At the heart of our B1 workflow lies the dynamic Heidelberg Speedmaster. Capable of handling substrates ranging from delicate 80gsm paper to robust 700mic folding box board, this printing powerhouse seamlessly navigates through a diverse array of materials with unparalleled precision and ease.

Discover a range of embellishments to elevate your products. Whether you desire added depth through embossing, a touch of shimmer with foil, or texture with lamination and Spot UV, we have the perfect options to transform your packaging.

The Bobst Die Cutter stands out in its ability to cut and crease a wide range of substrates, spanning from fragile 80gsm sheets to robust Litho Laminated Flutes. It ensures impeccable precision in every cut, crease, and perforation, facilitated by micro-adjustments throughout the machine.

Thanks to our cutting-edge Bobst Visionfold glue machines, we effortlessly manufacture straight line and crash lock designs, in addition to 2, 4, and 6 corner configurations, with hot melt or cold glue adhesives. The versatility doesn’t stop there – we expertly handle conical and irregular shapes with precision.

Complementing our advanced glue lines is a state-of-the-art nesting tray machine. This innovative technology effortlessly crafts glued erect trays, serving as an eco-friendly and popular alternative to plastic trays commonly found in food retail packaging.

Furthermore, our Heiber Schroeder window patcher can patch cartons using 36mic to 96mic film with flawless accuracy. Choose from standard polyester-based films or eco-friendly, plastic-free alternatives, allowing your product to take centre stage.
