TigerPress, a provider of printing, packaging and fulfilment solutions, has purchased a new DuranAllpro 110 Folder Gluer from Koenig & Bauer to boost its productivity.

The new Allpro gluer is expected to enhance TigerPress’s productivity capabilities by 30% in its post-press department.

The speed, efficiency, and productivity of new gluer will be a substitute of two older machines and is expected to handle a wide range of substrates from cartonboard to corrugate.

Koenig & Bauer said that the new Allpro 110 Folder Gluer can produce a complex range of carton styles while reducing make-ready and maximising productivity and profitability.

The Allpro gluers are available in nine sizes from 35 to 185cm width

TigerPress CEO Jennifer Shafii said: “We’ve purchased the new folder gluer to help us keep up with our growth and increase our productivity.

“We’re always addressing our customer’s needs with faster turnaround and the folder/gluer will be key to those requests.

“Currently we have five folder/gluers at our facility and we believe we can replace one or even two of them with our new Omega Allpro, due to its very quick makeready and extremely high-quality production.”

Available in nine sizes from 35 to 185 cm width, the Allpro gluers is capable of producing straight line, double wall, crash lock and optional four- and six-corner with single finger servo back-fold system.

It can also produce inner partition, Z-fold, conical crash lock and CD boxes at a maximum belt speed of 400 m/min.

Shafii added: “It demonstrates our strong commitment to providing the highest customer satisfaction with the latest state-of-the-art equipment.

“Our goal is to continue our strong growth and to provide outstanding quality and unique production techniques including special finishing for our customers.”

Recently, TrioplastNyborg, part of the Trioplast Group, has invested in an Evo XG 8 LR from Koenig & Bauer for printing polyethylene films for industrial packaging.
