CEG Packaging choose MultiNova from Kolbus-Autobox

Merseyside, UK-based CEG Packaging Ltd has recently taken delivery of a MultiNova gluer from Kolbus-Autobox. CEG Packaging is a manufacturer of corrugated cases and solid board containers.

Colin Graham, Managing Director, comments, “We approached Kolbus-Autobox as we were finding that our gluing department was limited in its speed and styles. We do a lot of die-cut work here, sometimes three-point crashlock which is a nightmare to convert by hand. The batches would vary each day, so we needed something that was quick to set, easy to use and had a good hourly output. When I visited Kolbus Autobox and saw the MultiNova MN400 gluer, I just knew that it would be an ideal solution for what we needed. I spent 15 minutes in front of it and knew it would transform my gluing turn-around speeds and capabilities. Not only would it run straight-line work around three times quicker than my current gluer, but it was also an easy machine to set for crashlock boxes. Kolbus-Autobox delivered the machine quickly. On our first day, we were running an 0201 at 1,800 per hour. This job normally took us six to eight hours to run. It was done in under two hours on the MultiNova.”

Arran Sethi, UK Sales Manager Kolbus-Autobox, adds, “The MultiNova MN400 is the perfect machine for CEG. I really think it will free up a lot of their operators’ time as well as bring in house more crashlock work.”
