Saica orders six machines from Koenig & Bauer Celmacch

Saica Group has invested heavily in corrugated converting machinery from Koenig & Bauer Celmacch. Starting from Summer 2024, six new lines in total will progressively go into production.

Four machines of the highest performance-class series, ChromaCUT X Pro, will be installed in England, Portugal, France and Italy. Two further machines of the Chroma HighTech series will be delivered at different locations of the Group in Spain. One of the two Chroma HighTechs is equipped with the latest technology by Koenig & Bauer Celmacch: inside-outside printing.

“We are one of the biggest corrugated producers in Europe and we want, of course, to grow further, but at the same time we want to forge ahead with our quality and automation in the different sites,” says Herve Dehaynin, Technical Coordinator, Saica. “Now, with Koenig & Bauer Celmacch, we have a supplier that has, in its portfolio, the right machine we need for all of our locations.”

Luca Celotti, Head of Sales, Koenig & Bauer Celmacch, adds, “It is really a great advantage that we have, at Koenig & Bauer Celmacch, such a wide machinery portfolio with different automation and performance levels. Our Customers get in touch with us and they can freely decide which machine model perfectly fits their order structure.”

Saica has been cultivating its partnership with Celmacch for several years. A variety of machines by the Italian OEM are already in use in different sites throughout Europe.

“Even if the four ChromaCUT X Pro for Saica have partially different configurations, short set-up times through quick job changeover and automation, as well as a simple and intuitive use, were the common, main focus for all the projects. Through a perfect cooperation both with Saica and with our colleagues from Italy, we created a diversified overall package,” adds Hannah Potrawa, Director – Corrugated, Koenig & Bauer.
