Circle is an independent leader for rotary slit board. Our rotary slitting operation is the most accurate in the industry producing panels as small as 4″ and as large needed. The machines run calipers ranging from .055 pt. to .150 pt. and it is the most accurate way to convert board with tolerances held on squareness to .00075″. We ensure these tolerances are maintained by visually inspecting and checking each stack of board for dimension and squareness.
Circle’s round cornering equipment gives clean accurate round edges to the panels we produce. Typically used in 3-ring binders for vinyl sealed or laminated covers our round corner board is held to the same high quality standards as our other board products. Any of our board grades can have a round corner finish for any application.
Circle’s Grooving capability goes beyond the industry standard “unitized board” or “routed board” and produces a product with a higher level of quality and performance. Our “V” groove technology is used in specialty packaging applications by companies that want a sharp edge to promote their brand and separate themselves from the crowd. Circle also has the capability to produce a wider “Flat Bottom” groove that can be used for products that may require a softer look. Our unique process produces the cleanest and deepest groove available for maximum flexibility, sharp or soft looking edge.
Other applications include: carpet/flooring sample books, digital print canvas frames, chipboard easels, box wraps, slip case, binders, custom marketing pieces, or specialty grooved projects.
Circle produces over 1 million chipboard pads a day! Our cut to size chipboard pads are the cleanest in the industry and our cutting methods produce the most accurate and square chipboard pads possible. With up to an 85” cutting blade there are very few jobs that Circle can’t handle on our trimmers.
Our ability to create Pasted Chipboard allows our customers to create unique packaging solutions for their applications. Heavy caliper chipboard is a great “Green Alternative” to using wood or other materials and Circle Inc. can produce board as heavy as your application requires. We can also produce Cross Grain sheets that provide excellent stiffness in each direction of the sheet. The even glue application combined with the 62” press section gives the flattest most reliable pasted chipboard due to curing under pressure.
Circle’s band saw cutting is an excellent converting method for high volume and efficient converting of Roll Headers. Our equipment can convert diameters up to 68”. With minimal set-up and high efficiency our saws allow us to handle high volume as well as smaller orders. Combined with our die cutting capabilities, the band saws give Circle the ability to produce a wide range of Roll Header products.
Circle has die cutters to meet the needs of many applications. Our innovative die cutting systems have the capability to convert a range of materials from wood, steel, leather, fabric, rubber, paper and more. Machines have large beds that utilize a die up to 75” x 84” to accommodate almost any job. The nature of our machines combined with excellent die making means our tolerances meet or exceed most industry standards. Circle is the leader in heavy caliper die cut chipboard, rubber flooring, and many other die cut applications.
Our innovative die cutting system provides:
Corrugated, solid fiber, chipboard, Circle Lite, specialty board, rubber, wood, steel, leather, fabric, paper and more.
