In an effort to significantly increase throughput and add high-end printing capacity, Advance Packaging Corp. has successfully linked two state-of-the-art machine lines to run as separate off-line processes, operating simultaneously as one unit. The line has been trademarked “BentLine Technology” and is the first of its kind in North America.
Peachtree Packaging & Display, a Lawrenceville, Ga., manufacturer of custom, semi-permanent/corrugated and permanent point of purchase (P-O-P) and Direct to Consumer Graphic & Experiential Packaging™ solutions, has recently increased its capabilities with the acquisition of a five-color Göpfert Evolution HBL (high board line) dual diecutting press.
The machinery park at RRK Wellpappenfabrik in Bottrop, a Panther-Group factory, was expanded in late 2017 with the addition of a fully automated rotary die-cutting line. The machine in question is a Göpfert three colour Evolution rotary die-cutter. As a result, two comparable converting lines are now available to RRK Wellpappenfabrik, which has significantly expanded the site's capacity. “In the interests of rising customer demand for quality and quantity, specifically from the food sector, this investment consolidates the delivery reliability of finished products at the highest level of quality,” stated Carin Hilmer-Brenzinger, Panther Packaging.
Wenn sich so eine Firma in ihrem neuen Vorzeigewerk Holledau dann für eine Göpfert Ovation 13/21 entscheidet, kann das als eine Art „Ritterschlag“ angesehen werden. Die Postprint-Maschine kommt mit einem Göpfert Prefeeder und Bogenableger und wird somit als Offline-Version bezeichnet. Unabhängig von dem Stanzvorgang kann sie so ihre Maximalgeschwindigkeit von 14.000 Bogen pro Stunde voll ausspielen und liefert genug hochwertig bedrucktes Material, um mehrere Stanzen zu versorgen.
The growth of the global footprint of DS Smith has been noticeable since Miles Roberts was appointed CEO in 2010. The latest news that he has been recognised as RISI’s CEO of the Year possibly comes as no surprise, especially considering the aggressive move into the USA with the acquisition of Interstate Resources Inc. However, prior to this, Roberts led the company on a series of acquisitions that would see DS Smith enhance its presence in key European markets.
