Südwestkarton strengthens die-cutting capacities again
Südwestkarton GmbH & Co. KG, based in Illingen is logically continuing its investment strategy and has added another flatbed die-cutter to strengthen its machine fleet. This high-end die-cutter is especially suitable for fabricating high-quality transport and sales packaging, and expands the previous die-cutting facilities.
The new flatbed die-cutter has a fully automatic sheet feeder, a power register for sheet alignment with minimum tolerances at the sheet insertion point, and an electronic steering and control unit. The die-cutter is suitable for almost all corrugated board qualities and processes sheet formats from a minimum of 520 x 730 mm to a maximum of 1,300 x 2,100 mm for flute types E- to BC-flute.
Altonaer Wellpappenfabrik makes further investments in state-of-the-art technology
Following investments in an additional rotary die cutter at the end of 2020, Altonaer Wellpappenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG based in Tornesch (near Hamburg) and belonging to the Panther Group will invest further in productivity and capacity.
The central palletiser system for finished goods will be replaced in the spring of 2021. Since the WIP storage system was already fully automated in the whole plant in 2019, renewal of the palletising now allows digitalisation of the entire workflow throughout the company.
