The relationship between Edale and Reelvision started in 2007 when the both companies co-developed a new single-pass flexographic print and flatbed die-cutting technology specifically for the production of cartons, at that time called the Edale Gamma.
The Gamma evolved to become the FL5, however, it retains the mantra of being designed with carton printers for carton printers.
‘Our partnership with Reelvision is greater than any usual customer-supplier relationship, not only is it long-standing, but both companies have really benefited from our collaborative approach,’ said James Boughton, managing director of Edale. ‘We look forward to continuing in this vein, and our in-house team of engineers will enjoy designing and customizing its new press to fit the brief perfectly.’
The investment includes 8-color, 540mm width press and an FDC 600 web-fed flatbed die-cutter.
Reelvision’s managing director, Gareth Bakewell, commented: ‘Our investment in the FL5 carton press will be a great addition to our existing Edale machinery. We have worked with Edale on a number of specialist projects now, and our priority is to ensure that as we continue to grow, we stay ahead of the curve through our continued investment in the very latest new future-proof technology to ensure we bring our customers the best possible packaging solutions.’
