Creasing Matrix
APPLICATION

DURAMATRIX Creasing Matrix are fitted to die cutting plates or cylinder jackets in die cutting and creasing applications and act as part of a “make ready” counter die system into which the Creasing Rules end their down stroke and create a fold in the paper or card.
Creasing Matrix is self-locating and therefore ensures precise register between creasing rule and matrix. It also enables guaranteed location of the matrix first time and reduces downtime of the machine.
100% accuracy of width and depth of the matrix provides uniform and consistent creasing.

RANGE

Steel Matrix
For customers accustomed to choosing “self-locating” matrix. Steel Matrix is the most well known and popular matrix type.
Easy identification of Matrix size by colour coding.
How to choose matrix colour:

  • Matrix depth (A) = material thickness (C)
  • Matrix width (B) = 2 x material thickness (C) + rule thickness (D).
  • Height of creasing rule = Height of cutting rule – Depth of matrix steel (0.225mm/0.09”).

Board Matrix
This is the easiest Matrix to introduce for customers using handmade creasing channels.
Easy identification of Matrix as locator is colour coded by the depth of the Mtrix.
Large range of sizes to suit more applications.
Easily cut to size.
How to choose the Matrix size:

  • Matrix depth (A) = material thickness (C)
  • Matrix width (B) = 2 x material thickness (C) + rule thickness (D).

Plastic Matrix
For customers using board based creasing channels.
Newest and most durable line.
Easily cut to size.
Colour coding on base of the matrix allows easy recognition.
How to choose the Matrix size:

  • Matrix depth (A) = material thickness (C)
  • Matrix width (B) = 2 x material thickness (C) + rule thickness (D).
QUALITY

Specially formulated adhesive on the underside holds the matrix in place securely throughout even the long runs but it easily removable leaving no residue on the cutting plate or jacket.
Easily cut and fitted to the die before or after the die is put into the press. No specialist installation or preparation required.
Locator fixed with special light adhesive that ensures that matrix stays in place when locator is removed.
Angled outside edge of matrix to prevent jamming as the paper or card passes through the machine.

AVAILABILITY

Large stocks of all three varieties and two Matrix Accessories available in the following specifications:

Steel Matrix.

  • Strong and durable matrix wall.
  • Narrow width of matrix means that steel based matrix is suitable for tight creasing and small packaging jobs.
  • Board Matrix

Film based matrix means no need for change of creasing rule heights.
Chamfered finished edges avoid snagging of the board during high speed creasing.

Plastic Matrix
Film based matrix means no need for change of creasing rule heights.
Chamfered finished edges avoid snagging of the board during high speed creasing.
Strong and durable matrix wall.
Narrow width of matrix means that plastic based matrix is suitable for tight creasing and small packaging jobs.

Matrix Accesories
Matrix pliers specially designed for cutting and fitting together of matrix strips.
Shim Tapes – double sided adhesive tapes used to “pack out” the matrix for improved creasing.

Succesful application of the Duramatrix:

  1. Clean cutting plates or jacket ensuring all grease and oil is removed.
  2. Cut matrix to required length.
  3. Apply matrix locator to creasing rule.
  4. Remove adhesive backing strip.
  5. Close machine and complete one cycle to allow matrix to affix to the cutting plate or jacket.
  6. Remove locator.
  7. Press is ready to run with matrix in perfect register with creasing rule.
