Cube has celebrated the arrival of an Easymatrix 106 CS (cutting and stripping) die cutter, and a Diana GO 85 folder-gluer at its premises.
Cube, a Limerick based printing house, believes that the partnership with Heidelberg will ensure the successful expansion of the business into packaging as well. This purchase marks the company’s first investment into post press packaging equipment as it moves into this sector, planning to grow this side of the business further in the years to come.
‘We wanted to partner with a company with a proven track record over a period of many years, which would be able to provide us with state of the art technology and had the infrastructure and backup here on the ground in Ireland. We wanted someone who would support us as our business continues to grow,’ said James Maloney, operations and finance manager at Cube.
The Easymatrix 106 CS is intended to ease the entry of the company into the production of folding cartons. It converts a huge range of materials into cartons, enabling packaging and commercial applications. The machine can process materials from as thin as 90 g/m2 to board up to 2000 g/m2 and in formats up to a maximum size of 760 x 1060 mm.
The Diana GO 85 is a folder-gluer, suitable for materials such as 200 to 600 g/m2 solid board, E flute corrugated and some paper stocks. It can run a wide range of carton styles including straight line and lock bottom, as well as document wallets, envelopes, CD sleeves and some special applications, depending on the size of the product and the number of folds.
