Cutting-edge CI flexo on paper
Benders Paper Cups in Wrexham, north Wales, are specialist producers of paper cups for hot beverages. Managing director Andy Cunliffe and his team looked for a new CI flexo press to push boundaries in the area of print and quality control, as well as opening new market opportunities, gaining new customers and providing extra capacity for the future. After evaluating four potential suppliers they decided on an Evo XD from Koenig & Bauer Flexotecnica. A raft of factors were behind this decision.
Andy Cunliffe: “With every equipment purchase at Benders Paper Cups there is an expectation for increasing levels of quality from the market, I am pleased to state that we have responded to our client’s requirements with the investment in the Evo XD.” The new-generation Evo XD has a production speed of 450m/min. Automatic reelstands reduce press downtimes and increase output. Improved register controls cut start-up and production waste and the press is equipped with a cutting-edge error recognition system for quality assurance.
