Caplugs will showcase custom die-cuts designed to reduce the time, labor and risk of mask failure associated with manual masking. A custom die-cut can help reduce masking application time while increasing efficiency, accuracy and consistency, the company says.

From a simple jpeg or PDF file, the company can create a custom die-cut mask in a high-temperature film such as a polyester certified for temperatures ranging to 500°F (260°C). The die-cuts can be produced as pre-cut shapes on rolls of 1,000 pieces, in kits with masks for each area of a product or other solution to fit a particular application. They can be further customized with part numbers or instructions for installation printed right on the mask, helping to prevent errors.
