Coveris enhances capacity with hat trick of new installations
Coveris has taken delivery of a new Novacut 106 E and secured Bobst a further two machine orders on the back of the die cutter’s success at its Wisbech site.
Alongside Novacut 106 E, Coveris has signed a deal to install an Expertcut 106 LER and a Visionfold 110.
Trevor Storr, site manager at Coveris Wisbech, said: ‘We have an excellent strategic relationship with Bobst investing in a number of its machines already. Having evaluated the options available to us, we opted for the performance we know and can count on. We consider Bobst a trusted name. These investments will drive our efficiency along the processing line, meaning we can continue to deliver innovative packaging solutions in volume to our customers and maintain the consistent quality that our customers have come to expect from us.
‘With changeover time decreased by 50% using the Novacut 106 E die cutter, our net output has increased significantly, whilst maintaining the overall quality of our products. The two new machines will support the installation of Novacut 106 E, strengthening our position as a full Bobst house.’
The investment in Novacut106 is part of a long term strategy to support business expansion, whilst ensuring quality and turnaround requirements of customers are exceeded. The machine offers the ability to die cut all types of products and materials in one productive, ergonomic, cost effective package.
Capable of producing between seven and nine million sheets per year depending on substrate and average run length, based on eight hour daily shifts, it delivers high precision cutting whilst minimising the need for manual intervention; changeover time has been cut by approximately 50% when compared to the company’s previous machines, an SP102 E and SP102 CER, resulting in a dramatic increase in output based on the varied work mix at the site.
Capable of processing up to 9000 sheets per hour, the Expertcut 106 LER is designed to maximise productivity and optimise machine uptime, whilst reducing waste and costs. The Visionfold 2 offers enhanced smooth and accurate folding, regardless of size, substrate and run speed.
