPhones and Android devices, is a roll-to-roll calculator that features a comprehensive list of calculations and conversions useful for any professionals working with continuous web substrates. Reportedly, it will help label converters and industry manufacturers quickly calculate roll outside diameter and roll length. It uses film thickness, roll diameter, and core size to determine the total length of the substrate. Conversely, it calculates the overall roll diameter if you use the film thickness, length and core size as inputs.

Visitors to the company's booth (1357) will be able to download the app and get a live demonstration of its capabilities.

“While developing the app, we considered what calculations would be valuable to label converters, film manufacturers, adhesive coaters, and other professionals working with continuous web substrates,” says Michael Sullivan, Marketing Communications. “We’re not reinventing the wheel here—these calculations are available online and widely used throughout the label industry—we’re simply increasing accessibility. We wanted to develop a convenient tool that could be used on the manufacturing floor or on the road to help make more informed decisions quickly.”

The app is said to allow users to perform the following tasks quickly:

• Calculate roll outside diameter

• Calculate roll length from diameter

• Determine the resistance of a metalized substrate

• Calculate yield from length

• Calculate total material needed from label parameters

• Calculate yield using specific gravity

• Quick conversions for area, weight, distance, and thickness
