Polish packaging printer puts world's first Promatrix 106 CS die cutter from Heidelberg into production

  • Arka-Druk benefits from wide range of standard features and is impressed by high quality
  • Further sales to European customers
  • Joint development of die cutters with Masterwork Machinery continues and new products in pipeline

Polish packaging print shop Arka-Druk in Lapy near Bialystok has begun production with the world's first Promatrix 106 CS die cutter. At an open house event at the end of March this year, other Polish printers witnessed this world premiere with practical demonstrations and were provided with comprehensive technical information. The Promatrix 106 CS is the first machine to result from the partnership concluded last fall between Chinese manufacturer Masterwork Machinery Co. Ltd. (MK) and Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG (Heidelberg). The machine is being sold exclusively by Heidelberg.

Following lengthy and extensive testing, Arka-Druk is now benefiting from the comprehensive standard features of the Promatrix 106 CS and is delighted with the high quality. Arka-Druk was founded in 2000, has 70 employees, and supplies discerning customers in the packaging industry, including pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies. Its excellent experiences with the Varimatrix 105 CS die cutter and Easygluer 100 folding carton gluing machine, also installed by Heidelberg, underpinned its decision to purchase the Promatrix 106 CS. "We were looking for a die cutter for runs and lead times that are becoming ever shorter," explains owner Arthur Bach. "The tests with the Promatrix 106 CS met all our expectations. The die cutter fits in well with our concept of industrial production with structured processes and delivers high quality with reliable production," he adds.

New Promatrix 106 CS die cutter for short to medium runs

Heidelberg unveiled the Promatrix 106 CS last fall at the Packaging Days held in Hall 11 at its Wiesloch-Walldorf site. The machine impresses with a wide range of standard features, extremely user-friendly operation, and an attractive price-performance ratio. The Promatrix 106 CS performs die cutting and embossing at a speed of 8,000 sheets per hour for a 760 × 1,060 millimeter (29.92 × 41.73 inch) format. Thanks to its short makeready times, users benefit from high productivity and excellent cost-efficiency. It can handle a wide range of materials – from 90 all the way up to 2,000 grams per square meter – and also processes corrugated board up to four millimeters (0.16 inches) thick.

Further sales of die cutter and new products planned

"We're delighted the Promatrix 106 CS has been so well received by the customer. Other machines sold to European customers are almost ready for delivery," confirms Dr. Frank Schaum, head of Postpress at Heidelberg. The Heidelberg sales team works closely with product management at MK. This ensures new products meet customers' technical and commercial requirements. "We will continue to develop the product portfolio with MK in the medium term. Our objective in doing so is to supply the right machines and solutions to ensure effective folding carton production, complete with the appropriate service activities," explains Schaum. Customers also enjoy access to the Heidelberg global sales and service network.
