What does Inline processing mean to the Carton Converter?
From roll to die-cut in a single pass. Every carton. Every day.
„Never stop a running system“- this is a core principle of our web presses.
Whether from roll to roll or roll to the finished diecut - our web presses print, embellish and die-cut in a single pass. The direct integration of value-adding and diecutting procedures in the production process saves time and materials, and also reduces WIP storage space and the need for printing overage.
Inline production enables short delivery times. You might even be able to realize orders on the same day. And, by elimating WIP inventory, you move cash to your bank account much faster.
Gap waste is a thing of the past, since printing and diecutting are done in a continuously repeating pattern. Every image on the material web connects directly to the next. Thus you save considerably in material costs. Adding to this, the absence of gripper margins saves even more.
Single pass production can reduce or even completely eliminate overages, since there is no between-process spoilage and no need to print extra sheets to set up downstream operations. And, the inline process lets you see the finished product immediately, making your quality control operations faster, more precise and less wasteful. Available inline defect detection senses flaws and automatically ejects bad cartons from the delivery stream, eliminating manual inspection entirely.
In folding cartons, paperboard’s share is up to 60% of the cost of the finished product. Buying rollstock can save you big! And, by taking advantage of the possibility of inline lamination, you gain further enormous savings potential - prelaminated substrates are no longer required.
