Nottinghma, UK-based Midlands Regional Printers Ltd has confirmed its new Sanwa 1060 S.C.B. Axia die-cutter and blanking machine is now fully operational. The sale was handled by Neil Gaskin and the team at Sanwa, including installation and training.
“This machine gives us far greater die-cutting capacity within our packaging division and this will run alongside our existing Sanwa die cutter,” explains Steve Bates, Managing Director, MRP.
The Axia is designed for die cutting and blanking both solid and corrugated boards and has a running speed of 8,000 sph. It has edge-to-edge registration accuracy and automatic feeding, giving MRP far more versatility, productivity and efficiency.
“We believe this machine will offer far greater options to our existing customers, improve turnaround times and also open up new markets,” continues Bates. “Going forward, we foresee huge growth in this area with our clients looking for environmentally friendly options and moving away from plastic.”
