Always a leading innovator among the top printing companies in the Southeast region, Central Florida Press (CFP) in Orlando recently installed new equipment. Acquiring a Bobst die-cutting machine for paper and/or board products serves a dual purpose that both strengthens operations and sets a course for future growth, says company President Greg Orlando.
“Bobst has an excellent reputation in the printing industry and we’re familiar with their track record. Packaging Graphics, our sister company in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, has used Bobst die-cutters for a very long time and they’ve performed extremely well for them,” Orlando said.
“We made this purchase decision for two reasons. It immediately supports our current customer base and gives us total control of the production process and turnaround times, therefore eliminating our reliance on outsourcing work to third parties. We also believe this equipment will give us the opportunity to compete and expand in markets that were previously unavailable to us.”
CFP has wisely taken advantage of the technological advances that have changed the printing industry in the last 10-15 years, including the creation of proprietary automated systems to significantly reduce production time. The new Bobst Novacut 106 die-cutter is state-of-the-art and designed to improve performance and versatility.
The manufacturer is quick to promote the machine’s high running speeds, short changeover times and easy operation, in addition to its integrated electronics, highly accurate register systems and double cam gripper bar advance. Installation of the die-cutter was completed last week, followed by training of CFP’s two shift crew.
