If there’s one thing we love, it’s new equipment. This is why we’re proud to announce the addition of two brand new machines to Taylor Box, the Emmeci MC-2018-Digital line and the MC-79 Robotic Box Closer. These machines are designed to produce small to medium size boxes, and their installation at Taylor Box will be the first at any facility in the USA.
Recently, we visited with our partners at Emmeci USA to finalize the purchase of the new machines. We have a long-standing relationship with Emmeci, and frankly, we couldn’t do what we do without them. We saw the equipment in action, met up with our friends Glenn Maile, National Sales Manager and Dominick Archino, President of Emmeci USA division.
The addition of these new machines to our fleet gives us an advantage in producing high-quality rigid boxes with greater speed and precision than ever. We use a remarkable mix of old and new at Taylor Box. We depend on our Hand Department to complete detail work on our boxes that couldn’t be accomplished by machine. Our vintage Heidelberg and Kluge machines date back decades and are as reliable as day they were made. But as we continue to expand our business, large quantity orders need to addressed with reasonable accommodation.
That’s where Emmeci comes in. These machines will assemble base and lid boxes automatically, placing the lid on the base, saving valuable time in the manufacturing process. According to President Dan Shedd, “This investment keeps Taylor Box Company at the leading edge of premium paperboard packaging manufacturing technology”. Packaging technology is only getting better, and we’re determined to keep up with the times.
