Bridger Packaging has invested in not one, but two, highly versatile Bobst machines at its Letchworth plant. The site has taken delivery of a folder-gluer Visionfold 110 A2 and a die cutter Novacut 106 E Autoplaten to increase capacity, drive efficiency and further enhance its flexibility.
Focused on innovation since its foundation in 1927, the company leads the way in cartonboard packaging. It accommodates all packaging requirements including specialist stand out constructional design, bespoke solutions, litho and digital printing combined with detailed and complex on-pack features to add value and boost product sales. The company has a wealth of expertise in catering for a wide range of sectors, such as food and drink, luxury gift, home and garden, healthcare and automotive.
Lawrence Bridger, managing director, Bridger Packaging, said: ‘With brands, retailers and consumers alike looking for sustainability minded packaging solutions, the demand for cartonboard is continuously increasing. It is a fast growing market and it is imperative that we are able to meet our customers’ needs now and in the future. Alongside this, brands and retailers require bespoke packaging that responds to consumer demands, often at short notice, so there is a definite need for optimum speed and flexibility.
‘We were therefore seeking to invest in our production capabilities with machines that allow us to drive efficiency, whilst continuing to deliver the top quality, highly creative work we are known for. The two Bobst machines provide us with the enhanced efficiency and capacity we required, allowing us to go above and beyond for our customers, even at short notice.’
Visionfold 110 A2 delivers superb smooth and accurate folding, regardless of size, substrate and run speed. Its ease of set up and effortless repeatability means it delivers the same flawless quality each time a job is run.
Capable of processing 8000 sheets per hour Novacut 106 E Autoplaten offers high precision cutting and minimises the need for manual intervention, driving efficiency along the processing line and ensuring consistent quality to optimise the return on investment.
