Enabling creativity, boosting productivity
“Our customers wanted smaller runs and needed their products with a quick turnaround,” said Ilke Mels, CEO of MELS Packaging Innovation. “To be able to work without a die cut was necessary to make sure we could deliver those short runs quickly.”
We wanted more innovation and development. A cutting table was essential to make this idea a reality.
In our latest video, Ilke together with company designer and operator, Brent Nicolaes explains how the new Kongsberg C24 has helped MELS to bring designs to life. “For me as a designer, the cutting table is almost like a toy,” said Brent. “I can create without limitations, I can quickly cut a design to test it, and make adaptations and cut it again to take it further.”
When the cutter is configured and running, we as operators don’t need to be next to the machine - we can take care of other tasks.
Ilke also explains how the introduction of the automated Kongsberg Feeder & Stacker has boosted productivity for MELS. “When we start a job it’s easy to operate the feeder stacker,” she said. “We place a pallet with material, input all settings of the machine and then we push ‘go’ and the cutter starts by taking the materials, cutting them and stacking the results on another pallet.”
