In order to secure the company’s position in its core business of die-cut packaging and die-cut parts, Henningsdorf, Berlin-based Klöde Kartonagen has added a Baysek C-170 die-cutter to its production hall.
The owner, Thomas Wolf, was looking to reduce runtimes and also unit costs, particularly at a time when sheet board prices were rising and the pandemic had impacted supply chains.
“Raw materials have become so expensive since the first half of 2021 but these cost increases cannot be passed on to our customers easily and must be absorbed by saving on labour costs,” says Wolf. “The new die cutter has enabled us to undertake a series of processes on one machine, doing away with multiple processes and expensive hand work. It has been a great decision to install this machine and is opening up new markets for us.”
