Apparatus for cutting sheet material

Abstract
The present disclosure relates to an apparatus and method for making rigid box blanks from web strips of a desired length or from a continuous strip derived from a roll of board stock. The machine intermittently feeds the strip of material past a pair of scoring rolls that partially cut the web along lines equally inwardly spaced from its edges thereby providing two laterally spaced longitudinally extending score lines. While the strip is at rest transverse score lines extending between and intersecting the longitudinal score lines are produced. Concurrently therewith the web is substantially completely transversely severed along offset straight lines to produce removable rectangular portions which will constitute the corner pieces for the completed blank. Uncut tab portions are provided for holding the adjacent box blanks in strip form. Thereafter the tabs are ruptured to separate the strip into individual blanks.
