Ellis Packaging has installed a Koening & Bauer-Iberica Optima 106 K Die Cutter. It is the fourth high-speed automated Iberica die cutter at its Pickering facility and has become their  key post-press machine. Since the installation, we’ve seen our net output, which factors in press speed, makeready times, and down time, improve by an impressive 25-30%. Due to the significant improvement in our productivity,
we’ve seen a major increase in the amount of savings because we’re not running the die cutters in overtime.” says Cathie Ellis, president.
