WHAT IS CONVERTING?

SMI and other converting companies specialize in combining raw materials in order to create new products. These materials often include adhesives, silicone, tapes, foams, plastics, felts, rubbers, liners, and metals that are produced in long sheets called webs and rolled up for easy shipping and handling. Converters take these webs and feed them through machines to change these sheets of raw materials into intermediate-form components or end products. These machines include printing presses, rotary converters, laminating, coating, and slitting devices. Converting industry specialty services often include:

  • Adhesive coating to make labels and tape
  • Silicone coating for release liners
  • Die-cutting materials into finished parts or labels
  • Printing services
  • Roll slitting to form coils
  • Laminating services
  • Vacuum forming
