Menasha Adds Equipment in Canada

NEENAH, WI | Menasha has added new equipment to its Canadian operations in order to maximize production efficiencies, increase capacity, and support its integrated merchandising solutions across North America. The new equipment includes a large-format flatbed die-cutter and litho labeler/laminator, which are both used for packaging and merchandising orders

“This capital investment enables Menasha to further align our capabilities throughout North America….” says Brian Pascavis, Menasha’s regional general manager for Canada. “The improved efficiencies and extra capacity also help us continue meeting the expectations of our large consumer packaged goods customers now and into the future, while accommodating additional growth from current and new customers.”

The Brausse-Eterna PE2100S automatic flatbed die-cutter is equipped with a Centreline makeready system and a side chase loader allowing for faster setups for shorter runs. The die-cutter, which is 2,100x1,300 mm (82.6x51 in.) is rated with 500 tons of cutting pressure and has a top speed of 4,500 cycles/hr.

The Automatan 8166 litho label laminator is a large-format, high-speed labeler/laminator said to be able to handle the largest litho label at 4,500 sheets/hr and registration of ±1 mm. In addition to full and spot labeling capabilities, this machine is equipped with a sheet-to-sheet, single-face module.

Menasha also has relocated a custom gluing machine to Canada from one of its US facilities.
