  • ZARAGOZA, Spain, Sept. 2, 2019 (Press Release) -
  • Saica Pack has purchased state-of-the-art converting machinery to offer advanced print and packaging solutions
  • The top-of-the-range model provides unrivalled printing, die-cutting and folding of corrugated cardboard packaging
  • Features include up to six-colour high quality post printing and a rotary die-cutting facility for retail ready packaging

Saica Pack has delivered a multi-million pound investment in the South West – giving customers access to the latest innovations in packaging manufacturing.

The corrugated cardboard packaging expert has installed a state-of-the-art flexo folder gluer from BOBST at its Thatcham site.

The three-in-one machine is designed to produce all types of boxes from standard RSC up to full die-cut and high graphics to give customers a wide-range of options for packaging design and manufacture.

Kevin Thomas, Regional Director, Saica Pack South West, said: “As a business we continually innovate so our customers can too.

“This investment will enable our customers to access state-of-the art packaging solutions including advanced printing capabilities and colourway options whilst giving them the benefit of greater flexibility and streamlined manufacturing processes. This, coupled with Saica Pack’s award-winning in-house design teams provides customers with the complete end to end packaging solution.”

Able to work with corrugated board and a wide range of flute types, the flexo folder is high graphics ready, printing boxes of up six colours including varnish. Other benefits include the multifold – an advanced functionality that allows the production of two or three ups in one pass.

Kevin added: “Saica Pack is committed to the development of sustainable packaging solutions. This new equipment will enable us to continue pushing the boundaries of design and manufacture and we look forward to sharing these benefits with customers existing and new.”
