FITCHBURG, MA, Aug. 19, 2013 (Press Release) -As part of a dramatic growth in both capability and capacity, Boutwell, Owens & Co. Inc. has recently added a new BOBST MASTERFOLD 110 A2 with a Speedwave GT and HANDYPACK GT semi-automatic collecting table. This will compliment their existing BOBST ALPINA 75 high speed straight-line folder/gluer with Cartonpack, giving Boutwell Owens comprehensive technologies for both straight line and auto-bottom finishing.
"After traveling to the factory to see firsthand the make ready and speed improvements of as much as 75 percent, selecting the MASTERFOLD over competitive equipment was an easy choice," according to Boutwell Owens Vice President of Operations Bill Lorenz. "The addition of the first in the United States fully motorized 'GT' version of the Speedwave enhancement enables us to run crash-lock boxes without the need for hooks, thereby greatly reducing set-up times, increasing run speeds, as well as improving the quality of the product."
Additional features of the MASTERFOLD 110 A2 at Boutwell Owens include the ability to store and instantly recall set-ups for 5,000 jobs.
