Hebron, Kentucky based Zumbiel Packaging, a leading provider of innovative paperboard packaging solutions since 1843, announced its recent acquisition of an HP PageWide T470S Press. This investment not only enhances Zumbiel Packaging’s folding carton production capabilities but also represents the dawn of a new era in automated production workflows for the paperboard packaging sector. Recognizing the growing demand for faster turnaround and customization, Zumbiel has embraced digital printing technologies to revolutionize the traditional folding carton manufacturing process.
The massive new digital production line, which measures over 180 feet in length, features automated roll handling and splicing, water-based expanded gamut inks, inline coatings, inline post-print sheeting and downstream material handling logistics which will enable Zumbiel Packaging to feed their stable of large format (145 cm) sheet-fed die-cutters with speed, efficiency and flexibility.
According to Ed Zumbiel, the robust HP PageWide T470S Press perfectly complements their mega-volume beverage multipack production model and increases efficiency throughout their operations by providing greater order flexibility, more production agility, and faster speed to market with exceptional print quality.
