Luxury packaging manufacturer, Beamglow, has invested in a Bobst MASTERFOIL 106 PR to produce intricate designs for the premium packaging market, including alcoholic beverages, cosmetics and fine fragrances.

The purchase of MASTERFOIL 106 PR is the latest in a series of investments to enhance customer care and satisfaction, as well as boost production efficiency. Since the installation in the summer, Beamglow has achieved gains in quality, production and sustainability.

James Griffin, Beamglow operations manager, said, ‘In the luxury packaging market, customers strive for perfection; zero-fault packs that uphold a brand’s quality image. The industry is being driven that way and as a manufacturer, to be successful in winning and retaining business, we have to be completely committed to delivering that. The global premium market is growing and constantly shifting, and we need to be responsive and not only meet but exceed our customers’ expectations.’

Its lower beam cam movement allows for longer impressions, meaning less heat and pressure is required. In addition, an efficient foil unwind system makes changing foils simple and simultaneously achieves up to a 50% reduction in foil consumption.

‘The MASTERFOIL enables us to achieve the sharpest details on intricate and delicate stamping,’ commented Mr Griffin. ‘It takes precision and accuracy to a new level which means we are able to deliver complex, sophisticated cartons with the outstanding quality that our customers require. At the same time, we are reducing our environmental footprint, and therefore that of our customers’ supply chain. Another reason why we turned to Bobst to help solve our business challenges.’
