THE universal cutting rule; excellent bending properties; suitable for 90 % of applications
On december 1st, cutting rule producer Sandvik officially announced its intention to leave our industry. Sandvik has been a well-established name in the packaging sector for several decades. Since the announcement was made at very short notice and the production plant is due to close at the end of February, we can expect an impact on the availability of cutting rules (in the medium term at least).
As one of the two remaining global players in the creasing and cutting rule sector, we have been following developments closely for some time and have increased our stockholding accordingly. This means that even in times of reduced production capacity, we can ensure that our HS CITO rule customers will always receive deliveries on time. Our recommendation is that all diemakers should adapt to the changed situation which could affect them indirectly, even if they have never previously used rules supplied by Sandvik.
