As part of imageData Group’s continued long-term investment plans, they are pleased to announce the purchase of a Panotec Next Mode 2.5 Box Maker. It is based at the impressive Howden site in East Yorkshire that houses multiple large format roll to roll digital print machines as well as the latest large format flatbed technology. The Group have been looking at how to improve operational efficiencies and identified the Panotec as a beneficial investment. It will complement the current digital print operation.
As part of the NextMode Series, the Panotec is one of the fastest automatic box making machines in the on-demand packaging industry. The exclusive Simulset technology allows each cutting and creasing head to set up simultaneously; which maximizes throughput for highly varied box size production. BoxLink software guides the machine to always select the ideal size fanfold for the box or boxes it needs to make, resulting in minimal waste and maximum box processing speed.
Glen Patrick, Group Commercial Director, negotiated the purchase and installation of the machine and commented “This investment will save imageData Group circa £150k per annum on skillets and other packaging. It will allow us to increase our flexibility and control. We will no longer be reliant on subcontractors to manufacture and supply bespoke packaging.”
