Sharples offers automated bending for paperboard customers. Our skilled craftsmen consistently calibrate and test the equipment to ensure that we operate according to specification.
Automated bending is the best for repeatability, flatness, and consistency, from carton to carton. As proven in the diemaking industry, automated bending is the superior way to knife a die because it can reproduce notches, lengths, miters and bends from simple to complex. With high tech automation in carton manufacturing and filling, a consistent cut carton is a necessity.
We have decades of experience working on miter placement, joints, perf-combo rule placement and working with natural nicks and nicking. We understand carton designs because of our daily experience with carton structures. Our inventory of knife includes a sizable array of rule for the carton industry, such as perfs, zipper rule, glue assist, and various cut-crease combo rules. We also have the ability to make custom cut/crease and to laser-cut a custom perf with our dedicated steel-cutting laser. Carton converters who work with Sharples enjoy the assurance of quality and quick turnarounds.
