Corrugated

The U.S. company chose the new FFG to serve its expanding customer base

Unicorr Packaging Group has installed a Bobst FFG 8.20 Expertline — a four-color high-speed flexo folder-gluer with diecutting capability — at Massachusetts Container in Marlborough, Massachusetts.

The Bobst 8.20 produces high quality corrugated boxes for almost any industry including food and beverage, consumer packaged goods, e-commerce, appliances and home goods, industrial products, and shipping and distribution. From the automatic prefeeder on the front to the automatic palletizer at the end of the machine, the fully automated system allows for ultra-quick setup time and produces up to 24,000 boxes per hour while delivering reliable and consistent quality.

"As Unicorr's customer base continues to grow, we are always looking for the latest technology and equipment that is best suited to support their growth and serve their varied needs," Matt Perkins, General Manager of Massachusetts Container, said. "The Bobst 8.20 provides additional capacity, speed, quality and dependability, which results in the fast turnaround that today's customers demand."

Unicorr is a large converter of custom corrugated products and protective packaging in the Northeast U.S. As a third-generation family-owned and operated business since 1946, the company manufactures and distributes a wide range of corrugated containers, displays and retail packaging, and protective packaging at six manufacturing facilities and multiple satellite warehouses.
