Edale is a leading global expert in single-pass carton production solutions and a supplier of technology to the packaging industry. They have a vast and growing number of machine installations worldwide producing pharma, cosmetic, tobacco and food & beverage cartons.
Edale invites you to meet the team and discuss their technology and explore how they can help narrow web label converters diversify into this high potential, environmentally sustainable market.
In August of this year, Edale introduced their new generation FL5 Single-Pass Carton Production Line, boasting a web width of 600mm (24”) and a repeat size of up to 711.2mm (28”) greater than a B2 plus sheet size format.
Launching our next generation FL5 press is a source of great pride for us, states James Boughton, Managing Director, Edale.
“This innovative technology equips us with print and converting capabilities equivalent to a B2 format offset press and die-cutter.
While many carton houses are likely to integrate this capability in-house, the growing demand for value-added embellishments will likely to lead them to outsourcing work.
We fully understand customers having to overcome the fear of transitioning from offset to flexo or even sheetfed to web-fed process. It’s the fact that people cannot get their head around the improved workflow, the smaller footprint requirement, not only of the machine but the work in progress too, the single-person operation for all processes, and the one-pass production from blank roll to finished product, including all types of embellishment.
If you’ve only ever known traditional carton production methods, it’s a lot to take in all at once.”
