Successful SPO = corrugated board certification using tool with CITO material
On 8 November 2022, Bieling & Petsche Stanzformen GmbH was certified for flatbed diecutting corrugated board at the BOBST Competence Centre in Lausanne. This was the CITO GROUP company in Austria’s second distinction as a BOBST Certified Die-Maker; in November 2019 it received certification for flatbed diecutting folding carton.
The team is pleased about the successful test on the MASTERCUT 1.7, which is used for converting corrugated board. The tool used met the high standards of BOBST.
CITO material, high-quality and especially developed for the needs of modern diecutting technology, was installed on the cutting die. The die manufacturer therefore always supplies its customers with top tool quality. By using these cutting dies, the converters can be sure that they will achieve optimum machine performance and produce efficiently.
“The test was run on an SPO. The setting up was carried out very quickly and the MASTERCUT reached its full output of 7,500 sheets/hour after a few minutes. There was no need at all to regrind nicks. The result was great! The certification was passed with flying colours. I am proud of the great team performance.
The certification as a die manufacturer for flatbed diecutting folding carton (SP) has proven to be the right decision. It is an honour for us to now belong to the companies that have both certifications. We have pledged to supply our customers with quality tools with which they are successful.“, said Thomas Gerner, Managing Director of Bieling & Petsche Stanzformen GmbH.
The certification programme initiated by BOBST reflects the cooperation and common goal of BOBST and CITO. With a standardised tooling concept, in which the machine, tool and consumables form a unit, the two global players of the industry want to enable die manufacturers and converters to continuously improve their production processes and to increase their output.
