Why just spend money, when you can invest in the future?


Watermill Press a labelling manufacture based in United Kingdom has invested £160.000 in a Lundberg Tech waste handling system

Watermill Press a labelling manufacture based in United Kingdom has invested £160.000 in a Lundberg Tech waste handling system. Watermill Press managing director Dale Deacon said the new automated, continuous waste extraction process will bring three main benefits to the firm.

“The first benefit is that we are able to run our presses faster because we can strip our waste matrix on the press more cleanly and efficiently than when we used to rewind the waste up into rolls,” said Deacon.

“We’ve also lost all the downtime we used to have when we had to stop the press to cut the waste rolls out when they’d built up to a given diameter.”

The firm’s operators previously had to physically transport waste rolls out to the waste areas outside the building, throw them into the skip and then come back in and start up the press again.

“This will increase our overall factory efficiency – we’ve calculated it should increase throughput by over 10%,” said Deacon.
