CardPak Installs Penta Die Board Laser from AdamsTech

SOLON, OH | AdamsTech, Boulder, CO, announces the successful installation of a new Penta dieboard laser with Rofin-Sinar laser source at consumer packaging provider CardPak. AdamsTech says this is the third installation of its kind in the past six months, with more in the works. CardPak reports it is very pleased with the installation of the laser and the new EasyBender steel rule bender/processor and the converter has already increased production significantly.

According to Greg Ward, die-making product manager for AdamsTech in North America, an installation of this type requires extensive and careful planning. He says, “Our team began the pre-installation planning as soon as CardPak made the decision to purchase this upgrade to their existing dieshop operations. We arranged the shipping and importation, customs clearance, scheduling, and rigging, as well as planning with electricians and other outside contractors. We were also able to assist CardPak in the layout and positioning of the equipment to maximize efficiency in their workflow.”

The installation itself required thorough coordination between the riggers, electricians, and HVAC contractors as well as their own technicians. The AdamsTech team began the moving in and assembly of the Penta OF2515 dieboard laser during the weekend, to minimize production interference. The laser was producing dieboards the same day the technician completed the resonator startup.

CardPak's VP of operations, Dave Burkhart, stressed, “We didn’t want any finger pointing when faced with the many challenges of installing a laser of this size and capability. We were interested in a ‘turn-key’ solution, where we didn’t have to worry about import, shipping, or rigging. AdamsTech delivered the goods complete with assembly, installation and training."
