As you may already know we have been producing packaging for over 20 years but more seriously so over the last decade.
Each time we face a bottleneck we have an opportunity to either invest in yourselves or outsource to other suppliers.
As many printers are trying to jump on the bandwagon and ‘become’ packaging specialists(!) we have long since produced everything in-house but reached a bottleneck in terms of our box gluing capacity.
Research began in 2020 – somewhat slowed by the pandemic, which also limited factory visits. But the decision to invest was made in early 2021 and after a long process of testing we decided upon the best machine for our work mix that will give the best quality for our clients.
So with an order made we arranged our own shipping container, installation and training to ensure we could create the capacity required asap for our clients and the new gluing line arrived!
This adds some new product types to our list of services, including crash-lock based cartons, oversized cartons, and the ability to glue fitments, it is designed for high production speeds and we have the option 3 spray heads for intricate glue dots and small crash-lock formats.
It has some interesting features ( if you are that way inclined) such as built in pre-breaks, correction unit and vibration feeder…
For those of you who don’t care, it glues boxes, very square and very fast!
We are very proud to be investing in the future of our clients, our company, and our team here at Short Run Packaging from Remous Print, with short runs not just what we can offer.
