Kennesaw, GA, Jan. 24, 2013 – Heidelberg’s new CITO PLAST Crease Matrix is the perfect creasing and scoring system for short and medium runs on vintage Heidelberg Cylinder and Platen presses.  

Used on platen and cylinder presses to achieve perfect scores or “creasing,” CITO PLAST Crease Matrix is a metal-based creasing matrix with plastic shoulders, suitable for folding substrates from light paper to corrugated board. The metal base strip is manufactured utilizing a new technology that eliminates separation of the plastic shoulders from the metal base, ensuring maximum stability during the scoring process. This ensures the flawless appearance of the end product after die cutting. Similar products use a less reliable perforation process to adhere the plastic shoulders to the metal base.  

An extremely strong bond between the metal base and plastic shoulders provides additional security and convenient finger-lift handling of the protective paper. The smooth surface reduces optical degradation of the material and leads to higher production output. A familiar color-coding system using “Orange” or “Buff” ensures a seamless transition to this new product. CITO PLAST also is deliverable in off center, reverse crease, hinge crease and double crease versions.
