BOBST Launches SPEEDPACK Automatic Packer For Folder Gluers Bringing new automation and productivity to folder-gluers, Mex, Switzerland based BOBST has unveiled the SPEED- PACK, its latest innovation for the packaging industry. The automatic packer, suitable for the EXPERTFOLD 145/165, EXPERTFOLD 170-350 and MASTERFOLD 170-350, can handle all types of boxes, whether corrugated or litho-lam- inated, from straight-line, 4&6 corners, to crash-lock bot- tom. Folded and glued boxes are automatically counted, stacked and banded perfectly, delivered and ready for palletization. “With Speedpack, converters can realize the full poten- tial of their Bobst folder gluers lines in terms of both quality and productivity,” said Pierre Binggeli, Product Line Direc- tor Folder Gluers, BOBST. “This novel innovation combines a range of patented features designed to take the strain out of the packing process and reduce waste, while at the same time optimizing operational accuracy and efficiency. We believe automated technologies and processes are key to enabling progress and future-proofing the packag- ing industry; Speedpack is representative of this vision.” BOBST claims that Speedpack brings a multitude of benefits to operators and enhances the return on invest- ment for manufacturers and converters. Providing the highest possible number of batches per hour and with short set-up times, it can increase folder-gluer productivity by up to 25 percent, without compromising box quality. The automated process eliminates the need for ma- chine operators to bundle batches together and carry heavy loads to offline bundle-strapping machines. Bobst says that workload is reduced by up to 60 percent, as the complete line can be managed by one operator and the risk of injury, including Repetitive Strain Injury, is removed. Highly ergonomical, Speedpack is easy and safe to use on the production floor. Large clear safety doors provide complete access and visibility to the whole machine for setting and production. Added Binggeli “Speedpack is a versatile peripheral that provides converters and manufacturers with greater control across the workflow, helping them to become more flexible and agile – critical in today’s fast-paced industry.”
