Participating in IndiaCorr Expo for the first time, Taiwan-based Paktek is a leading supplier of Auto and Semi-Auto Folder Gluers to paste lock bottom and other exclusive designs of cartons. In last 35 years, Paktek has successfully installed their machines in Brazil, Europe, China and Poland. At Stand B-12, Paktek displayed KS 1600 M – multifunctional folder gluer designed to bind the paste flap of corrugated boxes. “There are only a few manufacturers who provide staples to close the corner flap. However, the consumption of staples is forbidden in some countries. Hence, we display our machinery that is fitted with hot and cold melt gluing systems,” says Amy Chan, managing director at Paktek. The KS 1600 M can take a board width of minimum 400 mm and maximum 1600 mm. The
enormous diversity of paper flutes over 300 gsm can run easily in KS1600 M.
“Regardless of RSC or irregular cartons, the device performance is outstanding, specially for large scale corrugated boxes having excellent durability and difficult to produce manually. The machine is most suitable for binding 5-ply corrugated cartons and since it comes with automatic tools, it becomes easy to handle the device by a single operator
at a speed of 500 to 800 sheets an hour. In addition, the machine can robotically position the pile height at the delivery and feeding units, thereby increasing the post-press jobs through efficient means,” claims Chan.
At drupa, Paktek bagged nine orders out of which a few are already installed and the rest under production. Going further, Paktek plans to participate in the upcoming Sino Corrugated event in China.
