Carton Crease Proofer (CCP)
- Produce laboratory crease samples
- All rule and die combinations
- Reduce machine downtime
The Hanatek Carton Crease Proofer (CCP) allows the user to produce production quality crease samples without committing valuable machine time.
The instrument can assist in checking ink and coating flexibility. The CCP comes complete with commercially produced rules and dies which are identical to those used on a full sized cut and crease machine.
Carton Crease Proofer Features:
Optimise Crease Settings
The Hanatek CCP allows the user to produce production quality crease samples without committing valuable machine time.
The Carton Crease Proofer comes complete with commercially produced rules and dies which are identical to those used on a full sized cut and crease machine.
These can be used to identify a crease with the optimum mechanical properties and cosmetic appearance.
Control Substrate Quality
Important substrate properties can be easily compared before printing and converting.
- Check for coating cracking
- Produce production quality creases and predict carton run-ability using a Hanatek crease and board stiffness tester
Determine Ink and Coating flexibility
The CCP is used in the in laboratory to develop flexible coatings that resist cracking on commercial cartons.
Samples prepared using the Hanatek Crease Proofer can be tested using the Hanatek Carton Force Analyser variable sample size instrument. Board stiffness and crease recover can be tested.

Who measures board stifffness and crease resistance?
Board stiffness and crease resistance are important measures that indicate how a finished carton will run on an automated glueing, filling or packaging line.
Substrate manufacturers, printers, converters and any manufacturer who fills or packs products in cartons can use this measurement to optimise production.
QA departments use these instruments to check the running attributes of finished cartons are prior to conversion and filling, reducing lost production time from slow running or difficult to convert packaging.
