The colour-coded profiles have been specially developed for use on perforating rules, cutting rules and cutting-creasing combinations.


By conforming to EU Regulation No. 1935/2004 for food contact materials, Articles 3 and 17, CITO D/5 is safe for the production of folding cartons for food packaging.


The self-adhesive EasyFix version allows you to precisely position the ejection material on your cutting die, as well as residue-free removal of the rubbering. The surface of your cutting die remains undamaged. Use of activator sprays and super glues is avoided; this means improved safety in your company.

EasyFix

 

The rubber profiles D/5 allow a clean and exact cut edge on the corrugated board and also prevent any cracking of the upper cover liner.

Recommendation

We recommend the various D/5 profiles for optimum cutting results in flat-bed applications, in accordance with the desired wood thickness and application purpose.

Wood thicknessColourApplicationSupernatant at 23.8 mm cutting line
18 mmRoseCutting/creasing and perforating rules0.2 mm
YellowCutting rule1.2 mm
15 mmOrangePerforating rules0.2 mm
GreenCombination cutting/creasing rule0.7 mm
FuchsiaCutting rule1.2 mm
12 mmBlueCutting rules and perforating rules0.2 mm

Using the D/5 solid rubber profile serves to compress the corrugated board during the diecutting process prior to the cutting procedure. As a result, the inner liner (corrugations) lies flat between the outer covers, thus creating a cleanly cut edge. The required D/5 height can be influenced by several factors, such as material quality or diecutting pressure. Our recommended application should therefore be merely seen as a suggestion.

Customer Testimonials NEW

CITO Solid rubber profile D/5 EasyFix replaced all of the A/1 profiles

multistanzCompany: Multistanz
Created by: Ralf Carell

After an intensive test phase, we replaced all of the A/1 profiles with the D/5 profile EasyFix and are have been using it for three months now. One major advantage of the D/5 profile for us is the fact that it is only half as wide as the A/1 at the bottom. One consequence of this is a far better adjustment to the contours of the cutting rule. We can reduce the time for rubber lining the dies by 20 % thanks to this alone.

Another advantage is that the EasyFix profiles are self-adhesive, so the additional process of gluing the profiles with superglue is no longer necessary. By using the CITO EasyFix profiles, we have fewer hazardous materials in circulation and a possible correction of the profile is easy and fast to manage.

CITO Solid rubber profile D/5 EasyFix – EasyFix is an EasyWay ☺

DS SmithCompany: DS Smith Packaging Denmark A/S
Created by: Kim Lykke Nielsen, Packaging Division, Works Fredericia

As one of two internal DS Smith die makers, we are constantly looking for products which also have a health & safety profile. CITO has managed to secure this profile with the EasyFix concept.

As a die maker, it is of utmost importance that we protect our people from hazards arising from ordinary gluing products. This can be done in many different ways, but EasyFix is an EasyWay ☺

We have tested the different color coded D5 profiles with flat bed die cutting and the first results were:

  • No liner cracking on the corrugated board with the correct moisture.
  • Good results when creasing with the flute direction too.
  • EasyFix secured the rubber from falling off as good as ordinary self-adhesive rubber.
  • Extremely wear resistant compared to old type of black rubber.
  • Easy to use in production by the operators – it is just like “Plug and Play”.
  • The top surface of the die is not destroyed when rubber is removed. 
  • This is the case with ordinary glued rubber.
