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.
