Flatbed steel rules

It is the performance that makes the difference. 

The better is always the enemy of the good. Premium is always more than optimum. Things that were state-of-the-art yesterday have maybe become the standard today. This is the reason why we at bohlerstrip permanently strive to push the limits. In close cooperation with our customers we develop new, innovative solutions and make them real.

Bevel Finish

To cater for the full range of applications, bohlerstrip offers a large variety of bevel finishes.
Shaved edge (S)-

Shaved edge (S)

The standard variant of Bohlerstrip cutting rules is a precision drawn, quality surface cutting face. It exhibits excellent bendability as well as height stability.
Sharpened edge (G)-

Sharpened edge (G)

For cost efficient cutting of plastics, rubber, laminates and coated materials a standard ground cutting edge has proven the best choice. For these applications we recommend our high frequency hardened cutting rules in standard ground execution (UNIVERSAL 40, UNIVERSAL 60 and UNIVERSAL 75). The ground cutting edge results in cleaner cutting faces, less knife wear and easy material penetration at the same time reducing the cutting force. For thermoforming jobs we recommend UNIVERSAL 60 “G”.
Polished edge (P)-

Polished edge (P)

Polished cutting rules combine the benefits of shaved and sharpened rules into one in terms of surface quality. With the particularly smooth bevel surface, you have:
  • reduced levels of dust 
  • less friction, hence reduced cutting force
  • improved cutting behaviour when die cutting ductile materials such as synthetics, film and laminates
  • excellent workability due to outstanding bendability
  • rounded transition from edge to base body
Finely ground rules (X)-

Finely ground rules (X)

These cutting rules are processed on a unique grinding machine applying razor blade technology, ensuring a super sharp cutting edge with superfine ground bevel (RA = 0.08 μm). Such properties are mandatory for professional die-cutting of delicate materials.
