BPC (UK) reports another significant capital investment in 2021
Friday November 12, 2021
BPC(UK) has just announced another significant capital investment for their Paper Roll Manufacturing business, as demand continues to strengthen for till rolls, leisure and transport tickets, and bespoke printed rolls following the lifting of COVID restrictions.
The BPC (UK) investment is another new technologically advanced machine, which will arrive and be installed later this year and is a fully automatic slitter for high volume production. It’s a major investment for BPC (UK) and timed around the current spiraling costs of importing finished rolls from abroad- particularly China, India, and the EU.
The latest investment is a TRR: Slitter rewinder for thermal paper rolls, plotter, and ATM rolls and is a fully automatic slitter rewinder for thermal paper and plotter rolls. This automatic machine is perfect for big production capacity as no operator intervention and assistance is required.
Some of the key features of this machine include:
• Working Width mm: 1100 (multiplies) – 1350/1600 (one ply)
• Unwind Diameter mm: 1000 (multiplies) – 1250 (one ply)
• Rewind Diameter mm: 150
• Speed: 450 meter/min
• Productivity in 8 hrs. Including time of changing mother rolls:
o 1300 Cycles for 20 meter long rolls
o 1050 Cycles for 50 meter long rolls
o 850 Cycles for 80 meter long rolls
Nick Emmett, Managing Director at BPC (UK) said “We are very busy now as a lot of users, previously buying from abroad, have started looking for UK manufacturers to protect their supply chains and customer relationships. The new purchase, with a background of increases in raw materials, is another investment by us to make our production as efficient and cost effective as possible whilst increasing our production volume capabilities.” Nick continues “With our sustainability focus on responsibly sourced materials, we have improved our offer further, for customers of any size”!
In addition to the investment, BPC (UK) now has all their team back operating the converting, slitting, and printing machines, with order books filling up fast as companies look to purchase more manufactured products from the UK following international shipping cost increases.
