Menasha Packaging's Yukon Plant Expands Graphic Display Capabilities
May 20, 2014
Menasha Packaging’s Yukon Plant, located in Ruffs Dale, Pennsylvania, is increasing production and quality of high-impact graphic displays thanks to new state-of-the-art machinery.
The recent addition of a large-format Automatan litho labeler has boosted throughput at the Yukon Plant by 50 percent. It also accommodates blanks that are about 40 percent larger than the facility’s previous litho labeler, while still being able to handle smaller format sheets if needed.
The new litho labeler is phase one of Yukon Plant’s efforts to ramp up its retail point-of-purchase display capabilities. Phase two consists of a new high-speed Bobst Mastercut die cutter.
“The new die cutter will further increase throughput, as well as improve safety and ergonomics,” says Jeff Rega, Operations Manager for Menasha Packaging’s Western Pennsylvania Complex. “In addition, the die cutter will match the format size of our new litho labeler, and allow us to deliver consistent quality and speed for our customers.”
The Bobst Mastercut die cutter is expected to be up and running at Menasha Packaging’s Yukon Plant later this summer.
