Staffordshire, UK-based Swanline Group have increased their gluing and taping capacity. In March 2023 they took delivery of a Lamina 2200 GL Gluer with tape applicators and feeder options.
After an on-site demo, the Lamina was chosen as it offered the best value due to it being two machines in one. The twin operator system allows two jobs to be run simultaneously, meaning left and right feeding can be glue/glue, tape/tape or glue/tape, size permitting. The gluing element applies straight-line glue beads making it perfect for simple boxes and display work. The blanks are hand fed with glue being applied automatically, then folded over and pressed making a finished box. The sheets for taping can be hand fed also but this machine also has a movable feeder for longer runs and can easily be attached. In addition, the twin tape heads are set in series meaning two lines of tape can be applied close to each other for e-commerce work.
Dave Salt, Production Manager, Swanline, says, “We are looking forward to our new Lamina machine becoming a great asset with a small footprint. It will increase our POS gluing and taping capacity and by using the detachable feeder it can also be used for longer run e-commerce jobs.”
The machine was sold by Lamina’s UK & Irish Sales Agent, Neil Thayer of Finishline Machinery.
