Choosing The Correct Creasing Matrix

Deciding which creasing matrix to use can be a tough task, there are many variables that go into the selection process; job format, rule sizing, board thickness, the operating environment and even user preference can impact the 'best' fit for the job. Thankfully, with the help of our partners at CITO GmbH, we have presented a brief guide below to help you select an optimal matrix based on the job specifications. 

You can calculate your optimum creasing matrix simply and quickly in 2 steps:

Step 1: Choose the correct calculator - either cardboard or corrugated board.

Step 2: Follow the guides presented for the relevant material!

The guide will then recommend you a creasing matrix, suitable for the desired material and material thickness.
