Over 30 years ago we designed the Crusader Converter from the ground up to be the most flexible and precise roll to roll die cutting machine on the market.
This first-of-its-kind machine continues to be the industry leading narrow web die cutting platform for contract converting.
“At Boyd, advanced manufacturing technologies increase our ability to provide our customers higher quality products with tighter tolerances. Our servo driven Crusader presses utilize both rotary and flex die technology to convert multiple layers of material and control island placement inline, ensuring part repeatability.”
Jeff Snedeker, Engineering Manager
