The Future of diecutting


It was the swedish professor Dr. Calvin Sören from the “Royal University of Stockholm” who first made investigations on the behaviour of corrugates cardbord during the diecutting process. During the investigation all disadvantages like tears, splittings at the cutting lines, much more dust and problems with the nicks, were confirmed.

 

Convetionel die cutting - the result: splitts and bruises

 


It needed further tries to solve these problems. Therefore it is necessary to fix the material properly during the cutting process. So there is no more need of channels. All the results of the investigations and the rigt solutions are focused in TopMatrix. This new technologie, which will be standard within the next five years, offers you a higher quality, a higher market value, a higher crease quality, least splitts and bruises, and reduces dust.

Diecutting process with TOP MATRIX
Perfect cutting edges reduce dust up to 70% . With conmvetional dies you get about 500 gramms of dust after 67.500 blankings. Using TopMatrix you get the same sum of dust after 917.000 blankings! Isn’t this incredible.


Least splitts an bruises of the corrugated cardboard. A comparison
Higher crease quality without using channels or counters.
Less and smaler nicks Using TopMatrix you can easily use reduced materials. Picture: 2 x 125g tesliner 3, corrugated 105g.


Double-flute
Specially the use of double-flutes causes high tensions because of its high material movement. The results are splitts ans bruises. TopMatrix reduces them to the minimum. The volume of the material remains and the cutting edges are hardly squeezed.
