Rotary die cutter RD115S

KOLBUS opens up new potential for processing corrugated board

The KOLBUS RD 115S rotary die-cutter with flexographic printing – the next step in packaging solutions

There’s a new cost-competitive alternative on the market for making corrugated board packaging. It comes from German engineering company KOLBUS, based in Rahden in East Westphalia. KOLBUS has a good 10 years’ experience building systems for flexoprint rotary die-cutters for the North American market. The European market launch of the KOLBUS RD 115S opens up new competitive advantages through the benefits of inline processing for the ever-growing packaging market.

An investment in the modular RD 115S will strengthen packaging producers’ ability to grow and adapt fast to changing market needs. The modular machine concept includes from one to eight print units plus a die-cutting module for corrugated board in one highly automated inline system.
