Quality from body to the edge

Die cutting of cardboard boxes, laminated packaging and components in the electronics industry: Our precision steel rules also enable you to produce at high speed, with first-class quality and under cost-effective conditions. Thanks to excellent cutting performance and minimal dimensional tolerances.

Behind this is leading material and machining technology from Bohlerstrip. It starts with the selection of perfectly suitable steel. It facilitates state-of-the-art core processes such as cold rolling and tempering. And it includes additional features such as special edge finishes and surface qualities.
Through-hardened cutting rules-

Through-hardened cutting rules

Through-hardened rules have the same hardness in body and edge. Our specific tempering and decarburisation process achieves a specific rule structure, with a soft but deep decarburisation zone, which results in excellent bending properties. In general, Bohlerstrip cutting edge and bevels have a shaved finish for highest accuracy.
