Dukart choose CLG 1005 - Fourth Lamina machine installed

Based in Trbovlje, Slovenia, Dukart d.o.o. has recently increased its production capacity, following the installation of a new Lamina CLG 1005 folder gluer line. This is the fourth machine to be installed at the plant by Boras, Sweden-based Lamina System AB.
The Lamina Glueline is a fully automatic non-stop folder gluer for one piece or two piece boxes. The machine works with two heavy duty vacuum controlled belt feeders which feed in the one or two pieces. By using Lamina’s registration system and non-stop feeder, the machine is effective for two piece boxes. The Glueline can work with hot-melt, cold glue or a combination of both. The machine feeds in one or two pieces into the two-piece registration unit after applying glue and then continues to the next station for folding and gluing. The Glueline is built in modules that can be separated for full access during set-up and offers a choice of units depending on requirements.

Gluer for Interwell - Semi-auto machine offers improved ergonomics

Part of the Lamiflex Group, Nyköping, Sweden-based Interwell AB develops and supplies complete packaging solutions in many different types of materials to the manufacturing industry. Most recently, the company installed a Gluer 2.2 2OP with two glue guns and one tape applicator. The machine was supplied by Lamina System of Boras, Sweden in early November.

“With a strong demand for intricate and bespoke packaging solutions, a lot of our production was done by hand,” explains Bo Johansson, Production Manager at Interwell AB. “This is not particularly ergonomic, so we visited Lamina System to look at what they might be able to supply to help us automate our production. Following the visit, we ordered a semi-automatic gluer to improve efficiency in production and provide better ergonomics in the work environment for our operators.”

KEP Installs Lamina Blackline 1620

Tamworth, 12 June 2017 – To keep up with the high workload due to business growth, KEP Print Group, Ltd. has installed a high-speed Lamina Blackline 1620 FA 1600/800 to replace their eight-year old Lamina 1620 FA 800/500.

Faced with increasing sales and a laminating machine that was running at maximum output, Managing Director Mark Plowman knew he needed to invest in a faster laminating machine. “We were running our old Lamina in 24-hour shifts to keep up with the demand,” Plowman explained. “The new machine runs nearly four times faster and has shorter make-ready times, so our previous 24-hour workload can be done in one shift.”

The Tamworth-based commercial print company, located 14 miles northeast of Birmingham, started in 1979 as a small family business with one press and operated out of a garage. Their growth was exponential, and today KEP employs 120 people and works with some of the UK’s biggest brands. KEP specializes in commercial print work, including point-of-sale, and operates an in-house cardboard engineering department, making the print company a one-stop-shop for all retail print needs.

The new Lamina Blackline 1620 is a high-speed fully automatic sheet-to-sheet laminating and mounting machine and produces high-end corporate retail packaging and POS advertising display materials.

Among the Blackline’s advantages compared to their old laminator includes more accurate registration, a speed of up to 5000 sheets/hour (versus the previous machine’s 3000s/h top speed), and a higher capacity feeder, allowing full pallet quantities to be loaded into the machine.

“With the higher capacity, we spend less time loading the machine,” stated Plowman. “It also uses the latest computer technology which reduces our set up times for each job and leads to a higher quality end product for the consumer. We’re excited to pass on quicker turnaround times and the best products to our customers.”

Grafiche Omnia, historic graphic and paper converting company based near Milan, founded in 1929 and taken over in 1980 by the current owner, Vasco Casini, has always been at the fore- front in terms of investment in innovative production technologies to achieve the highest qua- lity for products. In the headquarters of Cologno Monzese (MI), where the company is present with 6 halls for a total of 7000 square meters in addition to the commercial offices, there are prepress production departments, offset and digital printing, bookbinding and converting department for a total of 60 employees and a fleet which now has about hundred units.
The company serves primarily customers that belong to the fashion industry and, working with international brands, the business area involves different countries of the world, from USA to Japan, from Russia to United Arab Emirates. The family company is managed by the owner, Vasco Casini, his wife Lyda and their sons Francesco and Federico. The strength of Grafiche Omnia is the ability to produce high quality products, maintaining in-house all the processing steps. This allows a control of the product quality and cost optimization. MilanoCartonBox is the name of the converting division of Grafiche Omnia which recently made considerable investments, expanding the area of 2000 square meters, and investing in automatic machines for the production of covered boxes, an automatic line for the pro-
duction of high quality shopping bags and a laminating machine by Lamina, a Swedish company represented in Italy by Alessandro Bardes.
The machine chosen by Grafiche Omnia is the high pile FA 1116 model, with belt conveyor and automatic collection. Offered as standard equipment with the cold gluing system, accor- ding the specific request by Grafiche Omnia, the laminator was also equipped with the devi- ce for hot glue. As for all the models of laminators by Lamina it is guaranteed the perfect grip- per and gauge register and the geometry of the rollers allow the laying down of a thin and uniform layer of glue on the entire surface of the sheet. This allows to obtain excellent results in terms of finished product, even with low weights of the support and laminating sheets. “We are particularly proud of this installation, as Grafiche Omnia operates in an extremely high quality market, therefore all production facilities must always guarantee the best, both from a manufacturing and quality point of view. Besides, the demand of hot glue devi- ce makes this installation unique of its kind, since not many companies need it”, says Alessandro Bardes. In addition to the traditional wide range of products that Lamina can laminate (support sheets with 250 g/mq up to 10 mm of thickness, including simple wave, and top sheets from 100 g/mq and more), it is possible to use natural/organic glue: these features make this machine suitable for the whole range of laminating works, particularly when you require an excellent quality of the finished product.

Folder Gluer - CLG

The ability to glue together our packaging solutions is of critical importance to all our sites, but our Manchester site was experiencing a particularly high volume of work which required investment in this area of its operations.

As a result a Lamina Crash Lock Gluer CLG 1812 was commissioned to meet the needs of customers, provide gluing flexibility and fulfil shorter lead times.

The compact gluer is a fully automatic folder gluer that is equipped with a non-stop suction belt feeder and a variety of guides and belts to handle standard one-point glued boxes or three-point glued crash lock boxes. Furthermore, set up times are as little as ten minutes with capabilities for 10,000 pieces per hour. The simple batch separation system makes it a very operator friendly machine and supports the site in improving it efficiencies and KPI’s.

“The Lamina gluer was particularly appealing due to its easy set up requirements and the ability to maintain high quality products whatever the quantity required,” said Gary Hargreaves Managing Director Boxes and Packaging (Manchester). “The installation of the Lamina gluer has been a great success taking just three days to install and two days of training before the machine was fully operational. It will support us in our continued drive to increase our customer portfolio in the North West region.”
