Heidelberg Adds Features to Diana Smart Folding Carton Gluers, Extends Portfolio to include 45” Option


  • New options include 4/6 corner module, ejector and larger format.
  • Compact Diana Smart shares same uncompromising commitment to quality with Heidelberg’s Diana X folding carton gluers.

Kennesaw, Ga., – Heidelberg’s Diana Smart series of professional folding carton gluing machines features attractive new options, as well as a new model in a 45-inch format size.

Based on the proven and successful Diana X model range, the Diana Smart boasts a compact footprint and the same uncompromising commitment to quality that characterizes the Diana X folding carton gluers. Important elements like the feeder and pre-fold section are identical to the X Series. New features include a compact 4/6-corner box module, and an inline blank ejector module that removes defective cartons from the machine one at a time in the direction of travel. With its expanded portfolio, Heidelberg is now in a position to address a wide variety of its converting customers’ requirements from entry-level to high-end production.

As You Like It

With a maximum machine speed of 1,476 fpm, the gluers of the Diana Smart series are well suited for a variety of production applications in the 21”, 31” and 45” format ranges. Special options are available to address specialty cartons (like double-wall cartons, multi-compartment cartons, miniature cartons, mailing envelopes and record sleeves), in addition to the standard carton designs.

The feeder alignment station, shared with the successful Diana X, ensures precise feeding of the blank for accurate processing, while the long compression and delivery section ensures optimum glue adhesion. The modular Diana Smart can be combined with Diana Inspection and the Diana Braille module. It also can be equipped with a prefeeder, stack turner and a packer.

Diana Ejector

The Diana Ejector Module removes defective cartons from the machine one at a time in the direction of blank travel—unlike rotating disc systems. This enables higher speeds and enables specialized and very small cartons to be removed from the manufacturing process reliably. The ejector can be triggered either by the Diana Inspection Module or any third-party glue detection or barcode verification system. Until now, the ejector was available only on the Diana X series, but is now also featured on the Diana Smart.

“This is an important step in completing our gluer portfolio. With these new features we can address now all the standard cartons in style and format in the Diana Smart Series,” said Joerg Daehnhardt, Vice President Postpress, Heidelberg USA. “Heidelberg postpress customers continue to enjoy the advantage of the largest service force and parts inventory in the industry. This demonstrates the mutual commitment of Heidelberg and its strategic partner Masterwork.”

All Diana Smart and Diana X folding carton gluers are built in the same factories by the same technicians, and sold exclusively by Heidelberg. Heidelberg continues to support all Diana installations in North America. All current and future Diana customers retain the same Heidelberg sales contacts, and can rely on uninterrupted access to Heidelberg’s global parts, sales and service network.
