Title: 3D PRINTED PAPERBOARD CREASING/CUTTING RULE
Abstract:
A cutting and/or creasing rule (10) is produced on a 3D printing machine (12) which may be mounted on a board (14) for use is a die for cutting and/or creasing a sheet of paperboard (1) or other material into a blank (5) for a carton. With the advent of additive manufacturing, i.e. 3D printing, it is now possible to eliminate traditional slotted die boards with generally rectangular steel cutting and creasing rules and replace same with surface printed boards with three- dimensional creasing and cutting rules (10).
