UK-based Independent corrugated sheet plant Dairi-Pak has recently installed a DYSS X5-1625T digital cutter, supplied by AG/CAD Ltd.
Founded in 1989, the Shropshire business has gone from strength to strength over the years – a consequence of its commitment to continual investment in people and equipment. This policy recently saw the company replace its previous KM sample table with a DYSS X5 machine to provide even better quality samples, in higher volume and with significantly improved turnaround.
Ian Ford, Operations Director, was instrumental in the decision making process, having visited AG/CAD’s showroom for an extensive demonstration. “The X5 is a massive leap forward from our old machine, cutting all our substrates up to BC at high speed and with excellent quality. The creasing in particular was a revelation, with none of the typical liner cracking along flute direction and yet with vastly better defined creases, both with and cross flute,” he said.
The DYSS X5 Dairi-Pak opted for has a cutting size of 2.5 x 1.6m, ideal for typical sheet plant board sizes and was also specified with a clever K-CUT camera system which enables accurate cutting of printed samples when required.
Managing Director of Dairi-Pak, Tim Gray, has always been forward thinking and recognised early on the industry trend for short run production of plain and printed packs to complement the traditional higher volume die-cut runs. “With the high speed of the X5 we can see that it has the capability to be used as more than just a sample cutter and will allow us to explore the possibilities of short run, die-less production as we go forward,” he noted.
