Switzerland-based folding box manufacturer Rondo has expanded the capacity of its factory located in Ejpovice, Czech Republic.

As part of the expansion, a new Bobst VisionCut CUT 106 LER die-cutter with an in-line separator and a gluing line was added to the existing machinery installed at the site.

The expansion has increased the Ejpovice plant’s capacity to produce up to 700 million folding boxes and partition blanks in a year.

In the medium term, the site will also be able to produce 1.2 billion items.

Installation of the automatic die-cutting machine will enable Rondo to handle larger orders involving more than 20,000 sheets.

The newly added gluing line at the Ejpovice plant will also allow the company to avoid bottlenecks in production.
