Manufacturers of pharmaceutical, healthcare, personal care and FMCG cartons, Reelvision, have invested in an Edale FL5, single-pass printing and converting carton line.

The new addition is 540mm wide and comprises of 8 colours and a FDC 600 web-fed flatbed die-cutter.

Reelvision first used the UK technology in 2007 when the two collaborated to develop a single-pass flexographic print and flatbed die-cutting technology specifically for the production of cartons, at that time called the Edale Gamma. The Gamma evolved to become the FL5 but is still designed with carton printers in mind.

Managing director Edale, James Boughton commented, ‘Our partnership with Reelvision is greater than any usual customer-supplier relationship, not only is it long-standing but both companies have really benefited from our collaborative approach. We look forward to continuing in this vein, and our in-house team of engineers will enjoy designing and customising their new press to fit their brief perfectly.’

Managing director, Gareth Bakewell, Reelvision commented, ‘Our investment in the FL5 carton press will be a great addition to our existing Edale machinery. We have worked with Edale on a number of specialist projects now, and our priority is to ensure that as we continue to grow, we stay ahead of the curve through our continued investment in the very latest new future-proofed technology to ensure we bring our customers the best possible packaging solutions.’
