The Jones Healthcare Group installs a Bobst Novacut 106 ER flatbed die-cutter. The new equipment increases the company’s production efficiency and capacity for complex folding cartons in support of regulated health and wellness clients.
“The demand for more complex packaging continues to grow with the introduction of labelling regulations for over-the-counter drugs and now nutraceutical products sold in Canada,” said Cameron Bramwell, vice-president, customer strategy, at Jones Healthcare. “Our new die-cutter supports our clients’ need for extended content cartons to comply with these packaging regulations, while also opening capacity for new projects. It’s part of a $30-million equipment investment we’re making to strengthen operations across the business.”
The 250-tonne die-cutter increases efficiency through in-line blanking separation and dynamic stripping at high speeds, producing up to 8,000 sheets per hour. The machine provides automatic equipment centring and locking.
The die-cutter is now operational at the company’s facility in London, Ont.
