Jaymar Signs for Varimatrix 105 after 12-Month Review
Jaymar Packaging is replacing one of its two die-cutters with a
Varimatrix 105 after a 12-month review of options. "Many of
the features included in the Varimatrix as standard are add on
options on competitive products," says Craig Street, Director.
The Crewe company produces a wide range of solid board
and litho laminated cartons, primarily for the automotive, DIY and
healthcare sectors. It needed a faster, more flexible die cutter
and it says it has found the solution with the Varimatrix.
"We like the front edge removal, the ease with which you
can change from sidelay to offlay and the preloading which will
allow us to handle laminated work more continuously. This machine
will more than double the speed of output which is a real asset for
our longer run work, jobs of 20-30,000," says Mr Street.
Jaymar, a privately run family company has focused on
investment in its converting facilities over the last two years. It
says that this purchase reflects its confidence in the market. It
believes that quality has to be a given for customers today but
then contract decisions often come down to price and having the
right production cost base is key.
Heidelberg will undertake training when the Varimatrix is
delivered on 20 December 2008. The operators over both
shifts are experienced, however, so this is regarded as a
"The way Heidelberg has handled this project shows just
how seriously they are committed to the packaging market. We have
been very impressed by the enthusiasm, knowledge and advice we have
received and we are also confident of the after-sales backup, which
is an important aspect of any buying decision."
