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 Testimonials

CITO CREASY – Ensures high and reproducible product quality

Netbox PL Sp. z o.oCompany: NETBOX PL Sp. z o.o.

Why did we decide on CITO CREASY?

We bought the CITO CREASY measuring device in 2019. The purchase was preceded by a visit to CITO‑SYSTEM GmbH in Schwaig, where we were able to inform ourselves intensively about the functions of the device. During this visit we were also able to check whether it meets our expectations, in order to verify the quality of our products.

After the purchase and delivery of the measuring instrument, we received online training in which some employees of our company were familiarized with the functions and handling of CITO CREASY. After a few weeks the training was repeated to discuss further questions which arose during the independent application. Thus, we were optimally trained to use the device.

Then the device went to the quality control department. There the employees carried out the quality inspection during the diecutting process several times a day. CITO CREASY is perfectly suitable for checking creasing characteristics on recycled cartonboard as well as on cellulose material made of virgin fibre. With the device, quality control based on a comparison with a standard sample is possible.

Thus, we can always offer our customers a constant and high quality for our products. This is of vital importance, especially for products made of cardboard, which are produced at highest speed on the folder-gluer.

Thanks to the use of CITO CREASY for quality control in the diecutting process, our customers receive guaranteed high and reproducible product quality.

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.
