Canadian Primoflex Systems Hosts Open House

CAMBRIDGE, ON, Canada—More than 50 customers and partners attended Canadian Primoflex Systems’ (CPS) recent open house event, which showcased two in line folding carton presses.

The event began with a keynote from Canadian Primoflex, Apex North America and Kodak representatives, each discussing their own solutions and applications in the folding carton industry, anilox roller technology and platemaking, respectively.

A demonstration followed, which consisted of a complete job change on CPS’ CP-700 press. “The changeover was completed very quickly and with a number of automated features,” said CPS President Mark Friedrich. The presses also implemented a number of value-added features to make carton production more efficient and impactful, he noted.

The job change involved eight plates, three colors, holographic casting film materials and dies and was completed in 20 minutes. Friedrich says that’s in part thanks to CPS’ tool free changeover.

Both CP-700 presses at the event were sold; one to a China customer seeking to produce high end, value added cartons and the second to a customer in Africa planning to use it as a second machine to produce liquid packaging applications.
