Folding carton manufacturer, Oliver Printing & Packaging Co., has added to its portfolio of BOBST die-cutters, choosing to invest in a new cutting-edge MASTERCUT 145 PER.
With sites in Ohio, New York and Virginia, USA, the company is progressing ambitious growth plans as it takes on more competitive, high volume business, requiring faster turnaround times and premium quality. The company supplies the health and beauty, pharmaceutical, food and beverage markets with a range of services including folding carton packaging, in-store point of sale and signage displays, labels, marketing collateral and fulfillment.
Nik Blake, Vice President & Plant Manager, said, “Customers choose Oliver because we are known for our speed, flexibility, reliability and experience. We are responsive and attentive to the bespoke needs of every business we work with. We are currently seeing high volume account growth, so it is crucial for us that the standards that we are well-known for are not compromised during these exciting but critical times.
“We have to increase our capacity and capabilities to stay ahead of the market. Having invested in an EXPERTCUT 106 last year which has generated amazing throughput results, there was only one option for us when it came to supporting the business with new machinery assets; all three of our sites run only Bobst die-cutters.”
Mastercut will be installed at Oliver’s New York site. Offering speed and output, it has an exceptional level of automation to optimize uptime and drive efficiency and productivity along the line. Cutting, stripping and blanking happens in one go and with the SMART FEEDER and cut-to-print POWER REGISTER it delivers superior quality die-cut products.
Dan Rodenbush, President and CEO, added, “We are looking for improved speed, reliability and quality and the machine not only delivers but achieves all three to an exceptional level. After installing Expertcut 106 just over a year ago, all print-to-cut register issues have been eradicated and the machine is handling more than 55% of our die-cutting volume. We are expecting even more impressive results and impact once the new machine is in place. Bobst technology has enabled us to see huge benefits in our die-cutting department in recent years. It is exciting to see such significant advancements and our employees and customers appreciate the investments we have made.”
