Materials that are often suitable for this type of process are:
This process always contains a step when the material is being cut. We are experienced with many slitting techniques, such as:
- razor cutting
- crush cutting
- shear cutting
- hot cutting
- guillotine cutting
Besides these slitting techniques it’s also possible to use simple straight knives for foils.
To finish the roll to sheet process, we developed different tools such as a stacking table and automatically changing cassettes for processing the finished product. With pick & place units we pick up the sheets and place them on the desired location.
The advantage of a roll to sheet process is that the product is often directly cut to size. Therefore, the size of the product is less big and it saves weight so it’s easier for the next step in the production process.
Roll Sheet Cutter
The Roll Sheet Cutter has been developed to cut (slitting and cross-cutting) all kind of materials, such as Paper, Foil, Vinyl, Fabrics, Carpet, Foam, etc. from roll to sheets for the Sign-, and Converting industries.Read More
Hologram stamping unit
This dedicated hologram unit is especially developed by Crest for hot stamping Hologram logos onto license plates. Compared to the existing units on the market, this Crest Hologram unit has high cycle speed and maximum adjustment possibilities to the various dimensions of license plates and hologram shapes and dimensions. The servo controlled web transport from the blanking-line ensures an accurate and fast positioning underneath the hologram unit.
A special sensor measures the stop-position of the graphical (Euro) logo or Tick-mark and corrects the position from hologram unit, if necessary, with an fast acting servomotor to ensure always the right Hologram position according the graphical (Euro) logo or Tick-mark.Read More

Ingeniously engineered to separate laminated sheets automatically, the fly cutting system ensures a non-stop production process, especially suitable for polyurethane foam, or even wood.Read More
Winder / Unwinder
The Crest wind up / unwind units are developed for handling various media. The units feature auto-tensioning and automatically regulated wind up speed for perfectly wound rolls. Crest also designs specific winders/unwinders for the handling of bigger rolls and weights over 1000 kg.Read More
Winder Slitter Laminator
The Crest Winder Slitter Laminator is a heavy duty machine developed to laminate foam on a polyester base and slitting the materials to the correct size. Base materials are fed from ø1200mm big rolls (up to 500kg) by the unwinding units and are slit to the correct width by the slitting unit. After slitting, the materials are laminated. In order to optimize the material properties, a second laminating roller set is placed that stretches the material slightly and pressurizes it again. Before winding the laminated material, it can be slit to the correct width and in multiple strips.Read More
The Crest TS laminator is a high quality lamination machine using heat and high pressure. The machine is very suitable to apply a protective laminate on top of UV printed substrates for example. The TS’s special characteristics avoid silvering effects when applying pressure sensitive laminates on rough surfaces and UV printed material.Read More
Rotary Die Cutter
The Crest Rotary Die Cutter is designed to perform a variety of winding, laminating and cutting techniques, from cutting, kiss cutting, quillotine-cutting to punching, scoring and slitting on many different materials, such as plastic, paper, foam, rubber, foil and adhesives. Due to its modular system up to 17 different application units can be applied and interchanged with ease. This makes the Rotary Die Cutter especially convenient for different products and processes.Read More
