The demand for folding cartons in Europe is on the rise. Europe Paper Packaging Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% between 2021 and 2026. [SB1]
Madern has been awarded a new wide-web project for the converting of cartons in the food-market. Vital to this project is the ability of Madern its high efficiency converting solutions in combination with our OEM-partners. Our RiRo Rotary Die-cutter sits in the heart of the production line where the cardboard is converted into blanks. Depending on the product design the process of creasing, embossing, punching and/or cutting is applied. Folding cartons can be converted with speeds of up to 450 meters per minute.
Where traditionally folding cartons are converted in sheet-fed operations, this converting centre has chosen a web-fed operation for both printing and converting. The increment in efficiency and automation will have the benefits of i.e. reduction of waste and material handling, decreased change-over time between converting jobs (increased OEE) and minimized handling and operator involvement of Rotary Tooling.
We are prepared for the future in Europe’s packaging demands, are you?
