CF Centre Face
The CF-bevel is the most
commonly used symmetric
cutting edge for standard
Standard edge angle: 53°
(others on request)
SF Side Face
This type of cutting edge
is particularly suitable
for cutting hard materials
(gaskets, displays and
close shapes). The minimum
counter bevel facilitates a right angled,
CFDB Centre Face
This type of cutting edge
reduces the cutting force
required when cutting
hard and/or thick materials,
such as glass fibre
reinforced laminates, leather, cork, rubber,
jigsaw puzzles, corrugated board, plastics,
SFDB Single Face
The SFDB profile offers
the same advantages as
the CFDB when cutting
thicker materials. SFDB
has the advantage that
the substrate is left with a square 90° cut edge
and all the distortion from penetration is left
on the material waste. Not available in "G"
Supreme Dust Killer
The Supreme cutting rule was originally developed for the label industry with the goal to restrict the build-up of
adhesive on the cutting edge. This type of rule is now used successfully in a variety of applications.
It has gained reputation for dust-reduction for boards with increased recycled fibre content.
Supreme-coating significantly reduces mechanical wear and tear on the cutting edge thereby considerably
increases the cutting die lifetime.
In the same way the required press force is substantially lowered, which contributes considerably to extending
the life of expensive automatic platens.
By means of a special process the cutting bevel of the Supreme rule is coated with a thin anti-friction-film which
fills the microscopically small pores and marks on the cutting edge and thereby adds to the smoothness of the
Supreme coated rules are offered in Universal and Universal 60.
- dust-reduced cutting
- reduction of press force thus less wear on die cutting equipment
- reduction of friction between cutting edge and cutting material
- substantially increased service life of the die
This all-purpose steel rule from BÖHLER
offers good bendability and is suitable
for low runs.
Cardboard, corrugat ed board, …
has the excellent bending properties of
soft steel, with the long service life of an
extra hard cutting edge and can, therefore,
be universally used.
Cardboard, corrugated board, labels,
post cards, …
combines the body hardness level of
the TOP rule with the advantages of an
induction hardened cutting edge. This
means high rigidity, outstanding wear
resistance and long service life.
Plastic, thin gaskets, foils, puzzles, …
STANDARD CREASE PROFILES
Böhler Plastic-Crease is a special type of
cut-crease rule to produce creasing lines in
plastic sheet material (PET, PVC, etc.).
Conventional Creasing of Plastics:
- Local reduction of folding resistance by decreasing the material thickness, no creasing matrix is used.
- Creased parts may bulge, which create problems in automatic folding and gluing machines.
- Hot-creasing technology gives better results, but is expensive.
- Creased plastic sheets may develop micro-cracks upon folding, visible as milky shades in the material.
- Very localised reduction of folding resistance prevents micro-cracks and “whitening” of the creasing track.
- Plastic-Crease creates less material displacement, creased parts therefore remain flat.
Types currently available:
UNIVERSAL CF, 2pt, in lengths of 1 m
Cut/Creasing height combination:
23,75/23,35 · 23,70/23,30 and 23,60/23,20
Pitch: 25 teeth/inch (tpi)
COMBINATION (CUT-CREASE) RULES
Benefit: no need for inserting individual parts of cutting and creasing rules.
BÖHLER cut-crease rules are produced in standard punched (CF), or in flator
round machined executions for high-quality demands (CF/FT and CF/SR).
BÖHLER perforating rules are available in a wide range of various thicknesses
and tooth/gap combinations. The spacing is usually given in mm.
On request, we also manufacture in point and inch spacings. Minimum gap
width is defined by rule thickness.
Spacer rules fill gaps between steel rules and wider
laser cuts within the die board or backfill unwanted laser
cuts within an existing die. The rules show a square
cross sectional profile.
BÖHLER spacer rules are available in all common
wood sizes used in the die making industry.
