White Rose Cutting Formes, one of the UK’s largest die shops, has significantly expanded its production capacity with the installation of a Serviform LineA next generation high-end bender. Supplied by the Partwell Group, the LineA is built for speed – being 30% faster than previous Serviform bending machines. This latest investment, which complements the business’ existing Serviform Eco Plus and Serviform Eco Giant bending machines, further enhances its manufacturing throughput and order turnaround times.
The Serviform LineA can bend 1.5pt, 2pt, 3pt and 4pt material up to a height of 32mm. This advanced bender uses a new locking device to ensure the steel rule cannot move during the bending process thereby offering tighter bending and improved accuracy. The broaching unit uses a broaching wheel rather than a needle and the nicking module has six wheel sizes on a spindle. Additionally, a complete set of special cartridges allows the creation of special rules such as punched revolver nicks. The LineA’s SDDS software has been developed for ease of use and its ability to interact with existing networks.
Fully equipped to handle all requirements from a basic one-up profile through to complex card and carton cutters, White Rose Cutting Formes specialises in the design, development and production of cutting dies for the printing and packaging industries. Commenting on the LineA investment, Phil Turner, Managing Director said: “We are delighted to extend the Serviform family with another new addition that will increase our production speed and productivity massively”.
Matthew Woodhouse, Sales Development Manager at the Partwell Group added “Serviform continues to develop innovative die-making machines that bring tangible benefits day in, day out to the shop floor. This investment in the latest Serviform bending technology is testament to the benefits delivered by White Rose Cutting Formes’ existing Serviform benders since their installation.”
