South Korea's Ye Sung installs folder gluer to increase output

South Korean packaging supplier, Ye Sung Corp., installed the Allpro 70 folder-gluer. It was put into operation in March. The new machine contributes to faster turnaround times for individual jobs, and ensures that work processes proceed without problems despite the limited space available.

The Allpro 70 is flexible in terms of the substrates that can be used. An extensive range of tailored equipment options also allows it to handle an exceptionally broad variety of different folding carton designs. Application-oriented solutions and functions, along with belt speeds of up to 400 m/min, provide for fast makeready and high productivity.

Ye Sung experienced a production output increase of more than 30%. Overtime could be reduced, and employee satisfaction rose in equal measure as weekend shifts become a thing of the past.

“The additional folder-gluer line has made us better able to group similar carton designs and sizes on individual machines, which saves makeready time and boosts production output.” Work processes have been streamlined to a considerable extent, and the lead time from confirmation of an order through to shipping of the processed products is now also shorter,” said Jaewan Kim, CEO of Ye Sung.

Since being founded in 2008, Ye Sung has grown to become a highly specialised packaging supplier, whose principal customers are small to mid-size companies that are active in a wide range of market segments, along with major players from the pharmaceuticals industry.

A broad spectrum of different folding cartons is produced, including ones for medicines and beauty products, dietary supplements, cosmetics and foods. They frequently include some very complicated designs that push the processing equipment to its limits.
