Premier Folding Carton Increases Productivity with Heidelberg Promatrix 106 CS
Premier Folding Carton, a division of SJS Packaging, in Cincinnati, is reaping the cost-effective benefits of Heidelberg’s Promatrix 106 CS diecutting machine. Installed in July, the Promatrix replaced an older, competitive diecutter, and was the first of its kind to be installed in the United States.
One of a Kind
"The Promatrix is exceeding our expectations across the board, and we consistently run at near maximum speeds," Barry Schwartz, president, said. "We have significantly increased our productivity and capacity, and drastically improved our makeready times."
With an output of up to 8,000 sph and short setup times, the Promatrix 106 CS stands for productivity and cost-effectiveness — matching the format of Heidelberg's flagship Speedmaster XL 106 press. The Promatrix 106 CS can handle substrates from 65-lb. text to 48-pt. board, and has a maximum sheet size of 29.92×41.7˝.
Smart automation and intelligent operator support allow for additional time to monitor production and optimize speed and quality control. According to CEO Wayne Signer, its easy operation and reliability are two key elements that make this diecutter stand out from the competition.
"We are prepared to take on any customer packaging challenges," Teri Junker, VP, marketing, said. "Heidelberg’s dedicated team of experts provided a seamless installation, and has been very instrumental in our success. We are extremely pleased with the support we’ve been given by Heidelberg to resolve any concerns and prevent potential issues."
Partnership Pay Off
The strategic partnership between Heidelberg and Masterwork (MK) is specifically designed to provide customers with a well-rounded range of cost-effective postpress packaging solutions.
"Premier Folding Carton is a perfect customer for our Promatrix 106 CS, and we are very excited for their success with this machine," Joerg Daehnhardt, VP, postpress, Heidelberg USA, said. "The makeready automation coupled with its reliable production has proven to be a profitable solution for their business. We are thrilled to have Premier Folding Carton be the first in the U.S. to integrate this diecutter into their environment, and look forward to continuing this partnership."
