Folding cartons are the core business of Italian-based Industrie Grafiche Bressan (Igb) and it is imperative that they have the most advanced folder-gluers available. With this in mind, the company has recently invested in its latest BOBST folder-gluer, the EXPERTFOLD 110 with GYROBOX.
EXPERTFOLD is easy to operate, and allows users to simultaneously carry out other in-line processes, such as Braille embossing with ACCUBRAILLE and quality inspection with ACCUCHECK, making it ideally suited for the pharmaceutical market.
‘After analysing various solutions on the market, the quality of EXPERTFOLD 110 was the best,’ said Alessio Bressan, CEO of Igb. ‘The tests carried out on the machine were very satisfactory as they allowed us to reach high production speeds. Another determining factor was the in-line quality controls. With EXPERTFOLD 110, quality inspection is possible during the production phase.’
EXPERTFOLD 110 is a versatile folder-gluer. Also available in 50 and 80cm widths, the wide choice of modules available allows manufacturers to produce an impressive number of box styles – from small pharma and general food cartons, to large cartons made from litho-laminates – in a wide range of materials at speeds of up to 450m per minute.
Now available on EXPERTFOLD 110, GYROBOX revolutionises the production of complex boxes. Rotating blanks in line between two folding processes, it allows for the rapid folding-gluing of complicated boxes in one single pass. As well as speeding up the production process and boosting its efficiency, GYROBOX also delivers exceptional finished product quality. These are key reasons why lgb decided to invest in this new solution.
‘EXPERTFOLD with GYROBOX is the answer to our needs,’ explained Alessio. ‘The creativity of our Research and Development department requires a system capable of working with any type of folding and gluing system. We really benefit from the flexibility this system offers, as well as its high production rates and precision on technologically complex products.’
