  • Packaids specialist finishers invest in the future with a new Easymatrix 106 CS
  • The new machine is four times faster than the incumbent & also cuts a sheet twice the size
  • A couple of weeks after installation, the knock-on benefits in the factory are already apparent

Packaids specialist finishers in the print and packaging industry invest in the future with a new Easymatrix 106 CS (cutting and stripping) die-cutter. The company, believes that this new investment can help the business meet the requirements of their clientele, expand to new markets, enhance the quality of the products and improve productivity. Postpress is precisely the area where the final touches are given to the products and they can be individually finished to create something unique.

“The decision to invest in a new Heidelberg MK Easymatrix was an easy one for Packaids. We had faced increases in the volume of packaging work over the past two years, and this had highlighted a bottleneck in the die-cutting department of the company. It was screaming out for a B1 flatbed machine to keep up with demand!” says Steve Hutton, Director at Packaids.

He also added, “Not only is the new machine four times faster than the incumbent, but it will also cut a sheet twice the size and remove all of the apertures in the same pass. Just a couple of weeks after installation, we've found the knock-on benefits in the factory abundantly apparent! Clients, too, enjoy faster, more consistent service while still allowing the company to stay competitive.”
