Initially purchased to work in tandem with its newly-installed HP Indigo 30000 digital printing press, Kalas Packaging has found other uses for its recently installed Omega Allpro 70 folder-gluer, manufactured by Duran Machina and supplied by UK & Ireland agent, Friedheim International.
Managing Director of Kalas, Jonathan Padley explains, “Our core business became focussed on horticulture about eight years ago and we are now one of two dedicated companies offering special products in the sector. The business is all about turnaround times – days not weeks – hence the decision on the HP Indigo press, ably supported by the Allpro.”
He continues, “However, the gluer is so flexible that it is also proving its worth tackling products destined for the pharmaceutical and healthcare markets, some of which are bespoke and this has come as an unexpected bonus. Apart from its build quality and reliability, another reason why we chose the Duran folder-gluer is its in-line Braille facility, which is not available in this configuration on most other similar types of machines.”
