Make-Ready Time

Market impact

As a result of shorter intervals and changing packaging designs, batch sizes in die-cutting cycles are becoming smaller and smaller and warehousing has to be avoided as good as possible. This leads to a large increase in so called re-orders using the same tooling which then has to undergo make-ready time and time again.

The biggest cost driver within the die-cutting process

The make-ready is known to be the one of the most influential cost factor within the die-cutting process because the step-by-step approach to a perfect die-cutting result is essential. Especially tooling layouts with complex and multiple ups, such as cigarette packaging can result in long downtimes. The process duration during make-ready (manual patching with tape on the patch-up sheet) therefore offers the greatest possible scope to reduce costs. The bohlerstrip X-PRESS cutting rule is an advanced development of the standard cutting rule designed to reduce make-ready.
