Atlas Packaging, one of the UK’s largest independent producers of corrugated cardboard packaging, has taken delivery of one Bobst Expertfold 230 A4 featuring Accueject XL at its site in North Devon – the first installation of its kind in the UK.
The investment comes as the company seeks to deliver continuous improvement and enhanced service through outstanding quality and turnaround time to its customers, ensuring it remains at the forefront of corrugated packaging production.
Atlas Packaging managing director, Jason Sharman, said: ‘This is the latest in a long line of continual strategic investments across the business to ensure we stay relevant for customers and continue delivering consistent, high quality corrugated packaging solutions.
‘Expertfold 230 A4 drives efficiency and consistency along the processing line, meaning we can produce high quality printed boxes that our customers expect, whilst ensuring the maintenance of delivery times and schedules.’
The installation of Expertfold 230 A4 complements existing Bobst machinery at the site, including a Visionfold 145 A2.
Expertfold 230 A4 features the Accueject XL device. Linked with any quality control system, it ejects skewed cartons where glue has been missed or not applied, offering real time quality assurance and greater throughput.
