Wauters Group relies on Heidelberg technology for the production of luxury packagings

  • New customized Speedmaster XL 75 installed at B.Pack
  • One-pass productivity for complex applications
  • Cutting-edge solution for a wide variety of finishings based on twelve units and coating prior to perfecting

Packaging specialist B.Pack, a member of the Wauters Group, relies on Heidelberg technology for highly productive manufacturing of luxury packagings. The company recently installed its second Speedmaster XL 75 custom machine from Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg). This special machine configuration enables the back and front of folding cartons to be produced in one pass. This means, for example, that small luxury folding cartons with full-surface printing on the inside with two dark blue inks and protective coating followed by five colors on the outside with gloss coating, matt coating, or gold coating can be produced. Coating prior to perfecting and various inking and coating units enable a high level of flexibility. The machine can also be used for collecting packagings, for example for three to five different perfume bottles, or for shower gel, deodorant, and perfume from one brand. These are produced for the airport duty free sector, where text is required more and more frequently on the inside of these cartons.

The new Speedmaster XL 75 with twelve units – an XL 75-2+LY-P-5+LYL – is in production at B.Pack at the Couches site in Burgundy, France. The pressroom has been home to a Speedmaster XL 75-6+LYY-1+L since the beginning of 2015. “We’re very happy with Heidelberg as a partner for the packaging industry. Following positive experiences in the past, we’re now looking forward to the new machine customized to our specific requirements to increase our flexibility in packaging applications,” explains Jeremy Desbois, Pressroom Manager at B.Pack on a visit to the Heidelberg site in Wiesloch-Walldorf. Together with colleagues from the Wauters Group, he watched the final assembly of the Group’s new machine. “This means that we will then be able to combine two-sided coating and printing inline in one pass and offer our customers highly embellished luxury packagings with a range of different coating effects.” The machine will process cartons made from substrate thicknesses of up to 0.8 mm.
