Speedy Crease, Exclusively from AmeriKen
Faster Makeready and Press Speeds! Longer Lasting with More Precise Creases!
The unique ramp design eliminates taping of the edges, combine this with the aggressive adhesive, and you have faster makeready times and less downtime of the press.
The exclusive ramp design and tapered channel flies the sheet through the press at maximum speeds. The tapered channel reduces sheet breakup and bead channel snagging, and also reduces the stress and abrasive wear of the upper corner of the channel, extending the life of the matrix and maintaining crease performance from carton to carton.
Speedy Crease is available in both “metal” and “plastic” sizes. The sizing chart outlines both metal and plastic sizes, along with crease rule heights for whichever size matrix you select.

Ken-Score is easily cut, mitered, and positioned! Its matrix is reinforced with a flexible steel base for optimum strength and wear resistance. To install, fit the removable locator over the creasing rule. Close the press and Ken-Score easily self-locates and adheres to the cutting plate. Powerful adhesive holds the matrix securely and accurately in place. No creeping or slipping. And there’s no tedious make-ready.
At the end of the run, the matrix removes easily without adhesive residue. Among its many advantages, Ken-Score matrix is tapered to allow smooth, uninterrupted feeding of any material being diecut. Ken-Score assures uniform, split-free creasing as never before!
Ken-Score features beveled edges and a new channel section manufactured to exacting tolerances from an advanced thermoplastic polymer. The double-sided adhesive system from 3M offers exceptional initial tack plus adherence strength to rigidly hold during production runs of any length. Yet, when the matrix is removed at the end of the run, it lifts away cleanly without any residue on the platen.
The universal patented locator easily fits on several rule sizes, eliminating the need to carry excess inventory.
