As part of a major investment program, ASC Cartons, a producer of quality cardboard box products based in Shipley, West Yorkshire has purchased a new Messersi PR90 single lance compression strapper from Blackstar Handling Systems.
The full system was completed and commissioned on time and to coincide with the start-up of the new case-maker.
Our solution replaced a very old and tired Signode machine. The project was delivered and installed on time and the customer is delighted with the equipment and support from Blackstar Handling Systems. Blackstar Handling Systems completed the project in conjunction with Messersi Packaging, who supplied the P90 single lance compression Strapper.
Messersi Packaging are a worldwide supplier of Strapping and Wrapping products and with Blackstar Handling Systems promoting their equipment, the partnership is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the UK.
Pallet handling equipment transports completed work from the case-makers through the Strapper and out for dispatch. The ASC Cartons Operators and Engineering Manager were trained in the operation of the new Strapping system by Blackstar Handling Systems.
The Production Manager Mt Ashley Power at ASC Carton commented;
“All at ASC Cartons are really pleased with the new Messersi Strapper and the way the contract was handled by Blackstar Handling Systems. The equipment is of a very high quality and has been trouble free since its installation.
The equipment was delivered on time and Blackstar Handling Systems installed the system over a weekend to minimize downtime and disruption to our production.
The machine has been a huge benefit to ASC Cartons and reduced downtime to zero. The quality of the Messersi machine is comparable with any of the other strapping machines available and the prices are very attractive”.
All Blackstar Handling Systems equipment is fully modular, using quality propriety parts from suppliers such as- SEW, Nord, SICK, RHP, Siemens, Allen Bradley and Telemechaneque.
Blackstar Handling Systems equipment is supplied with electrical devices pre-fitted unless specifically requested not to be fitted by the customer. Equipment is supplied powder coated in any Standard RAL or BS colour.
