Graph-Pak is turning its attention to the corrugated market as more of its customers look to enter this sector to fulfil demand from their clients and grow their businesses. Having recently been appointed as the Australian representative for APR Solutions, Graph-Pak joined forces with the Italian company to introduce its products to the local market at PacPrint.
On the stand, a team of APR experts was available to discuss the benefits of market-leading solutions such as the Box Plus 1 and Box Plus 2 folder gluers and Athos taping machines for packaging and e-commerce.
The APR Box Plus 1 is an automatic folder-gluer, designed and manufactured to create linear boxes, presentation folders with one or two pockets as well as courier envelopes with external flaps. This unit can also be equipped with the Rap 25 / 50 applicator or Rap strip head for the application of double-sided or tear tape (peel & seal) products.
The Box Plus 2 is a fully automatic compact hybrid machine for folding and gluing straight boxes, crash-lock bottom boxes and conical boxes. With three-point gluing, it can also be configured to handle envelopes, DVD wallets, folders, inserting paper and plastic cards. Its ability to apply double-sided tape and tear tape makes it a versatile and profitable addition to any packaging operation.
APR industrial tape application solutions on show included the semi-automatic Athos which can apply tapes (including TNT and PVC) to banner, acrylic, transfer, foams up to 3mm, Rissband and also tape VHB for automotive applications to a range of supports from paper and corrugated cardboard to acrylic, PVC and plastic.
