Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machinery Systems (MHI-MS), a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group company, has announced the launch of a brand-new MC flexo folder gluer, a new lineup broadening its portfolio of box making machines.
The MC has been developed to deliver superior Japanese quality to a broader range of customers, it said. Succeeding the performance of EVOL, a flagship machine with nearly 600 sold worldwide, the MC achieves a shorter total length by integrating a newly designed printing unit.
Besides enabling box plants with limited space to install the machine, the new design allows operators to change printing dyes without using the stairs with which conventional printing units are equipped, the company said.
“With its new features and sophisticated technology, gained through a legacy spanning more than 50 years, the ‘MC’ ensures high productivity and stable production at top speed, maximizing the chance of plant operators,” the company added.
