BOBST NOVACUT 106E AUTO-PLATEN INSTALLED
Chester Medical Solutions continues its comprehensive investment programme with the installation of a new Bobst Novacut 106E auto-platen at the company’s Deeside pharmaceutical carton and leaflet manufacturing facility.
The new die-cutting machine will deliver increased capacity to service current and future business growth as well as providing more flexibility to cope with the ever more complex requirements of the pharmaceutical industry.
Site Operations Manager, Ronnie Delamar, stated “The new Novacut 106E will allow us to handle a wider variety of substrates and materials to keep pace with customers’ changing needs. Although the new die-cutter can handle a larger sheet than our existing equipment, it is fully backwards compatible in terms of tooling with our existing Bobst auto-platen”
The latest acquisition is part of an on-going schedule of expansion and improvement across all sites. Other recent investments include the UK’s first digital braille printer for cartons and a new Bobost Expertfold 110 glue line at Deeside, together with the construction of a new high bay warehouse and additional production suites at the company’s contract packing facility in Wirral.
Chester Medical Solutions is one of the UK’s largest privately owned carton and leaflet manufacturers and also offers a full range of contract manufacturing and packing services to the medical and pharmaceutical industries.
