Firstan invest in a new Bobst Expertcut 106LER cut crease-Blanker
Firstan have invested in a new Bobst Expertcut 106LER cut crease-Blanker.
The new Expertcut 106LER was installed Jan 2017 and is capable of speeds up to 9,000sph. It takes maximum sheet size of 762x1066mm and has a cutting force of 256 tonnes.
The blank separating EXPERTCUT removes the need for the hand stripping of waste and tiresome manual separation of blanks during carton production and will help improve production efficiencies and capacity at Firstan, which last year celebrated forty years of successful supply to the pharmaceutical, healthcare, cosmetics and food industries.
Paul Hartwig, Production Director of Firstan, said “Ensuring that we maintain the levels of service that our customers expect from us means constantly reviewing our production efficiencies. Introducing blanking by bringing in an EXPERTCUT is a way of ensuring that our workflow is as smooth and efficient as possible.”
The EXPERTCUT will be the seventh BOBST machine at Firstan’s plant in Godmanchester, near Huntingdon, and will be their first blank separating die-cutter.
Last year, Firstan celebrated forty years in the industry, during which it has grown significantly thanks to high levels of customer service, professionalism and quality. In 2010 the company moved to its current next generation facility at Godmanchester.
