Bobst SPO-1600 reconditioned by Celmacch
In looking to ramp up its capacity in the die-cutting department, Cricklade, Wiltshire-based GWP has placed an order for a fully reconditioned Bobst SPO-1600 flat bed die-cutter, complete with chase loader, from GTS (Europe) and Vim Selection.
“We have seen a great deal of growth for die-cut products and we needed to increase our production capacity in the die-cutting department,” explains James Pedley, Operations Manager. “The machine has been stripped back to the sideframes and fully rebuilt at Celmacch’s facility in Desenzano, Italy, in co-operation with Vim Selection. It is just like getting a brand new machine.”
The Bobst SPO-1600 can handle all types of corrugated board, as well as Correx, something that helped GWP make their decision. “Correx is a growing market for us, so having a machine that can process the grade efficiently was a real bonus.” He continues, “Choosing this large capacity machine means we are able to consolidate some of our existing die-cutting equipment, to help streamline the department.”
The machine will be installed at the Cricklade facility in late June.
