Karlville Swiss has introduced the second generation of fast change, low waste, pouch making machines. These machines are designed to meet the growing market demands of HP Indigo digital flexible packaging printers as well as traditional flexible packaging converters looking to improve the efficiency of short/medium run business.
The standard KS-DSUP-400 machine is suitable to produce three-side seal pouches and stand-up, pouches from one web, which is marketed for customers with HP Indigo 20000 presses.
For narrow web digital customers with HP Indigo 6900 models, the KS-DSUP-400-GS is designed to help converters get started making pouches. The machine is suitable to produce three-side-seal pouches from two independent webs (printing synchronization included – developed with innovative concepts) and stand-up pouches from three independent webs. With this two-registration concept, the customer can increase the size range of pouches dramatically verses standard fold-over machines.
Combining both machine models, customers may choose to synchronize webs or fold over a single web to maximize the click utilization rate by printing full webs. This innovation will give Indigo users maximum flexibility and efficiency. To satisfy increasing demand for pouch converting machinery, Karlville has expanded engineering, production and support staff in Europe and USA. In addition, machines are now available for customer trials in both Europe and USA.
