CITO exhibited at FachPack in Nuremberg where they shared a stand with Austrian diemaker Bieling & Petsche. Alongside products supplied by CITO, the stand also exhibited various rotary and flatbed dies, which clearly demonstrated the benefits of CITO manufactured products in finished form. For many years now, the two companies have been collaborating successfully and other diemakers may well find this kind of cooperation of potential interest.
The cooperation encompasses a close technical development partnership between the two parties with the aim of developing new materials and techniques and a joint R&D group has been set up for this purpose. Within this project, CITO views itself not only as a development partner and manufacturer, but also as a link between diemakers and the folded box/corrugated cardboard industry. CITO-SYSTEM GmbH supplies to more than to 30,000 customers worldwide in this sector and obviously the requirements of these customers are fed into the development work. One example of the success of this work is the development of special creasing matrices for TOPMATRIXTM dies.
