Cases24, a manufacturer of high volume glued cases to the trade, has turned to strapping technology specialist Mosca Direct Limited (UK) to help boost productivity with the purchase of two Mosca machines for its Coalville site.
Cases24 chose to replace two existing Mosca bundle strappers after 10 years’ service, on two of their four casemakers. Following a lengthy decision making process, it was decided to opt for the Mosca UATRI-2XT bundle strapper to achieve the highest possible uptime and throughput achievement on both of the site’s mini-line casemakers.
The first installation took place during August, which was only the second latest generation UATRI to be installed in the UK. The installation took place over a weekend and training began on the Monday morning, at which time the machine was fully operational. The second casemaker will see its bundle strapper being replaced with a UATRI in February.
Mosca is renowned for its robust build quality and expertise in developing highly efficient strapping machines. The UATRI is the latest generation of inline corrugated bundle strappers, which offers fast automated setup and jobs changes, with maximum throughput of 30 bundles per minute, giving exceptionally high process reliability and can handle the maximum speeds achieved by both casemakers.
Conversion Manager at Cases24, Paul Elliott is delighted with the decision to opt for the latest generation bundle strapper, “Mosca have proven to be a highly attentive supplier, not only during the sale of the equipment. In fact the installation went better than expected and the desire to ensure the machine is fully safety compliant has been reassuring.”
The company has had a long term supply relationship with Mosca. Providing a high level of after sale support giving a lot of confidence during the selection process. Mosca offer 24/7 support all year round, with consumables and spares stored in the UK for next day delivery and field based engineers only an hour away guarantees should any issues occur there is a swift response to prevent downtime.
Cases24 Managing Director, Alex Morris comments “This latest investment is a welcome replacement of a bundle strapper that had been well maintained and had serviced Cases24 very well for the last 10 years. A UATRI-2XT is considered the market leading and highest output bundle strapper, which fits well with the Cases24 ethos. We are delighted to have it. The uptime has been excellent so far and we expect much of the same from the next UATRI-2XT installation in February.”
