TRM Packaging, the UK’s leading independent corrugated packaging manufacturer, has completed the installation of a £2.5 million state-of-the-art BOBST Mastercut die-cutter.
The 1.7m flatbed die-cutter features the latest generation camera controlled technology to achieve market leading print to die-cut registration accuracy of less than 1mm that complements the award winning high quality print being produced by the company’s seven-colour flexographic printer.
Trevor Maund, chief executive at TRM Packaging, said: “This investment means we will provide corrugated packaging with an exceptional on shelf appearance that will boost our customer’s in-store presence.”
The new machine also increases the flat bed die-cut capacity of TRM’s factory by 50% thanks to its automation and exceptional processing speeds, providing the company with the ability to produce even more packs for its customers.
The completed installation of the Mastercut is part of a year-long £4m investment programme to raise the overall capacity of the site by 25%.
Mark Ryan, TRM innovation manager, added: “I am excited by the potential of the new die-cutter which gives me the opportunity to come forward with a new generation of ideas for our customers.”
