Company Installs World’s 600th Rotary Diecutter from BOBST

At the end of 2023, BOBST, Mex, Switzerland, will deliver its 600th rotary diecutter worldwide. The MASTERLINE DRO with six printing units will be installed at the new PACKNERS GmbH plant in Emsbüren in northwest Germany.

The MASTERLINE DRO is the flagship rotary diecutter from BOBST. It can be configured for inside and outside printing in a single pass. It also is characterized by a uniquely high degree of automation.

In addition to the automatic anilox roll change, fully automatic register settings with the Start & Go system and the integrated anilox roll cleaning, the rotary diecutter will be equipped with a MULTILOADER pre-feeder, a SPEEDSTACK stripping unit and bundle stacker, along with a SPEEDPAL palletizer. As a result, PACKNERS will have the ability to fully exploit the high productivity of up to 12,000 sheets per hour while achieving the fastest job changes.

“We want to use this high-end rotary diecutter to create additional opportunities for new market segments in the production of high-quality corrugated board packaging” said Stefan Gausepohl, head of sales & marketing.
