Purchased through KBA North America, the new 41-inch, seven-colour sheetfed press is engineered for full UV production and is equipped with in-line colour control. The press is primarily focused on Ingersoll Paper Box’ (IPB) pharmaceutical customers, which account for approximately 75 percent the company’s manufacturing. IPB’s remaining customer base comes from the food, consumer goods, and the health and medical industries.
Located in an 80,000-square-foot plant, IPB also used its open house to feature a recently installed Masterwork MK420Q automatic sheet inspection system, which had been installed in the fall of 2013, as well as a new Agfa Avalon N8-22 and a Bobst ExpertFold system.
Ingersoll Paper Box, a fourth-generation family-owned business, was established in 1922 by Robert Skinner. The company produces folding cartons with standard and custom designs, as well as computer-aided design (CAD), die cutting, embossing, and folding/gluing work.
