It was also a great opportunity to see many of the new range of machine parts such as cutting plates, chase plates, bottom stripping frames and pins in production.
Howard Mead Commercial Director for C&T adds “it’s always great to see Bob and Herman so we can return some of the hospitality the team in the USA has shown us when we are over visiting.

C&T Channel Matrix, the world’s leading manufacturer of creasing matrix, has extended its wide range of rubber profile products with the addition of Open Cell sheet rubber and EPDM profiles and sheets.
Both new products are targeted at die makers and will complement C&T Matrix’s extensive range of extruded profile rubbers for use in both solid board and corrugated applications.
Open Cell is sourced from a reputable European supplier and is colour coded for Shore hardness. It is available in one and two sided skins and varying heights. EPDM is a soft rubber particularly suited for the corrugated market and is available in both sheet and cut profiles. It is ideal for flatbed and rotary dies.
Simon Shenton, C&T Channel Matrix, Managing Director; “C&T Matrix takes great pride in offering a comprehensive range of profile rubbers. The addition of these new sheet ranges will further strengthen our portfolio and is part of our ongoing strategy to reposition C&T Channel Matrix as the leading ‘one-stop’ provider for all corrugated convertors, carton producers and print finishers”.
C&T Channel Matrix, the world’s leading manufacturer of creasing matrix, introduces SPEEDPIN to its portfolio of products for the die cutting industry. This patented and tested pin is currently being used by many folding carton companies in the UK and Ireland. This product offers converters a reduction in pre make-ready time and improves conversion efficiencies.
SPEEDPIN is fitted in the female stripping board by the die maker and completely eliminates the need for stripping frames and bottom pins, thereby saving time and increasing machine efficiency. It also means no waste is left hanging on the bottom pins and therefore less potential stoppages. Doing away with the pin frame dramatically reduces make ready time as there is no need to neither fit the frame into position nor align bottom pins to the male stripping unit.
Simon Shenton, C&T Channel Matrix, Managing Director; “SPEEDPIN has proved a huge success with those converters who have adopted this new revolutionary system using it as it represents a true innovation in the stripping process”.
