Gulf Carton has installed top of the class DRO 1628 NT RS machine supplied by BOBST for high graphic printing at its Al Ahsa plant. The machine has started commercial production from last week. Gulf Carton team worked extensively with the BOBST engineers to ensure the machine installation and start-up as planned.
The machine is capable to produce up to 7 colours high graphic die cut trays to satisfy branding needs of our esteemed clients. The servo technology on the DRO and the vacuum transfer mean the printing registration is much better than we could achieve previously. We also installed a Bobst Registron S5500 system, which takes care of the register automatically as it is running, without the operators having to intervene. The machine has got Bobst Multiloader automatic pre-feeder and a fully automatic Bobst DRO Palletizer to ensure we can cope up with the top machine speed.

The pallet inserter has helped increasing machine throughput in addition to improving converting section hygiene. The machine is PLC controlled which scans pallet barcode from the pallet tag and selects specified pallet to be inserted under the load from 5 available lines.
