Reflex Litho Plus sets efficiency focus with Duran

Lithographic printing facility Reflex Litho Plus has set outs its plans to enhance the efficiency of its finishing process, including investing in a new Duran OMEGA Allpro 70 folder-gluer.

Part of the Reflex Group, the company is based in Trafford Park in Manchester, and specialises in the manufacture of cartons, sleeves, boxes and other materials for the food and associated industries.

Site and production manager Mike Webb says the purchase of the new machine from Friedheim International will help to support its wide-ranging service offering.

“We needed to purchase the OMEGA due to the fact that our existing folder gluer was no longer up to the job in terms of volumes, speed, efficiency and was requiring extensive maintenance in order to keep it running,” Webb says.

We believe new and additional work will be attracted by this investment

“The benefits include faster turnaround times, and the ability to match our press size better with larger cartons. Also it will enable us to retain in-house work that we had previously outsourced to other companies.

“We believe new and additional work will be attracted by this investment.”

Key features on the 70cm-wide Duran OMEGA Allpro 70 include the ability to produce straight line, double wall, crash lock and optional 4 and 6 corners with single finger servo back-fold system.

Users also benefit from inner partition, Z-fold, conical crash lock and CD boxes, at a maximum belt speed of 400 m/min.
