Razor sharp knives
We use die-cutting for complicated contours, but for straight lines, regular cutting is faster and cheaper, because entire stacks can be cut together. Cutting is often the start of a process to trim the required cardboard or paper to an efficient size for the rest of the process. Our cutting machines feature automated stackers that place the materials on pallets after they are cut.
We have several different cutting machines at our disposal. All of them are computer-controlled, and most of them feature automated stackers. The waste from the cutting machines is removed by underground conveyor belts. Our largest cutting machine can take sheets of up to 1,850mm; in short, it is a really big machine!
Sometimes, products have to be equipped with holes, for example, to affix an elastic band or to allow for putting them in a ring binder. Die-cutting can be used to create these holes, but this does not work for smaller holes. In those cases, we prefer to drill the holes, processing entire stacks at once. We use a special hollow drill. It sucks the drilled cardboard material up and away through the drill, creating an especially sharp and smooth hole.

Rounded corners are more than just a finishing touch; they often also serve a purpose. Originally, corners were rounded to prevent them from folding and ensure that products remain intact for as long as possible. However, they also make the product stronger. Moreover, sharp corners can be dangerous, especially with products for particular target audiences. On top of that, rounded corners are often used because they simply fit the design better. Moeskops has various machines and knives specifically for creating rounded corners. Thanks to these tools and our specialists’ expertise, we are able to create edgy products.

Cover materials, such as bookbinding linen, are often supplied on big rolls. However, single sheets are needed for processes such as laminating. Our roll cutting machine allows us to process rolls and turn them into single sheets.
- Up to 1400mm roll width
- Max sheets cut at 1050mm x 1400mm
Corner edging is a process that cleans up corners in such a way as to allow us to cover the products with printed material without having to paste the edges of that material on top of one another.

Rounding corners allows us to equip an entire stack of paper or cardboard with rounded corners at the same time, with a diameter of 3-5-9-12-18-25 mm.
