Independent producer of corrugated cardboard packaging Atlas Packaging has taken delivery of a Bobst Expertfold 230 A4 featuring Accueject XL at its site in North Devon, the first installation of its kind in the U.K., the company explains.

The installation of Expertfold 230 A4 complements existing Bobst machinery at the site, including a Visionfold 145 A2. Bobst explains Expertfold 230 A4 features the Accueject XL device, that when linked with a quality control system, ejects skewed cartons where glue has been missed or not applied for real-time quality assurance.

The investment comes as the company seeks to deliver continuous improvement and enhanced service through its quality and turnaround time to its customers.
 
“This is the latest in a long line of continual strategic investments across the business to ensure we stay relevant for customers and continue delivering consistent, high-quality corrugated packaging solutions,” Atlas Packaging Managing Director Jason Sharman says. “Expertfold 230 A4 drives efficiency and consistency along the processing line, meaning we can produce high quality printed boxes that our customers expect, whilst ensuring the maintenance of delivery times and schedules.”
