Display UK, which is part of the Smurfit Kappa Group, confirms the installation of four 20.30 Bickers Turbo Gluejet. Two were installed at the site in Corby and two at the Wetherby site. These machines, which were installed during 2020, mean Display UK now has a total of seven Bickers Gluejets across the group in the UK and Ireland.
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Bickers were able to carry out two installations in June, then two more in December, quickly and safely using Jan Stevens, the company’s UK based engineer.
Jonathan Arthur, Display UK General Manager, said, “We purchased the XY glue plotter from Bickers to improve social distancing and increase production on our FSDU and POS work. Safety, speed and consistency are among the features that impressed us”.
Neil Thayer of Finishline Machinery, Bicker’s UK & Ireland Sales Agent, added, “The Gluejet is proving popular, with 60+ machines installed in the UK and Ireland with many more ordered for 2021.”
