GLEN ARM, MD , April 8, 2019 (Press Release) -SUN Automation Group, a global leader in providing innovative solutions to the global corrugated industry, will announce its continued expansion in the Asia-Pacific region and highlight its popular innovations at SinoCorrugated 2019 in Shanghai, China from April 8-11 at Stand N5A15.
SUN recently tripled the footprint of its Asia-Pacific headquarters in Guangzhou, enabling a 50 percent increase in total production capacity. In addition to the expanded manufacturing area, SUN has increased its engineering and customer support staffing by nearly 40 percent to support the growing customer needs in the Asia Pacific region.
“As a customer-centric company, we take pride in providing the best service and support to our customers world-wide,” says Greg Jones, Vice President of Global Sales and Aftermarket. “As business continues to grow in the Asia-Pacific region, we are well-equipped to handle our customers’ needs. With strong leadership, engineering expertise and a robust service and support team on the ground in China, we are confident our customers will benefit greatly.”
In addition to the Asia-Pacific expansion announcement, SUN Automation Group’s corrugated solutions team will be displaying some of its most popular innovations including its Lead Edge Feeders. Accurate, consistent, durable, and designed to meet the needs of multiple substrates, the Extend-O-Feed Lead Edge Feeder has been utilized in more than 11,000 production lines in 40 countries. The Extend-O-Feed is also integrated into new equipment by more than 40 original equipment manufacturers worldwide.
Answering the demand for greater throughput in higher production environments, SUN now offers its “Double Up” option for customers with a blank length less than or equal to 40% of the machine’s repeat. The “Double Up” option can be purchased with a new SUN lead edge feeder or retrofitted to an existing one.
For top and bottom anvil applications, SUN’s MicroGrind technology will also be on display in the stand. MicroGrind is the industry’s most effective anvil-trimming solution. Its patented technology utilizes a tungsten carbide grinding roll to grind the anvil flat and true. This inventive approach allows the surface to be treated in micro amounts (0.001” or 0.025 mm) automatically with grinding precision every 10,000 impressions without operator intervention. Customers report greater ROI with crisper and cleaner cuts and fewer rejected orders.
Companies across Asia are maximizing efficiencies and minimizing downtime with SUN Automation Group’s innovative solutions, all backed by SUN’s 24/7/365 customer service and support.
“We’re excited to share how the confluence of our technologies, engineers, and support experts bring exceptional value to our growing Asia-Pacific-based customers,” says Jones.
