Springing Into Action
The in-plant for Spring Industries, in Lancaster, S.C., recently installed a Heidelberg ECO 105 folder-gluer with automatic lock bottom capabilities and a four-channel, three-gun, cold glue system. The installation marks the 20-employee shop’s initial foray into folding carton packaging.
“Now we have the ability to do straight-line folding, book folding, auto lock bottom and gluing, all of which expand our market and save us the money we previously spent outsourcing these types of jobs,” says Supervisor Wayne Tull.
In continuous operation since the 1950s, the all-Heidelberg in-plant prints for Springs Industries packaging plants across North America, as well as externally for customers.
