Univers40

Universal 40

Bohlerstrip UNIVERSAL 40 are robust against heavy load in die cutting due to increased body harness, e.g. solid boxboard, corrugated board, labels, postcards.

Hardness
Body ~ 390 HV (40 HRC)
Edge ~ 640 HV (57 HRC)
Bendability 2pt Shaved
∠=70°,R ~.35 mm
Thick. 1.5, 2, 3, 4 pt.

Bevel finish
Shaved, Ground, Polished
Universal60

Universal 60

Bohlerstrip UNIVERSAL 60 combines the body hardness level of the TOP rule with the advantages of an induction hardened cutting edge. This results in high rigidity, outstanding wear resistance and long service life. It is excellent for cutting materials such as plastics, synthetics, thin gaskets, foil and jigsaw puzzles.

Hardness
Body ~ 450 HV (45 HRC)
Edge ~ 640 HV (57 HRC)
Bendability 2pt Shaved
∠=80°,R ~.4 mm
Thick. 1.5, 2, 3, 4 pt.
Heights 22.00-100.0mm
Bevel finish
Shaved, Ground, Polished
Universal75

Universal 75

Bohlerstrip UNIVERSAL 75 cutting rules offer excellent stability and wear resistance which is required when die cutting heavy materials such as gaskets, laminates, metal foils, various plastics, as well as abrasive materials.

Hardness
Body ~ 525 HV (51 HRC)
Edge ~ 670 HV (58 HRC)
Bendability 2pt Shaved
∠=90°,R ~1.7 mm
Thickness 2, 3, 4 pt.
Heights 22.00-100.0mm
Bevel finish
Shaved, Ground, Polished
Extra

Extra

This cutting rule was designed to die cut thick, rigid and abrasive materials such as gaskets, plastics, composites, solid board books, wood, etc. Bohlerstrip EXTRA cutting rule offers extra high edge hardness resulting in long service life along with deep
hardening for best stability in the die cutting process while maintaining good bendability.

Bendability 2pt Shaved
∠=90°,R ~1.7 mm
Thickness 2, 3, 4 pt.
Heights 22.00-50.80mm
Bevel finish
Shaved, Ground, Polished
Supreme

Supreme Dust Killer

Initially Supreme coating was developed for die cutting of labels, to prevent glue sticking on rule bevel. Many of our customers experience reduced dusting when using Supreme coated cutting rules due to lower edge/bevel friction. At the same time knife lifetime is extended.
Product Information:
The cutting bevel of the Supreme rule is coated with a thin anti friction-film which fills the microscopically small pores and marks on the cutting edge and
thereby adds to the smoothness of the bevel surface.
Supreme coated rules are offered in Universal and Universal 60.

Special Characteristics:

  • reduces friction between cutting edge and cut material
  • dust-reduced cutting
  • reduction of press force
Tinit

Tinit (Tin) Long Life

TIN coated cutting rules are coated with a thin TiN layer of approx. 0.002 mm on the cutting bevel only. The TiN coating hardness with 2,400 HV stands out in comparison with standard UNIVERSAL edge hardness of 640 HV (4 times harder).
Bendability, body structure, cutting profile and dimensions remain unchanged and match with standard UNIVERSAL rules.

TINIT rule benefits:

  • significantly increased knife lifetime
  • productivity gains due to fewer die changes
  • same bendability as uncoated cutting rules
  • reduced dusting due to smoother bevel surface
  • increased wear resistance when cutting abrasive materials
