Die-namic Formes Ltd based in Bradford is a leading manufacturer of high-quality cutting formes. With over 75 years of die making experience, they provide cutting formes to a wide variety of industries, including carton, corrugated and thermoforming.
Making key investments over several years in the latest technology equipment, including high speed laser cutting and automatic rule bending machines, complimented by a powerful CAD design system, has allowed Die-namic Formes to grow and service the growing needs of its wide customer base.
Scott Thompson, Director, Die-namic contacted C&T Matrix to enquire about their need for a new machine that would allow the company to offer an increased range of product services. The machine needed to cover pen plotting for layouts and make ready, sample making on solid cartonboard and corrugated board, as well as the potential to cut rubber on site and provide bespoke pieces of die ejection rubber to suit the individual needs of each cutting forme.
Thompson commented, “I have worked with C&T for more than 20 years on other equipment needs and therefore, they were the perfect company to help us with our enquiry. A discussion resulted in the proposal to look at their CLEARTECH XPRO OC1311 machine, which covers all 3 application areas in just the one machine.”
He added, “This machine appeared to be the perfect product for our needs and following a full machine demonstration a day later, the order was placed immediately with C&T. We are pleased with this machine investment and all the new features and benefits it has offered to our customers.”
