Speedpin: eradicating the need for bottom pins

C&T Channel Matrix, one of the leading manufacturers of creasing matrix, introduces Speedpin to its portfolio of products for the die cutting industry.

This patented and tested pin is currently being used by many folding carton companies in the UK and Ireland, it offers converters a reduction in pre make-ready time and improves conversion efficiencies.

Speedpin is fitted in the female stripping board by the die maker and completely eliminates the need for stripping frames and bottom pins, thereby saving time and increasing machine efficiency. It also means no waste is left hanging on the bottom pins and therefore less potential stoppages. Doing away with the pin frame dramatically reduces make-ready time as there is no need to fit the frame into position or align bottom pins to the male stripping unit.

Simon Shenton, managing director, C&T Channel Matrix, said, “Speedpin has proved a huge success with those converters who have adopted this new system using it as it represents an innovation in the stripping process.”
