Successful Open House in Rahden

From 11th to 13th May,  Kolbus hosted an Open House at its Rahden headquarters in Germany. Around 200 European visitors attended the three- day event and saw new developments demonstrated in luxury packaging, corrugated packaging, and book casemaking machines.

Greg Bird, Managing Director, Kolbus UK, said, “Both the number and quality of key decision makers attending justified the decision to host this event so soon after travel possibilities opened up. The Open House provided opportunities to network and discuss customers industries and businesses. They were then able to see live machine demonstrations and to discuss the new developments throughout the Kolbus range. In addition to demonstrating the range of equipment, the Open House generated orders placed at the event, including several orders for Kolbus Autobox machines from European customers.”

Unveiled for the first time was the Kolbus RD115S flexo rotary die-cutter. The two daily production demonstrations were well received, with many visitors opting to spend more time investigating the advantages the RD115S showed in high-speed corrugated box production.

Kolbus Autobox boxmaking machines were also on show; the AutoBox AB 310 producing folded boxes from single to heavy duty, triplewall corrugated board. The MultiNova MN 400 multi point gluer was demonstrated gluing die-cut boxes which had been produced on the Kolbus RD115S.
