Peltpack NV, the Belgium-based manufacturer of industrial packaging, has invested in a compact gluer from KOLBUS-Autobox.
Peltpack specialises in all kinds of industrial packaging made of corrugated board for customers throughout the Benelux. The driving force behind Peltpack is Jacky Cardinaels. He founded the company in 2005 as an agent of Palm Packaging for the Benelux. But due to the expansion in recent years and the need for short delivery times, shorter runs and concept pack development, Cardinaels invested in his own company to meet this demand.
In 2019, Peltpack invested in a KOLBUS Autobox AB 300 box maker and PG gluing machine to be able to quickly deliver customised packaging in small runs. This investment soon brought in much more work and in order to maintain this growth, Peltpack invested in an RS 100 Rotary Slitter and an MN 400 Multinova gluer in 2021.
Nicolaas De Schryver of Kolbus Belgium comments, “The MultiNova (MN400) is such a compact machine. It is very quick to set up, meaning you can put run lengths as small as a few hundred through it, right up to thousands. It is extremely flexible in terms of difficult panel size combinations and FEFCO styles. Equipped with three intelligent glue heads, the MN400 can produce straightline, 2 point tray work and 3 point crashlock bases.”
To further increase the productivity of the Kolbus AB 300, Jacky Cardinaels decided in January 2022 to expand this box making machine with a Kolbus TF 300 Table Feeder.
