Atlas Packaging can now offer a superior crash lock container after installing the very latest technology at our North Devon home. The Bobst Expertfold 230 A2 is the only one of its kind in the UK. Its makers Bobst describe the machine as having the fastest set up time in its class, can smooth and precisely fold corrugated board up to 35mm thick and features the unique Accueject system as Bobst's Stuart Alvey-Taylor explains:
"The Accueject feature enables the Baumer HHS Glue system, which is integrated into the Bobst machine, to detect unglued cartons and eject them on the run without stopping the machine. This is the first in the UK on a Bobst Expertfold 230 A2."

The Expertfold can handle 4 and 6 corner Crash Lock containers as well as 4 corner boxes on short and longer runs for this reliable and versatile machine. As our company Managing Director Jason Sharman says, it's the latest in a long line of continued reinvestment into the business by Atlas Packaging:
"The Expertfold is another million pound investment into our capabilities at Atlas Packaging. In combination with our £1.75M Cuir Flexoprinter we can produce high quality printed boxes that are now folded with even more consistency. Should a box not be fully glued it'll be ejected from the machine without the production run stopping assisting us in maintaining delivery times and schedules."

The Bobst also features a multi-camera cctv display to ensure its smooth running
Bobst engineers installed the Expertfold on site in Barnstaple in early November 2018 with the machine coming in to use immediately after testing to help with the busy lead up to Christmas for our customers.
