The die cutting for the book-shaped box looks simple, but many experienced designer still often draw the wrong size in the practical work,need to repeated several times to comfirm the accurate box size, not only waste materials, but also take time. Is there a good simple method ,as per which can draw graphic quickly and are also not wrong?

Today Printn-pack contributes a simple and good way to everyone here. Before drawing, first of all draw a good cross section on the computer. Why die cutter figure is wrong, because there is no intuitive graphics and the simple calculation formulas, the error is caused by mental arithmetic directly.

Dimension design for book-shape box

 


1. V groove skin shell, half cut inside box

Manufacturing size calculation:

V groove shell, Head board height and back board height are different.

Head board H+=back board H+-a-0.05mm.

Shell back board H+=inside box H+3a+4t

Shell top cover L+= shell bottom board L+=inside box L +2a+6mm; If the guest request both sides to be level,not need to add 6mm, the length for bottom and top cover are the same as the head board and back board.

Shell top cover W+=bottom board W+=inside box W+4a+4t

Shell back board H+=inside box H+2a+4t, inside box H=H0

Shell top cover L+= shell bottom board L+=inside box L +6mm; If the guest request both sides to be level,not need to add 6mm, the length for bottom and top cover are the same as the head board and back board.

Shell top cover W+=bottom board W+=inside box W+2a+4t

Comments:

1. Manufacturing size (die cutter): Length(L),Width(W),Height(H), outside box use symbol "+".

2. Inside size: Length(L1),Width(W1),Height(H1), outside box use symbol"+".

3. Outter size: Length(L0),Width(W0),Height(H0), outside box use symbol "+".




If the paperboard and surface paper are too thick, Or paper surface is not film laminated, elongation under the influence of water, the above formulas may appear error, you need to correct size, so there will be a correction coefficient.
