The efficiency and reliability of Mosca strapping technology has been further endorsed by leading manufacturer, Cullen Packaging, with the purchase of another Mosca machine for its state-of-the-art plant in Glasgow.
The company, a leading supplier of a large range of recycled paper products for the NHS and leading supermarket chains, has installed an MCB-2 in-line squarer- bundler from Mosca to strap bundles of finished boxes after manufacture in a casemaker as part of an automated production line.
The MCB-2 has been specifically developed for corrugated board applications and features an integrated squaring system that allows users to align stacks before strapping them. Strapping occurs in the direction of bundle travel, typically in-line with flutes, and the squaring system provides control of all sides to deliver perfectly squared, uniform bundles.
The machine’s fully automatic in-line strapping ensures fast setup and job changes, delivering extremely high process reliability at up to 27 inline bundles per minute. Smooth transfer of each bundle is achieved by the use of the latest brushless DC technology, which also offers low maintenance.
For Cullen, the automatic operation of the MCB-2 is a particular advantage for this new line, as the company’s Production Manager, Chris Adam, explains:
“The automatic strapping process is faster than manual strapping and this means we can run our casemaker faster achieving higher throughput.”
This is the third Mosca machine to be purchased by Cullen.
“Mosca machines are very good – reliable, efficient and easy to operate, all essential criteria to ensure we can continue to deliver the high standards for which we are renowned,” concludes Chris Adam.
