A Lesson in Grippers

Many of our gripper bars have options for the grippers: standard, marginless and corrugated. For example, check out the gripper bars for Bobst 1080 die cutters. http://www.conwaymachine.com/products/142/bobst-sp-1080-gripper-bar-complete

How do you know which one you need?

Standard is for die cutting basic paperboard–about the thickness of a cereal box.

Marginless is for die cutting with thinner to no margins. This is for specific die cutters and is more rare.

Corrugated is for die cutting thick board with larger flutes, about the thickness of a moving box.

Still not sure what you need? Send us a photo and we’ll help you figure it out.


Celebrating 30 Years at CMI

Last month, Nicky Havens celebrated 30 years of working at Conway Machine, Inc. We greatly appreciate all of his hard work through the years and look forward to many more to come!

Here’s a write-up in the local newspaper: http://thecabin.net/news/business/2012-12-01/nicky-havens-recognized-30-years-service#.UMeRKoNTySo

Happy Labor Day

Conway Machine celebrated Labor Day with a cook out.

We grilled hamburgers, and employees brought side dishes. Everyone’s favorite is Nicky’s wife’s potato salad. It goes fast, and there is never any leftover for the night shift!

We also held our monthly drawing for the scratch-off tickets and cash prize. We were happy to announce that Brett was the winner! Unfortunately he didn’t hit the jackpot on the scratch-offs. Maybe next time!

Ready for the Olympics!

We will be cheering for TEAM USA, especially Michael Phelps, Lolo Jones and Abby Wambach as they compete for gold AGAIN.

It all comes back to the pride we have in being 100% Made in America. Our quality gripper bars are made with great care and attention to detail. Every time you buy from Conway, you are guaranteeing another American job. Thank you to all of our customers for your support over the years.
