SoOPAK.com, a leading North American short-run offset packaging specialist, and its sister firm Beneco Custom Packaging, have boosted their post-press output and capacity significantly with the installation of a new Heidelberg Promatrix 106 CSB Die Cutter with blanking at its packaging facility in Toronto. “We are laser-focused on our customer’s success,” said Carol Jiang, President of SoOPAK.com and Beneco Custom Packaging. “Our commitment to providing just-in-time delivery of their packages is top-of-mind. We remain dedicated to fast turnaround and delivering their custom boxes on schedule. And we are continually investing in new equipment that’ll satisfy those demands. The new Heidelberg Promatrix 106 CSB Die Cutter is an important part of our business. This integral piece of machinery in our post-press department increases our flexibility and expands our capabilities, as we continue to grow our folding-carton business.”
Catering to a variety of businesses that require unique folding-carton packaging, SoOPAK.com and Beneco chose their new, automated Promatrix 106 CSB for its ability to balance the company’s workload and provide necessary flexibility. The Promatrix will help the companies to perform all of their die-cutting and packaging jobs quickly and efficiently for both short-run and long-runs projects. Facilitating fast turnarounds and on-time delivery, the Promatrix CSB features a non-stop feeder and delivery that eliminates stops between pallet changes, while still being able to handle pallets with the typical pile heights found in a folding-carton environment. It offers motorized adjustment of the cutting pressure along with the pneumatic locking systems in the cutting and stripping station to reduce make-ready times. When blanking, tie sheets are inserted to automatically give the pile more stability to be transferred to the next production process.
The new die cutter can handle a huge array of materials and different applications. To accommodate short set-up times, the Promatrix 106 CSB offers several standard features such as central adjustment of rollers and brushes on the feed table, quick lock frame of the cutting station, fine adjustment system of the cutting plate, as well as quick lock systems in the stripping station and the blanking station with additional fine adjustment.
