Smurfit Kappa has invested in a new in-line laminator for its Massa Lombarda plant in Italy. This machine is suitable for both solid board and carton board in single and double wave.
This is the first installation in the world of an in-line laminator in double wave with the patented system On-The-Fly, a technology that allows the machine to reach speeds and precision levels of lamination not possible with traditional machines.This investment confirms the commitment of Smurfit Kappa to develop its business driven by customer needs.
This new machine will improve the quality of print enhancing production possibilities and service to customers at the Massa Lombarda plant. A high quality print along with high performance and light paper will allow customers to create packaging that is more sustainable and stands out against competitors.
This investment follows other machines and equipment recently purchased by Smurfit Kappa Italy. It confirms the strategic role that Smurfit Kappa has taken in investment in technology, ensuring it will remain a leader in the paper-packaging industry.
