What is die cutting and creasing?

What is die cutting and creasing?

Die cutting and creasing is the process of scoring or cutting material to create a bespoke shape. Eco – 100% of materials used in die and laser cutting are recyclable, including the waste paper, die forms and metal cutting rules.

What is Cito Matrix?

The classic metal-based creasing matrix with plastic shoulders. The creasing system is optimally suited for use on cylinders and platens for the creasing of folding cartons, corrugated board packaging and displays. Perfect handling due to Fingerlift technique.

How is creasing done?

Creasing can be achieved through a platen method (flat sheet and die board) or a rotary method (paper runs through cylinders or wraps around cylinder). Although scoring can eliminate fiber cracks, as the sheets get heavier a stronger compression force is needed to prevent cracking.

What is the difference between creasing and scoring?

Creasing causes the area of the paper to be weakened so it is easier to fold. Scoring creates a depression in the paper so it is easier to fold.

What is crease in printing?

“To crease“ is to create a bendable zone by shaping the paper or cardboard. The paper is displaced downwards across the crease (see figure), creating a kind of bulge. If the paper is subsequently folded, this bulge bends inwards. The paper’s stability must not be reduced in the process.

How do cutting machines work?

Manual die cutting machines are operated with an easy-to-turn crank or lever and use specialized metal shapes to cut paper and other materials. As the material and metal die pass through the machine’s rollers, it applies pressure and the die cuts the paper or other material into the shape of the die.

How is a die cutting tool made?

A die is a tool made up of wood, steel blades and rubber. The shape for the die is laser cut into the wood and then a highly skilled technician bends and shapes the steel blades into place. What is kiss cutting?

What is perforation in printing?

Perforation is a method that is used in the printing industry to allow two parts of the material to be easily separated, such as allowing the paper to be torn along the line. This kind of printing method is commonly used for coupons, calendars, postage stamps, and flyers.

Is creasing and scoring the same?

Why is my printer creasing the paper?

When your printer’s internal components are dirty or clogged, the paper starts to wrinkle. Wrinkling also occurs when the rollers inside your printer pull the paper through incorrectly. Wrinkling not only damages the paper, but also causes paper fragments to contaminate your printer’s internal parts.

How are the creasing rules placed on the die press?

Once all the creasing matrix are positioned on the creasing rules the adhesive backing tape is removed from the matrix bases. The die cutting plate is then set in the die press with the creasing base plate and the two are pressed together.

How do you use a creasing matrix strip?

The creasing matrix strip is trimmed to the length of each crease rule in the crease pattern and applied over the crease rules in the die cutting plate. The matrix locator grips the creasing rules with the plastic shoulders and the base profile adhesive side facing upwards.

What is the use of creasecreasing matrix?

Creasing matrix reduces downtime of the die-cutting machine by enabling assured accurate location of the creasing rule and creasing base on the first attempt.

How do you use a die cutting plate?

The die cutting plate is then set in the die press with the creasing base plate and the two are pressed together. This transfers the creasing matrix base to the creasing base plate, automatically self-locating, creating perfect alignment between the creasing rules and the creasing channels in the matrix base.
