CITO CREASY Crease measuring device


Our creasing measurement device CITO CREASY enables you to monitor creasing characteristics. It supports you during setup on the press, resulting in superior creasing and a longer service life for your tooling and creasing matrices.

CITO CREASY is a measuring device that optically records creasing characteristics and uses software to analyse these on your PC or laptop. It graphically records the width, height and symmetry characteristics of the creasing and the two folding edges, analyses these and documents them by issuing a report. This guarantees optimised converting on the folding carton gluing machine.

With CITO CREASY and E-Guide Pro 2 you can also measure embossings and debossings of the tobacco industry.

Customer Testimonial

Company: Druckerei Thieme Meißen GmbH
Issued by: Ulrich Thieme, plant manager

We have been using the CITO CREASY since October 2014. The measuring device is used directly on our die-cutter for the purpose of quality control. Thanks to the CITO CREASY, we can check the crease geometries of our die-cut products. We can identify and correct any deviations immediately on the basis of the saved references. This allows us to eliminate the risk of complaints during production. Using the quality reports generated with CITO CREASY, we can document our quality across all runs for our customers too.
