Die Future Group (DFG)

The Die Future Group was founded on 21st September 2012.

The aim of this team is to develop products and new methods to enhance and improve diemaking technology. The group meets regularly to set the priorities for these projects. These could involve new components or even new processing technology. The aim is to improve the benefit to customers using cutting dies or to enhance processes during production of these tools. Any new components which arise from this development work for cutting dies, stripping or blanking tools are marketed worldwide by the company CITO‑SYSTEM GmbH.

The CITO R&D team is currently made up of 13 staff members including mechanical engineers, materials scientists, print technicians, packaging engineers and experienced specialists who come from all sectors of the print and packaging technology industries. CITO has simulators and the most advanced measuring technology at its disposal. The Die Future Group has created its own logo which will be marked on products from the resulting development work.
