Cullen Boosts Converting Power with New Folder-Gluer Duo from BOBST

Scotland’s largest independent corrugated packaging manufacturer, Cullen Eco-Friendly Packaging, has extended its product portfolio and increased capacity and production reliability after investing in two BOBST EXPERTFOLD 165 folder-gluers.

The double EXPERTFOLD investment builds on a long-established partnership with BOBST as Cullen already operates two BOBST die-cutters.

“As a company, we are committed to a programme of investment that allows to us to be at the forefront of corrugated manufacturing, while significantly increasing volume over the next five years to meet demand,” said Ryan Kelly, production director, Cullen. “The purchase of these two EXPERTFOLDs has enabled Cullen to increase our production of high-quality packaging innovations for our customers, whilst simultaneously achieving multiple operational benefits.”

EXPERTFOLD 165 is one of BOBST’s most popular folder-gluers. Designed as a modular machine, it can reportedly handle a wide range of corrugated or litho-laminated boxes and can be equipped with a variety of peripherals and devices to offer packaging converters super versatility and enhanced performance. It delivers advanced feeding, accurate pre-breaking and a smooth, accurate folding process that minimises fishtailing and gap variation, ensuring high throughput and exceptional finished product quality.

Following a series of new efficiency-boosting features in 2020, the EXPERTFOLD 165 reportedly offers up to 15 percent setup time reduction, and improved flexibility and accuracy with corrugated packaging. Additional command panels have been incorporated at each stage of operation, enabling greater control along the full line and reducing changeover times.

The ACCUFEED was upgraded to include a new pneumatic locking feature for feeding ramps and the integrated blank aligner was innovated to have wider conveyors for perfect quality folding on heavy flutes. Meanwhile, on the folding section, customers can now opt for larger folding belts, a heavy-duty central conveyor and a dedicated pressing device, specially developed for double wall board.

“The improvements that have been made to the latest EXPERTFOLD 165 translates to more versatility and reliability in what we can offer our customers,” added Kelly. “The implementation of these machines, has helped streamline our manufacturing process providing a number of commercial gains including higher throughput, less downtime and increased product quality.”
