One of Russia’s leading corrugated packaging producers, Gotek, has registered some pretty impressive numbers on its GGX rotary die-cutter, which was manufactured and supplied by BW Papersystems a few years ago.

“In the last 12 months, Gotek has recorded productivity of between 74,000 and 77,000 sqm of converted board per 12hr shift, with three operators running the GGX,” explains Marco Angeli, New Equipment Sales Leader, BW Papersystems. “They are running an average sheet size of 1.6 sqm and averaging 10 order changes per shift. But what is really impressive is that they are running from BC doublewall right down to E flute, which shows how flexible a converting line the GGX is!”

We’re thrilled to have partnered with BW Papersystems on this project. BWP’s first-rate products, and the fact the machine was built right here in Wisconsin, made them the obvious choice for this capital investment.
