Global strapping systems provider Mosca has delivered the MCB-2 in-line squarer-bundler to Cullen Packaging’s plant in Glasgow, Scotland.
Cullen Packaging supplies recycled paper products for the National Health Service (NHS) and supermarket chains.
The company expects to use the MCB-2 to strap bundles of boxes in a casemaker on an automated production line.
Mosca noted that the newly delivered machine has been developed for corrugated board applications.
It features an integrated squaring system that allows users to align stacks before strapping them.
MCB-2’s fully automatic in-line strapping enables fast setup and job changes, and provides up to 27 inline bundles per minute.
According to Mosca, the bundles can be easily transferred using brushless, low-maintenance DC technology.
Cullen Packaging production manager Chris Adam said: "The automatic strapping process is faster than manual strapping and this means we can run our casemaker faster achieving higher throughput."
Mosca recently announced an order for four more strapping machines, which will be installed by Precision Colour Printing (PCP) later this year.
PCP currently uses SoniXs TR-6 Base and SoniXs TRI-6 Base strappers for its binding and saddle-stitching lines.
