Hand rubbering a die is a time-consuming process. The drawbacks on hand cutting rubber can be additional labor hours, uneven ejection, and diminishing quality to the finished carton. Sharples can supply paperboard packaging customers with a uniform cut set of ejection rubber.
Using water-jet cut rubber for ejection offers several benefits: the need for less tonnage, reductions in the number of ejection pieces required, reductions in the number of nicks, and increased press speeds. Endorsed by many in the industry as the superior way to rubber a die, water-jet cut ejection is absolutely the preferred process.
Sharples has moved ahead of the competition by purchasing a water jet with advanced features such as superior software, high speed, and large bed capacity. We can also offer huge time savings to customers who prefer to rubber their dies in-house. Rather than nesting a layout, try using our full sheet. It reduces rubbering labor by at least 50 percent.
