Midland Regional Printers to add new die-cutter

UK-based Midland Regional Printers have confirmed the upcoming installation of their first blanking and die-cutting machine, a Sanwa 1060 S.C.B. Axia.

This new machine will enhance the die-cutting capacity of the Nottingham-based packaging manufacturer, and will work in conjunction with their existing Sanwa, Heidelberg Easymatrix and platen die-cutters.

Catherine Tew, Marketing Director, Midland Regional Printers, stated, “This latest investment marks a significant moment in terms of growth for Midland Regional Printers. We have been working with brands to redesign their plastic packaging into cardboard due to the consumer appetite to reduce single use plastics.”

The Axia is specifically designed to die-cut and blank solid and corrugated boards with a running speed of 8,000 sph. It boasts edge-to-edge registration accuracy and automatic feeding, providing versatility, productivity, and efficiency.

Matt Seaford, Sales Director, commented, “The new machine will enable improved lead times for our existing customers due to the blanking, and open up new markets thanks to improved efficiencies. This is ideal for our customers moving their packaging back from the Far East.”
