“The KBA-Iberica Optima 106 K die cutter is capable of handling production of paper, cardboard, plastic and corrugated boards up to 1.5mm. It is running at 8,000 sheets per hour. We currently operate it two to three shifts per day, five days a week. Our preference is to schedule all jobs containing detailed embossing and critical print to cut registration on this new machine”Says Dave Ellis President.
The firm has witnessed a 63% increase in throughput and a 32% increase in run speed compared to the last six running months over the previous machine.
