The BoxMaker is solving production bottlenecks with a Zünd D3 L-3200 with automatic board-handling system (BHS) through using the first dual-beam system ever installed in the US for their packaging.
Established in 1981 as a brown box plant, the BoxMaker expanded into fulfillment and co-packing in 2008. The company first bought their wide-format digital press in 2011 and, within a few years, they launched into a web-to-print graphic packaging service with a automated digital workflow taking full advantage of its digital printing and finishing capabilities.
Staying ahead of the pack
With the fast-growing online presence of competitors came the need for processing upwards of 200 orders per day, and importantly a cutting solution that could keep up. A Zünd D3 L-3200 with BHS, was installed in mid-2016.
“We chose the Zünd D3 for its dual-head capability, speed, and efficiency. The Zünd fully automated cutting system is critical to our ability to deliver fully custom packaging orders in days rather than in weeks, a key differentiator for us in the market.” Daniel Dixon, Director of Operational Excellence
The enhanced productivity of the dual-beam system helped solve the production bottleneck The BoxMaker was experiencing previously, and increased throughput made production more cost-effective. The Zünd D3 also opened up options that did not exist before, such as the ability to use two heads speeds up cutting time, allowing them to keep up with the ever-increasing pace of production.
On the cutting edge of a growing market
As digital wide-format print technology continues to make advances in the corrugated field, demand for highly productive cutting and finishing processes will continue to increase. So the BoxMaker is already planning further additions in their finishing department to keep up with the ever-growing output generated by digital print, their fastest growing segment.
“The D3 has opened up options to us that did not exist before. The dual-head capacity allows us to keep up with the ever-increasing pace of production. Our operators love the Zünd equipment.” Daniel Dixon
