The Atlas Institute

A Team of Experts At Your Disposal

Partnering with Atlas gives you access to a team of experts with decades of experience in the die cutting and converting industries.  The Atlas Institute team is dedicated to your success through on-site support services and on-press training for all aspects of die cutting.

Pre-Make Ready

Pre-Make Ready training helps you achieve your make-ready goals through best practices prior to going to press.


During change over, tool handling is key to limiting down time between runs. Post-Press training shows how to maximize tool life and minimize set-up during the next production run.

Make-Ready Training

Learn the best practices in make-ready including correct taping methods and patching.  Once a new process has been developed, the on-press training focuses on implementation.

High Speed Stripping & Blanking

Learn about new industry innovations in high speed stripping and blanking. The importance of substrates, design orientation and upstream information is a major focus of the training.

Press Upgrades

Have an older press? Need to minimize make-ready times? Our team can determine the feasibility for press upgrades including skewing devices, 1 mm plate systems and micro-adjustment.

Embossing Set Up

Take the headache out of embossing set ups. This training focuses on complete embossing set up for in-line and double pass applications using the ProEasy Set. Design limitations and options are discussed in full.

Press Leveling

A level cutting bed minimizes make-ready time and reduces damage to the cutting rule.  Press footprinting corrects trouble areas in the cutting station to increase efficiency and reduce cost.

Process Reviews
