Cases24 celebrated it’s 10 year anniversary last year and has recently risen the bar on their Latitude flexo folder gluer. Latitude Machinery Corp has confirmed that Cases24 has set a world record for cases produced on a Latitude machine in a 24-hour period. Cases24, which is part of the Logson Group, produced 197,000 boxes in one day on its PP1025 Quick Set flexo folder gluer. Cases24 recorded this performance on 5th June 2020.
Cases24 is an integrated site using high quality corrugated sheet manufactured by the award winning Board24. The cases manufacturing operation was originally created to build on Board24’s offering to the packaging industry and is focused on producing the same exacting standards of quality and service.
“We have been very happy with the performance of each of the four Latitude lines we have running in the plant,” explains Alex Morris, Managing Director of Cases24. “We have worked closely with David Williams of GTS (Europe) Ltd and Latitude Machinery Corp in choosing the best machines for our business. To achieve a world record on a machine that has only been installed for just over a year is testament to not only the build quality and reliability of the Latitude equipment, but also the ease of use and the high running speeds they can achieve.”
Morris continues, “We wanted one supplier of our casemakers, as it would mean flexibility for our operators being able to move amongst machines at short notice. It also makes life easier in terms of maintenance and spare parts.”
The Latitude PP1025 Quick Set flexo folder gluer was installed at Cases 24 in October 2018, and was a central focus of the company’s 10 year anniversary celebrations. The line includes a Dücker pre-feeder and Dücker Corrpal palletising line. “The Dücker materials handling solutions coupled with the awesome output capabilities of the Latitude casemaker have made for a formidable combination,” adds Morris. “We have ‘best in class’ equipment at our disposal and the volumes we are able to produce on a daily and weekly basis ensure our growing customer base is never left wanting.”
Cases24 is the first company in the UK corrugated industry to be operating four Latitude casemakers. The machines were sold by Latitude’s UK and Ireland sales agent, GTS (Europe) Ltd. David Williams, Managing Director of GTS, says, “We have been working closely with Cases24 right from the start. From the delivery of the very first Latitude machine back in 2009, we have been by their side to help ensure maximum uptime and the best quality cases. To have now produced a world record on their fourth Latitude line is really encouraging and shows that Cases24 are setting the global standard for what can be achieved on these hugely competitive machines. We are delighted to be able to have this showcase in terms of productivity here in the UK for others to see.”
