Steel plate and laser cutting technology

C&T Channel Matrix launched its range of 1mm steel cutting plates in the UK five years ago.  C&T can now also offer inhouse plate cutting using the latest laser machinery – giving next day delivery in the UK.

The 1mm steel cutting plates are suitable for many makes of autoplaten including Bobst, Heidelberg, Sanwa, Iberica and Asahi machines.  The plates are available in three different hardnesses – soft 20 Rockwell, medium 35 Rockwell and hard 50 HRC Rockwell – and a range of standard sizes.

Simon Shenton, Managing Director, commented, “Our new inhouse machine offers precision and bespoke plate cutting, further enhancing our extensive plate offering. The quality of the C&T plates means we have quickly captured a large market share with leading carton and corrugated converters worldwide. Customers love the quality of the steel, the accuracy of the laser cutting, and the flexibility of the sizes available, not only for Bobst machines but also for Heidelberg, Masterworks and other leading press manufacturers.”

As a group, C&T International sells plates around the world and in the UK, has become a leading supplier. The most popular product sold is the 35 HRC 1mm plate, but other qualities, such as 48/50HRC which come in a range of thicknesses, are also in demand.

“One of our advantages is that we can now make customer specific plate designs to order – this is something very few competitors can offer. We also promote our consignment stock policy to larger end users where we are happy to put stock on the floor of the customer, ensuring they never run out of product,” concluded Shenton.
