Beyer Adds 4th Bobst Folder/Gluer

COMMACK, NY | Beyer Graphics has upgraded its capabilities with the addition of a fourth Bobst folder/gluer. The Expertfold 110-A2 CS runs at 1,476 fpm and gives Beyer the capability to fold more than 3,000 box styles. The unit is equipped with the latest generation computer control system, the C.U.B.E. 3, which simplifies setup and allows job data to be stored and recalled. It comes with a wireless remote to give the operator greater mobility around the machine. According to Dan Beyer, “We're fortunate enough to have grown our business over the past year, so to better meet the demand and serve our clients, we needed the increased capacity. Eventually we'll be moving into Braille with the addition of an AccuBraille unit directly to the Expertfold.”
