LIMERICK-BASED CUBE HAS INVESTED IN AN EASYMATRIX 106 CS AND A DIANA GO 85 TO EXPAND THE BUSINESS INTO THE PACKAGING SECTOR
CUBE celebrated the arrival of an Easymatrix 106 CS (cutting and stripping) die-cutter along with a Diana GO 85 folder-gluer to its premises recently. The company is hoping that this most recent partnership with Heidelberg and the company’s first investment into Post Press Packaging equipment will help it grow this side of the business further in the years to come.
“We wanted to partner with a company with a proven track record over a period of many years, who would be able to provide us with state-of-the-art technology and had the infrastructure and backup here on the ground in Ireland. We wanted someone who would support us as our business continues to grow,” says James Maloney, Operations and Finance Manager at CUBE. “Our staff are very positive on this and the other investments made by the shareholders, as it's a tangible sign of their commitment to the company's growth, to developing long term strategic partnerships and providing job security.”
The Easymatrix 106 CS is intended to ease the entry of the company into the production of folding cartons. It converts a huge range of materials into cartons, enabling packaging and commercial applications. The machine has a maximum cutting speed of 7,700 SPH, processing materials from as thin as 90g/m2 to board up to 2,000g/m2 and in formats up to a maximum size of 760 x 1,060mm. The Easymatrix 106 CS is a die-cutter with cutting and stripping station.
The Diana GO 85 is a folder-gluer, suitable for materials such as 200-600g/m2 solid board, E flute corrugated and some paper stocks. It can run a wide range of carton styles including straightline and lockbottom, as well as document wallets, envelopes, CD sleeves and some special applications, depending on the size of the product and the number of folds.
