Case Paper Steps into the Future with New Equipment
Celebrating its 70th anniversary, Case Paper continues to lead the industry pursuing the latest technology to bolster its converting services and boost production with accelerated turnaround times for customers.
The Philadelphia plant recently purchased a new MDH Dual Knife Rotary Sheeter from Maxson Automatic Machinery Company. Case Paper’s fourth precision sheeter and the third from from Maxson, the MDH Sheeter is designed to sheet up to four webs of light weight grades of paper or heavier board grades. The MDH Sheeter’s compact design allows Case to efficiently run both short and long production orders. The Sheeter’s versatility empowers Case Paper to efficiently accommodate the needs of digital, folio, and large format sheet markets, delivering press ready skids to their customers.
Case Paper has also invested in a new custom-built Catbridge Two Drum Surface Slitter Winder. Precision engineered at 86 inches wide and able to perform up to 20 cuts, the slitter winder will go as narrow as two inches. The new machine will increase high-quality production, enhance finished roll quality, and provide customers with fast, reliable converting at any volume.
These acquisitions follow up last summer’s installation of a second new sheeter at the Chicago branch. With these new capabilities, Case Paper continues to excel in delivering quality products expeditiously with one-to-one sales and customer service.
“We have always believed that an increasingly competitive market requires substantial inventory and the ability to convert within 24 to 48 hours,” affirmed Robin Schaffer, President of Case Paper.
Case Paper commenced operations in 1943 in New York City, and since then has opened facilities across the US. Of its eight locations, Philadelphia is the largest production facility with 720,000 sq.ft. of warehousing and converting.
Opening last year, Case Paper Dallas, located in Arlington, TX, is the most recent satellite expansion, with a 20,000 sq. ft. facility.
