C&T Channel Matrix is pleased to announce recent improvements to its Reverse Bend Matrix which now features an improved and flexible locator with additional sizes. Designed to fulfil the increase in demand for a reverse bend matrix, this product is ideal for converting board, corrugated and fluted materials across all types of packaging or point of sale applications.
Unlike traditional products, C&T’s Reverse Bend prevents cracking problems associated with full ink coverage by creasing from the unprinted side of the sheet. The design also means that concertina folds are now possible in one pass, avoiding the need for two separate passes. This improves registration of the creases and prevents potential damage to the sheet which a second pass may create.
The new improved locator has been developed by C&T Matrix and features a flexible design. This enables the locator to fit an even greater variety of rule widths (between 1 mm). This gives a better fit over a wider range of creasing rules, allowing an increased tolerance between the rules. Furthermore, additional sizes have been added to the range as the result of specific customer requests.
Simon Shenton, managing director at C&T Matrix, said: ‘Over the last 18 months Reverse Bend sales have grown, especially in the corrugated and packaging sectors, not just here in the UK but globally. We have observed the growing need, expressed by customers, for a superior reverse bend product. The new locator gives an improved creasing result, over a wider range of rules, and is ideal for solid areas of print, eliminating cracking issues.’
Reverse Bend is available in several sizes with both standard and extra strong tapes. All reverse bend products are 75 cm long. UK stock enables quick delivery over an extended range of types.
