The colour-coded profiles are used on the cutting rules to achieve clean and exact cutting edges.

The CITO D/5 Top solid rubber profile is characterised by the larger contact area for optimum fixing the cutting sheet. This means that the tensile forces are minimized at the cut and colour damage at the cut edge is avoided. The result: A perfect cut.

By conforming to EU Regulation No. 1935/2004 for food contact materials, Articles 3 and 17, CITO D/5 Top 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.

Using the D/5 and D/5 Top 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 heights of D/5 and D/5 Top can be influenced by several factors, such as material quality or diecutting pressure.

CITO D/5 Top – a top result: clean cutting edges and insignificant dents

casimir kastCompany: Casimir Kast Verpackung und Display GmbH
Created by: Werner Bindnagel, job planning

We use the CITO D/5 Top as a replacement for a conventional rubber C-profile and are very satisfied with it. With the new solid rubber profile CITO D/5 Top we have managed to solve the previous problem of dents in the material optimally.

A major advantage is also the self-adhesive EasyFix technology. This means that the rubbering can be easily removed from the cutting die without leaving any residues. The positioning of the rubber profiles is simple and easy. We in the job planning department benefit most from that.

The result has convincingly clean cut edges and insignificant dents. The stable sheet transfer ensures a smooth production process. Our employees now only use the CITO D/5 Top due to the simple handling and perfect results.
