C&T’s toughest quality cutting and creasing rules give superior die performanceJanuary 11, 2021
C&T Channel Matrix (C&T) is the official distributor of the GNU cutting and creasing rule range in the UK. Made in Germany to exacting specifications, GNU is precision engineered to give great accuracy to cutting and creasing and measurements of rule height.
The superior quality and dexterity of the GNU range is helping to improve the productivity of cutting and creasing substrates such as corrugate, plastics and recycled board. For example, recycled substrates require razor-sharp rules to reduce problematic fibre debris associated with cutting recycled boards. GNU’s longevity and precision design can also minimise make-ready times, and reduce waste often created by deteriorating or inferior products.
Speciality rules, manufactured for corrugated substrate conversion (both for rotary and flatbed dies) as well as folding carton conversion, are becoming essential to meet ever-challenging carton and box designs.
The GNU speciality range consists of (wavy edged, deckle edged, jigsaw, zipper cutting rules, stripping, and perforating rules) and cutting rules (DUROFLEX hardened cutting edge for sharp bends) and creasing and laser creasing rules. The GNU range is distinctive in offering a range of specialist rotary rules for cylinder cutting and creasing.
Simon Shenton, C&T Channel Matrix, Managing Director commented: “We have seen significant increase in demand for the conversion of more demanding media which has driven new developments in cutting rule technology. GNU’s quality enables the conversion of more problematic substrates and helps to reduce waste and improve conversion performance. We have been representing GNU for the last 3 years and are confident that it will stand up to any European competitors in terms of performance power and longevity.”
GNU rules are available for next day UK delivery and C&T offers comprehensive customer support with all its products through its team of industry experts.
