Multi-Faceted 40" Folding/Gluing System Offers Inline CD/DVD Insertion, 16 Glue Heads to Increase Capabilities at Full-Service Houston-Based Binding and Finishing Provider
Houston, TX - Seidl's Bindery, a full-service binding and finishing provider specializing in high-volume PUR adhesive binding, folding/gluing and die cutting production, has recently installed a state-of-the-art Bobst Fuego folding/gluing system.
The 40" Bobst Fuego system offers industry-leading speed and versatility for the conversion of direct mail pieces, pocket folders, point-of-purchase displays, CD and DVD boxes, product packaging and similar items.
The system features 16 start-stop glue heads capable of applying hot or cold glues depending on the requirements of each project. Four folding stations offer easy conversion of multi-panel applications. Inline CD and DVD insertion allows the Fuego to produce disc-bearing mailers completely inline. A high-pressure stacker ensures that converted pieces exhibit a consistent shape and sufficient strength.
Bill Seidl, President of Seidl's Bindery, said the Fuego has been invaluable to the company's ability to handle the breadth of their customers' packaging needs.
"The Fuego is really a great piece of equipment," said Seidl. "Its ability to perform the folding, seam gluing, fugitive gluing and CD insertion in one pass allows us to turn around high-volume packaging applications very quickly. The setups have been lightning fast, and with process controls at every step we can be confident of our quality even at full production speeds.
