Equipment supplier Bobst has launched an automatic packer for corrugated packaging that enhances folding-gluing lines.

Called Speedpack, the packer offers the highest possible number of batches per hour and very short set-up times, according to the company.

Head of product marketing Jacques Reymond says it gently picks up boxes as they exit the folder-gluer and batches them up quickly and reliably while preserving the quality of boxes.

“We have listened to what our clients say they most need to optimise their folding-gluing machines, and Speedpack sets a new benchmark in this space,” he says.

A fluid operation, minimal footprint, and optimal ergonomics and accessibility means the packer can process any type of box, according to Bobst.
