Established in March 1983
Crosspak Limited is a UK manufacturer of flatbed cutting formes / die cutters. These are
used to press out corrugated board to produce packaging, cartons, and point of sale
displays. We also produce cutting formes for producing gaskets, foam, various thin plastics
and even carpet patterns. We also offer a reknife and repair service for existing cutting
Most of our cutting forme production starts with a design process using the latest Kasemake
software. Our production then moves on to our automatic rule bending machine and CNC
router. This enables accuracy and quick turnaround on orders of cutting formes. This
machinery, combined with high quality plywood, steel rule and ejection rubber used in our
process, makes us proud of our finished product.
At Crosspak Limited, we pride ourselves
in our quality, reliability and offer a quick turnaround on cutting forme manufacturing. We are
happy that we can offer these high quality materials used in our production whilst remaining
competitive. Our experienced team at Crosspak Limited are delighted to still be supplying
cutting formes to customers we first knew nearly thirty years ago!
In March 1983, Crosspak began cutting forme production working from a small unit in Clay
Cross, Chesterfield. Traditional die making processes were used, such as hand bending
of steel rule and hand cutting of plywood. After approximately five years, the business was
expanded and moved to a more spacious premises in Hasland, Chesterfield. The larger
work space was essential in keeping up with more modern processes involved in Cutting
Forme / Die Cutter manufacturing.
From the year 2000 – 2004, the company focused on
investment in modern Die Making machinery. Our first major investment of this period was
the purchase of the Serviform Unica bending machine. This was followed by the addition of
a 2500mm x 1500mm Pacer CNC router. Both these purchases were a major advance in our
manufacturing techniques, meaning quicker turnaround of cutting formes and the ability to
work to much tighter deadlines.
