What Does a Custom Film Converter Do?

As a custom film converter, we provide specialized services to transform large rolls of films, primarily with adhesives, into customized, finished products tailored to meet specific requirements of various industries. 

These products can include adhesive tapes, protective films, labels, and other film-based components. The process involves cutting, shaping, laminating, and sometimes printing on the film to create the desired product. 

Thomco has expertise in all the core tasks that may be required when converting film materials for individual projects. These include:

  • Slitting:   Cutting large rolls of film into narrower rolls to specified widths, while ensuring precise and clean edges for optimal product performance.
  • Die cutting: Using die cut processes to cut film into specific shapes and sizes, or creating custom parts such as gaskets, seals, and labels.
  • Laminating: Combining multiple layers of film or other materials to create a multi-layer product that enhances properties such as strength, barrier protection, and adhesion.
  • Printing: Adding graphics, text, or patterns to film to customize it for labeling or other purposes.
  • Rewinding: Using specialized equipment to wind finished film products into rolls after processing, ensuring proper tension and alignment for quality rolls.
