China’s Xiamen Yingsheng invests in second Heidelberg press
Xiamen Yingsheng will install its second Heidelberg Intro Web-Flexo press to expand production capacity.
To take advantage of the growing market for Aseptic Liquid Packaging, in 2012 Xiamen Yingsheng made a strategic decision to open a green field production facility. With a total investment of almost 40 million Euro and a workshop area of more than 100.000 sqm., they were able to produce 6 billion packs per year in the first phase.
One of the machines installed in the new facility is the Heidelberg INTRO, formerly known under the name of Gallus INTRO.
“Yes, we have decided for Heidelberg, which is first class production machinery, and yes, it was a high investment,” said Mr. Li, Vice General Manager says. “However it paid off, because we convinced big groups to become our customers.”
Xiamen Yingsheng’s INTRO, a 7 colour web-printing press which produces the Aseptic paper material at a width of 1340 mm and a max. speed of 500 m/min. is a key factor in the safe production process. The entire machine was quickly installed and operators were trained by the Heidelberg experts. The ergonomic design, intuitive operating concept and easy accessibility makes the INTRO to a particularly user-friendly machine. In case of additional support-requests, the staff has access to Heidelberg Web Carton Converting (WCC)’s 24/7 service hotline.
Despite being a newcomer in the liquid packaging business, Xiamen Yingsheng has grown very quickly, and this has led to a demand for additional production capacity. Due to the positive experiences with Heidelberg WCC, it’s team and the Intro-machine, the company purchased the second Intro press at the end of 2018.
Mr. Li said: “We are very convinced that this further investment is another step on our further growth and continued partnership with Heidelberg WCC”.
The new machine will be installed in 2019 and will double the printing capacity of Xiamen Yingsheng.
