The investment will enable Phoenix to serve a wider range of customer requirements and their growing demand.
Phoenix production manager YL Ooi said: “The NOVACUT aligns with our requirements perfectly and its integration into our factory floor has already increased productivity and efficiency.
“Moreover, the machine boasts a very user-friendly interface, featuring an intuitive HMI and straightforward, systematic instructions catering to all skill levels and making it very popular with our operators.
“Our customers have noticed a significant improvement in turnaround times. They appreciate our ability to fulfil their orders promptly, which will no doubt lead to increased loyalty and more repeat business.”
The latest investment strengthens more than 20 years of partnership between Phoenix and BOBST.
