Bernal Folding Carton Dies
We manufacture a complete line of folding carton dies for both in-line and off-line use (with nearly any type of printing press or OEM cutters).
We pride ourselves on folding carton rotary tooling designed to provide clean-cut and precise creased/scored product or web.
We’re in the business of supplying total converting systems, so we have a complete understanding of the die requirements for the industry. This includes working with you and your team on designing new applications for the ever-evolving folding carton industry.
What Are the Benefits of Our Folding Carton Dies?
- Fastest changeovers in the industry
- Highest speeds
- Reduced scrap rates
- Increased press capacity
- Lowest cost-per-thousand
- Expert die maintenance, repair, and service
Flexible vs. Solid Rotary Dies. What’s the Difference?
There are two types of rotary dies: flexible and solid. Rotary die cutting involves either a flexible or solid rotary die. These dies are both cylindrical dies. A flexible die is made of a thin sheet of steel, and wraps around a magnetic cylinder. A solid die is a solid steel cylinder, and is traditionally used in more long run applications for extended die life. Bernal develops solid rotary dies for converting and product manufacturing applications throughout many industry sectors.
Creasing is an operation which facilitates the folding operation. During this process, the paperboard is weakened along well defined folding lines, which then act as hinges for folding packaging and graphical products. Without creasing the surface, plies...read more
Bernal RP® rotary dies represent a breakthrough technology in the folding carton industry for solid rotary tooling. These dies provide significantly longer die life over conventional rotary dies while maintaining cutting quality and minimizing waste by...read more
Bernal invented the solid hardened rotary die in the late 1960s by creating a wedge-type cutting edge on a solid cylinder through the use of EDM (electric discharge machining). Our proprietary process allows us to precisely manufacture dies, thereby...read more
