Reelvision install another Edale Machine

Edale’s FL-5 inline with their Flatbed Die Cutter

UK  Manufactures of Pharmaceutical, Healthcare, Personal Care and FMCG cartons, Reelvison, have recently installed their second Edale flatbed die cutter 510 wide to run in line with their existing Edale machinery.

Reelvision purchased their first Edale FL-5 Carton printing machine in 2007. A few years on and their growth within the industry resulted in the installation of a second Edale FL-5 this time with an FDC included. Reelvision holds a secure position as a major supplier for short run printed folding cartons with PS9000:2011 pharmaceutical accreditation. Reelvision will be using this specific machine to print high quality cartons which often include embossing, Braille and die cutting in a single pass and can print up to seven colour plus a varnish.

Reelvision’s Sales Director, Deborah Greenwood comments “The second FDC offered a slightly larger die cutting platform, this helped us expand our offering to customers to include the shelf ready packaging that complimented the primary packs.  Every other feature was the same spec as the first machine and this gave us the flexibility to plan on both presses. This press has doubled our capability and given us the spare capacity needed to offer industry breaking lead-times. ”

The FDC makes cost effective, short run folding carton production a reality. With a maximum speed of 10,000 impressions per hour, the ability to nest products up to five across and the ability to reconfigure the machine for a wide range of carton sizes and forms without specialist tooling ensures that downtime and substrate wastage is kept to a minimum.
