The next Generation X portfolio of cutting rules.
bohlerstrip X-products are the latest innovations and address very special customer requirements. They have been developed together with our customers. You benefit from our extensive metallurgical and steel machining expertise, as well in particular from our application skills in die cutting a diverse array of materials.

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.
