Investment in New Machinery at Belmont
This year we are investing in new machinery and exploring modifications we can make to existing machinery that will allow us to offer even greater capabilities to our customers.
So far we have made two exciting investments;
- A new hot melt glue system
- A fully automated in-line strapping machine
Hot melt glue system
We have added to our existing folder gluing machine by incorporating a new hot melt glue system from Valco Melton.
Velcon Melton are world leaders in developing high speed gluing systems and providing quality assurance in manufacturing packaging.
The Evolution C Series technology is the newest technology for hot melt adhesive melters. It is regarded best in class in its performance, offering optimum reliability, control and ability to adapt to any work requirement to its user.
"The introduction of the hot melt glue system has enabled us to glue more complicated die-cuts more easily along with larger format products such as dump bins and those products manufactured in heavier duty board grades. The system is easy to use also and so is a welcomed addition to our folder gluer".
Scott Symons, Bobst Team Leader
Fully automated in-line strapping machine
As we ship out our boxes flat packed in bundles, we decided to further enhance our bundling process by investing in the MOSCA MCB-2 fully automated in-line strapping machine. This has replaced our very loyal MCB-1 machine which served us well for many years.
This latest machine has some great features such as;
- Automated set up systems
- Integrated squaring device for uniform bundles
- Off centre bundling for complex strapping requirements
- Automatic coil change with abilities to refill empty coil while machine operational
The MOSCA MCB-2 compliments our efficient environment perfectly!
"The machine uses the latest technology, is more efficient and is able to keep pace with our casemaking machine. We’re pleased to have this capability in our area."
Dave Kellett, Emba Team Leader
We’re excited about the new possibilities these investments have provided Belmont in terms of operational speed and efficiency.
We’ll keep you in the loop with any other investments in machinery we make. If you have any questions, get in touch.
