BOBST’s SPEEDPACK Helps BOURQUIN to Achieve the Next Stage of Its Evolution

BOURQUIN, a Swiss-based and always evolving company, is a comprehensive supplier of packaging solutions to 15,000 customers across the e-commerce, pharmaceutical, medtech, wine, brewing, industrial and graphic sectors. 

BOBST supplies equipment and services to BOURQUIN as well as other packaging and label manufacturers in the folding carton, corrugated board and flexible materials industries all over the world. BOBST prides itself on keeping ahead of the latest trends in packaging by listening to its customers, understanding what they need and being able to propose solutions of the highest possible performance.

This similarity in company philosophies explains why BOURQUIN and BOBST have had such a long and successful partnership. BOURQUIN bought its first BOBST machines all the way back in 1972. Ever since, the two companies have maintained a strong relationship based on mutual trust and understanding. 

Take SPEEDPACK from BOBST for example. SPEEDPACK is a fully automatic packer, which bundles a large range of box formats and types. The modularity and productivity of SPEEDPACK make it the perfect packer for any multipoint folding-gluing line. For BOURQUIN, it was the perfect complement to its BOBST MASTERFOLD 230 A4 folder-gluer. 

SPEEDPACK is an innovative automatic packer for corrugated packaging that reportedly allows users to realize the full potential of their BOBST folding-gluing lines. With the highest possible number of batches per hour and very short set-up times, it drastically increases productivity. 

The packer gently picks up boxes as they exit the folder-gluer and batches them up in exactly the right way – quickly and reliably, while preserving the quality of the boxes. It has an exceptionally fluid operation, a minimal footprint, optimal ergonomics and excellent accessibility, making set-up times for repeat orders negligible. All of which means this robust packer can process literally any type of box, while maintaining irreproachable levels of quality. 

“Not only does the SPEEDPACK meet all our expectations perfectly, but we had a great collaboration with BOBST in the installation and set-up phase,” said Luis Manuel Luis, production manager, BOURQUIN’s Couvet site. “We are seeing all the benefits already – its reliability, flexibility, ease of use, very short set-up times and very high production rates for all types of boxes.”
