Everything is possible if
you have the right
capabilities
to do it.

Since more than 40 years Linxens has reinforced its capabilities in roll-to-roll manufacturing with strong research and engineering tools to offer the largest range of services to design and manufacture custom solutions.
Our Capabilities

Find out what we
can do for you.

Mass Production
Nile offers a unique industrial proposal for mass production is several geographic regions, to deliver from thousands to millions units with the best-in-class quality and reliability. Linxens has delivered more than 500 billion units since its creation.
Precision die cutting
With state-of-the-art rotary and semi-rotary converting machines, we are able to precision die cut materials such as films, foils, foams, and paper. Individual servo control at each die station also allows for another critical factor in web converting: precise tension control.

Each die cutting machine nip station can be set at a different speed ratio to allow you to create tension zones with the press of a button. With multiple individually servo-driven die cut stations, the tightest and most accurate register and re-register can be achieved.

The machines and the unique software are unparalleled in their ability to make corrections based on incoming eye marks, in order to put the cut in precisely the right place automatically.

We convert material in widths up to 330mm (approx.13 inches) web width.
Assembly
Nile offers assembly on non-reel feed products such as molded parts, metal studs, etc., to be fitted and assembled on multilayer products delivered as single items or to be delivered on a roll.
Project Management
Nile has a very experienced project team that can act as your partner for your needs and projects. We will appoint a committed project manager that will help you develop your product.
Multilayer laminating
Nile is an expert in laminating material layers with high precision. The layers can be cut in register, prior to laminating with other materials.
Cut to PCS
Sometimes consumers will use the final product, therefore, roll delivery of the products is not possible. Nile produces the product either on roll-to-roll or roll to PCS.

The cut to PCS from roll material can be done at tight tolerances and at high speed. The PCS can then be bundled with bands.
User tests
Nile can perform user test studies for stick to skin applications.

Examples of user studies we can perform:

– Adhesion over short and long term

– Adhesion endurance under high or low activity

– Dry or wet hydrogel conductivity over time

– Batch and showering capabilities
Laser cutting
Nile offers reel-to-reel high-speed laser cutting and engraving. For the most complex shapes or small holes, die cut tools will not do the job. The CO2 galvo laser processing takes the technology further.

We laser cut on the fly up to 330mm (approx. 13 inches) web width.
RFID test and Encoding
For RFID products, we are able to encode and verify the RFID performance, so that we can deliver products with certain specifications. The encoding can be paired with visual codes or numbers or created from a provided list; or each RFID product can be checked performance-wise, so that only products with the requested performance are delivered.

We can even perform a 100% stress test on each product. This guarantees that antennas, or often IC connections, are 100% controlled for all products delivered. Tags with irregular performance will then be removed and replaced, so there are 100% quality-verified tags on the reels.
Adhesion testing
Nile can perform adhesion tests, for example, according to FTM1 & FTM2. The tests can be done with the customer’s specific material.

As a neutral partner, we are able to benchmark products from different suppliers.
Roll-to-roll screen printing
Nile screen prints widths up to 420mm (approx. 16.5 inches) web width. With active X & Y registration of the print, high precision can be achieved. The inks that are used are either cured with UV, UV-led, or thermally cured. With thermal curing capabilities of 45 meters (approx. 49 yards) of web meters, the most challenging inks and pastes can be cured with high output. Virtually endless amounts of prints can be done thanks to the machines’ re-registration possibilities.
Blister and blister pack
If your final product needs to be packed in a blister pack, we offer heat-formed PET blisters. We can also do liners, which for technical reasons have to have a recess somewhere on the liner, for example, in the area a hydrogel must be placed. Smart packing solutions can often create a better experience of quality and usability.
Aging and temp cycling
Nile has the capability to perform temp cycling and temp cycling studies. This can help you to see how your materials will age and withstand the application environment.
Roll-to-roll UV-inkjet printing
We offer UV inkjet printing at web widths up to 330mm (approx. 13 inches). The digital technology enables fast image changes and variable prints such as numbers or codes.

With a very high resolution (up to 720×1260 dpi), low migration ink is printed in speeds of up to 40m (approx. 44 yards)/min.
UoR – Units on Roll
We also offer non-reel products delivered on adhesives on reels. The advantage of volume application of products on reels is, for many industries a vital need for precise and cost-effective application. The product may be stainless steel-etched nameplates or molded plastic parts.
Engineering
Nile’s product development department can help design and engineer your product for manufacturability, as well as provide input on required validation and testing methods.

Engineers can utilize an existing Illustrator AI, Corel Draw, DWG AutoCAD, or DXF file to produce a prototype or can assist in creating a draft according to your specifications. Collaborative engineer-to-engineer communication allows for an innovative design partnership approach.

All materials, adhesives, and equipment are evaluated and qualified to provide the most efficient and effective design solution. Master Design Files are developed and approved between Nile and our customer’s project team to ensure successful progression through each phase-gate of the development process.
RFID converting
With state-of-the-art converting machines, we are able to precision die cut RFID inlays with very tight tolerances. At the same time, we can laminate adhesives or laminate layers that have been separately die cut in register [LH4] to the inlay.

The conversion can be made in high-speed roll-to-roll or roll to single items stacked.
Vision control
The only way to guarantee 100% is by using vision control. Our in-line camera vison system allows us to look for print errors and material splices, check and verify codes, and also continuously measure critical dimensions.
Clean Room Manufacturing
To meet products with clean room production demands, we offer products produced in and under the routines of ISO class 8.
Prototyping
Nile’s prototyping capabilities give designers and engineers the opportunity to test performance on pre-commercial quantities of parts before committing to expensive production tools and set-up costs. Prototyping offers the flexibility of evaluating and changing a design with the assurance of future scalability to production quantities.
Pitch-to-pitch multilayer lamination
We step-by-step align the different layers which each have their own design. We match the designs in X & Y for a perfect fit and design.
High-end plastic molding
When choosing a plastic, the first thing to consider is the part’s function and the physical environment that it’s going to be exposed to. It is important to consider what type of injection molding material is going to stand up to various environmental challenges such as temperature fluctuations, moisture, chemical exposure, UV light, and many more.
Robust patch to electronics connection
Linxens has a wide experience to deliver customized and robust flexible patch with incorporated electronics for a variety of applications in healthcare.
