Baysek To Install First C-170 Die Cutter In Poland

Nelsonville, Wisconsin based Baysek Machines has con- firmed the sale of its first C-170 die cutter to Combinath, a corrugated board converter based in Torun, Poland. Founded in 1998, Combinath employees 65 people and produces a wide variety of packaging in multiple sectors, including food packaging and luxury packaging, which was one of the main reasons for choosing the C-170. The machine will feature an optional single-face corrugat- ed attachment that will allow Combinath to produce in- terior packaging for the cosmetics and luxury packaging industries. “We have always liked the Baysek die cutter and its versatility,” said Joanna Wyrwas, General Manager, Com- binath. “One big benefit of having this machine is the nick-

free, multiple-out die cuts which will improve both our pro- ductivity and expansion plans. After we saw the machine in a live production environment and saw the machine’s capabilities, we knew this was our next investment”. Combinath invested in a Baysek C-170 to produce interior packaging for customers in the cosmetics industry.

“The servo-driven C-170 is the perfect fit for Combinath and their business model,” added Robert Jess, UK & Europe Sales for Baysek. “We have included the optional sin- gle-face attachment to their machine which will give them additional flexibility to expand their product portfolio. The machine will also give Combinath the capability to handle higher volume packaging runs and increase capacity even further.” The C-170 will be installed Spring 2022. Coors Light To Exchange Plastic Rings For Paperboard Coors Light has announced that it’s ditching the plastic rings on its six-packs. In a recent blog post, the company said it plans to tran- sition away from the six-pack plastic rings by 2025. It plans to replace them by the end of 2022 with a cardboard wrap that is recycla- ble and sustainably sourced. “Our business, and Coors in particular, has a long history of using packaging inno- vation to protect our environment, and to- day we are building on that rich legacy,” said Molson Coors CEO Gavin Hattersley. “Just as Coors led the way by pioneering the recycla- ble aluminum can, Coors Light will lead the way by moving out of single-use plastic rings in North America.” Molson Coors said all of its 30 brands will eventually use the same packaging. Coors said the cardboard packaging is already in use in the United Kingdom, where last year it eliminated single-use plastic from its major brands, such as Coors and Carling. Visit for more.
