Poland-based Dunapack Packaging has entered an agreement with digital printing technology firm Electronics For Imaging (EFI) to optimise corrugated packaging production.
As part of the agreement, Dunapack will deploy the EFI Escada Profile closed-loop process control system to achieve consistent quality and overall efficiency.
The EFI Escada solutions will enable Unpack to optimise production with enhanced control and reporting capabilities.
Dunapack Packaging Eurobox Polska production director Jakub Wojtko said: “We have been using Escada Syncro seven wet and dry-end control on our corrugator for several years, and having consulted with EFI about additional options that could help us in our continuous pursuit of quality, we decided Escada Profile would be the perfect solution for us.
“We believe EFI Escada is the best choice for having an integrated closed-loop corrugator control system that I hope will bring us many advantages such as increased quality due to higher run speeds.
“With these advantages, we expect to save money and further delight our customers with improved and reproducible product quality.”
A part of Austrian-based Prinzhorn Group, Dunapack Packaging operates 19 corrugated plants located across ten countries.
It employs nearly 6,300 people and reported to have an annual turnover of €1.23bn.
Wojtko added: “Adding Escada Clarity as well for enhanced reporting will help us focus on the relevant areas in production that we need to improve and optimise.
“The continual investment we make in our machinery and capabilities are what will help us as a business achieve our goals for growth in the future. Keeping our customers happy with improved quality of product will be an important step to help us achieve that.”
Last month, the company’s Romanian unit Dunapack Rambox signed an agreement to buy an 11.5ha area in the Bucharest to construct a greenfield corrugated packaging plant.
In addition to the construction of the new facility, the company will conduct a technical upgrade at its existing Sfântu Gheorghe plant in Romania.
