Rand Whitney adds Engico

Rand Whitney have confirmed the installation of a new Engico jumbo rotary die-cutter at one of its facilities in North America.

Installed in February, Rand Whitney says the Engico will provide them with increased converting flexibility. The Engico is a dual size jumbo rotary die-cutter equipped with both 66″ and 99″ die-cutting cylinders, effectively acting as two machines in one. It is able to run a variety of common items such as regular slotted container, end and side slotted trays, one piece folders and five panel folders with no tooling. The machine can glue, stitch and tape in line, making converting bulk bins and other large double or triple wall items much more efficient.

“Our team is excited at the possibilities this provides our customers,” said the company in a statement. “In the past, large format packaging was not easy to come by, but now our customers can utilize just-in-time delivery. The machine will be converting single, double and triplewall board to support packaging of all strengths and sizes.”
