Jamestrong to install KBA MetalStar 3 in Milperra
A recent deal between Jamestrong Packaging – Australia & New Zealand and KBA MetalPrint will see the former installing a one unit, eight-colour decorating line at its Milperra (NSW, Australia) facility.
The MetalStar 3 is the largest metal decorating press from KBA to date and can process up to 10,000 sheets per hour.
John Bigley, managing director at Jamestrong Packaging, said of the deal: “This is a huge step forward for us from a technology point of view. This will be a leading line in the southern hemisphere, particularly in our market. With the infant formula market being so demanding now in terms of print quality, it will really take us to the next level. Flexibility and responsiveness are key in our business, and with the number of changeovers and the short lead times we have, the KBA Metalstar 3 will give us a big advantage and enable us to respond quickly to our customers’ needs.
The line is expected to be installed and operational towards the end of 2016.
