MHIA To Showcase Prefeeder For EVOL At Corrugated Week 2022 The Corrugating Machinery Division of Hunt Valley, Mary- land based Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America has an- nounced its new and much-anticipated Mitsubishi Pre- feeder for EVOL at Corrugated Week 2022 (Booth #201) on September 19-21 in San Antonio, Texas. The announcement coincides with an important mile- stone as Mitsubishi Heavy Industries America (MHIA) re- cently sold its 200th EVOL in North America. “In close collaboration with our customers, we are con- stantly investing and innovating to best serve their needs for productivity, accuracy, and profitability,” said Shoji Isoai, President, MHIA Corrugating Machinery Division. “The Mit- subishi Prefeeder is the latest technological breakthrough that comes with the ‘vote-of-confidence’ represented by the landmark 200th EVOL sold in North America.” The new Mitsubishi Prefeeder ensures faster through- put and the front-of-line reliability required to keep the MHIA’s premium line of EVOL box-making equipment func- tioning with maximum efficiency. In productive use across multiple facilities in the EU, the Mitsubishi Prefeeder is now available for customers in North America. The Mitsubishi Prefeeder is currently available for the EVOL 84 and EVOL 100 – either 350bpm or 400bpm – or for any equipment that is a top printer. It can run a con- tinuous shingle of either singlewall or doublewall sheets with a minimum sheet of 8.7-inches by 27.2-inches and a maximum sheet of 37-inches by 100-inches and features a lifting device that reverses the sheet stack. “Our research indicates that 50 percent of equipment downtime is caused by auxiliary equipment, with the pre- feeder accounting for 38 percent of that number,” said Isoai. “The new Mitsubishi Prefeeder will dramatically re- duce downtime and maximize the productive of EVOL.” EVOL customers are giving the company high marks across the board. “It’s quite simple – from the MHIA Sales Team, to the Vice President and all the way through to the tech guys – I have never in my life on the converting side had such a good experience throughout,” said Richard Goldberg, VP of Operations, President Container. According to Brian Healy, General Manager, Carolina Container, “The EVOL is a great selling tool for us. Every- one wants to see it and it’s so impressive and it produces such a precise and clean box; it’s the highlight of the tour.” “Listen, we could have bought any machine we wanted but there wasn’t any real conversation about it – it was EVOL all the way,” said Adam Tominsky, General Manager, Rand-Whitney. In addition to the Mitsubishi Prefeeder, the company will also be highlighting the following: • Introduced in 2021, the MC-100 is a state-of-the-art Flexo Folder Gluer that features ease of operation CONTINUED ON PAGE 28
