BOBST Announces Launch Of SPEEDPACK

BOBST Announces Launch Of SPEEDPACK
SPEEDPACK is a revolutionary corrugated-box packer that gently picks up boxes as they exit the folder-gluer and batches them up in the right way, quickly and reliably, while preserving the quality of the boxes.

‘We have listened to what our clients say they most need to optimise their folding-gluing machines and SPEEDPACK delivers exactly that. We believe it sets a new benchmark in this space,’ said Jacques Reymond, head of product marketing of business unit sheet-fed.

Thanks to its fluid operation, its minimal footprint, optimal ergonomics and accessibility, which render set up times for repeat orders negligible, this robust packer can process any type of box, while maintaining quality. What’s more, the machine is completely modular, making it a future-proof investment that can grow with a business.

‘The machine will help to reduce costs and optimise quality and line efficiencies, enabling a rapid return on investment,’ said Emilio Corti, head of sales of business unit sheet-fed.

BOBST presented SPEEDPACK for the first time at a FEFCO technical seminar in October 2017.
