MHI recently held an Open House event for its Japanese customers at its manufacturing facility in Mihara, Japan. The main focus of the event was to showcase the latest EVOL 100/400 flexo folder gluer, which is now available for Japanese and US customers. This machine has the ability to run at 400 boxes per minute. Over 200 people attended the event at MHI’s headquarters, with a few European customers who had recently placed orders in attendance as well.
“We had a decent number of visitors and it was the first time we promoted our new MHI pre-feeder,” states Giovanni Bettini, Sales Director of MHI Europe. “This new pre-feeder, which is a new design from our engineers in Mihara, will allow the EVOL 100/400 to operate at a maximum of 400 boxes per minute, making it the most highly productive casemaker in the world. Once the CE Certification has been confirmed, we will be able to offer it to European customers as well.”
Mr Bettini concludes, “We will be hosting another event later this year specifically for European customers, in late September or early October, where we will offer the opportunity to see all the latest developments from our company, including the new EVOL 115 Dual Slotter with pre-feeder and Dual Box Slitter. Invitations for this event will be sent to customers in Europe in due course.”
