Hannapak upgrade sparks packaging equipment sell off

A new Bobst diecutter leads the revamping of packaging equipment at the country’s largest independently owned packaging printer, spilling a wide range of second hand kit onto GraysOnline.

The continuing investment programme at Hannapak has seen it install a new manroland R706 LV HS six-colour press in February this year, one of the fastest and most automated models in the world. It takes its place alongside six other manroland presses at the North Richmond plant.

The increase in productivity has required an upgrade in downstream processing equipment, notably the installation of a new Bobst 106 Mastercut to keep pace with the work. According to Sam Hanna, the Bobst is ’the highest efficiency die-cutting system anywhere in the world.’  Linked up to a Bobst Masterfold straight-line folding and gluing system it is one of the fastest packaging lines in the world.

The new equipment has made some of the company’s existing stock redundant and part of it has been assigned to GraysOnline Auction for sale next week.

“I think people will understand that this is exceptionally well-maintained equipment from Hannapak. We have a reputation for not only quality printing and packaging but also in the way we maintain equipment,” he said.

Among the items going for sale are:

  • Bobst 1080 diecutter with stripping
  • Heidelberg platen diecutter
  • 2 x Heidelberg cylinder diecutters
  • Roland Favorit 2-colour press

A full list is available on GraysOnline. (search sale number 5011297)
