Arizona-based Tucson Container, part of the California Box Group, has purchased a 66” x 115” three color Kolbus Hycorr rotary die-cutter.
The machine will have an updated Kolbus feed section with servo-controlled drive technology, the latest operator-machine control interface, and Kolbus 3.60 remote diagnostics. It also features a slit and score section and Serrapid quick change die-mount cylinder. Installation is planned for Q1 of 2022.
The partnership between Tucson and Kolbus Hycorr dates back to 1998, when Tucson and West Texas sheet plants purchased their Hycorr 66” x 85” and 66” x 115” rotary die-cutters with sheet stackers from Hycorr Machine Corp.
“Tucson Container’s changing demands of current customers led us to look into purchasing a new machine,” said David Alvarado, General Manager, Tucson Container. “We decided to go with another Kolbus Hycorr, due to their service, reputation of reliability and the success we’ve had with our first two Hycorr die-cutters.”
Chris Widera, President, Tucson Container, added, “Our confidence in Kolbus America came from comparing the performances and specifications of our eight rotary die-cutters in operation in our five plants to the current market and machines.”
