Tung Lim Press recently installed the Bobst Novacut 106 E; this is the third generation of Bobst die-cutters that has been installed at the factory in Selangor, Malaysia.
‘We started out with a Bobst SP 900 machine, which was the very first automatic die-cutter on the market, followed by an SP Evoline 102 E, and since then we have relied on Bobst for all of our die-cutting needs. Their machines are known for their excellent performance, and are always robust, reliable and very precise,’ said managing director, Jeffery Wong. ‘In order to stay competitive, we are constantly upgrading the facilities to keep up with market trends, so we need top quality machinery.’
The latest generation of Bobst die-cutters, the Novacut 106 E Autoplaten offers cost-effective cutting and stripping in-line. ‘Tung Lim Press is already reaping the benefits of the machine’s ability to cut anything from paper, carton and solid board in thicknesses from 80 gsm up to 2,000 gsm and corrugated board of up to 4 mm, in sheet sizes from 350 x 400 mm to 760 x 1060 mm,’ according to Bobst.
For Tung Lim Press, the added flexibility and increase in productivity in the converting department will translate into growth in sales, according to Wong, who said that their projections forecast a 10 percent revenue increase per year.
‘We are very proud of the many long-term partnerships we have all over the world. They are a testament to the longevity of Bobst and our continuous innovation,’ said Bobst SEA sales director folding carton industry, Attila Kajari. ‘We have seen Tung Lim Press develop from a tiny entity to one of Malaysia’s most respected packaging producers, and I’d like to think that Bobst has played an important part in the success of the company. With the Bobst Novacut 106 E, they have the best tools to grow further and increase sales of their high-quality cartons.’
