BW Papersystems is all set to mark a significant anniversary for one of its most popular corrugated converting solutions, as its Twin Box Slitter® celebrates 30 years since its launch.
As a sign of its ongoing relevance in today’s fast moving corrugated market, BW Papersystems has confirmed that they have now installed a Twin Box Slitter® at a leading integrated company in Eastern Europe. The unit, which was installed in early January, is running with an existing flexo folder gluer, enabling the customer to significantly enhance the output and productivity of the machine.
The Twin Box Slitter® enables box plants to double the production of flexo folder gluers by running two-up boxes; these boxes are slit by the Twin Box Slitter® creating two boxes. Once the boxes are separated, they are ready to be bundled. This process allows manufacturers with a mid-sized flexo folder gluer to efficiently create a wide range of corrugated box sizes, from very small to large, on one machine with the potential to double productivity at the same time.
“For a machine concept that was developed 30 years ago, the Twin Box Slitter® is every bit as relevant today as it has ever been,” says Mark Taylor, Director of Sales – EMEA, BW Papersystems. “We are delighted to have completed the installation with this prestigious customer and we thank them for their ongoing support of BW Papersystems.”
