Wallace Carlson Printing [WCP], a leading paperboard packaging provider, has improved capital resources to increase its folding carton production capacity with the addition of Leary gluing and quality assurance systems.
Charlie Cox, the Chief Operations Officer for WCP, concisely stated that the company mission is “always to offer the best to its customers. Continuous development in machinery and technology helps advance quality and customer satisfaction, profitability, and heightened sustainability.”
The paperboard packaging industry is capital intensive. Trialing innovations, technologies, and automation trends can be time-consuming and expensive. Still, it guarantees the highest level of quality, and when successful, it can give companies like Wallace Carlson a competitive edge. The organization invested four million dollars into new presses, die-cutters, and print flow technology. Processes and automation had drastically improved, leaving a bottle-necked post-press. Sourcing a folder gluer with seamless gluing and inspection integration was necessary to maintain quality and production success. The purchased machine is a Brausse TA 900 folder gluer, equipped with a Leary glue application system which the OEM highly recommended. Cox shared, “I had a good experience with Leary previously, and this recommendation reassured me about becoming a repeat customer.” The Wallace Carlson team can continue to delivery customer orders and jobs that are monitored constantly with technologically advanced gluing and quality solutions.
Leary provided WCP with an Array LS-916 controller outfitted with three cold glue application valves, three hot melt valves, a glue regulation system, and Monet Operating System. This Leary system helps Wallace Carlson Printing meet demands while providing highly secure packaging to their customers – a must in the industry they service. The system utilizes uniquely automated software that eliminates human error, which can impede any gluing process. This security ensures precise system settings are maintained to deliver the highest product quality possible. Integration of the Brausse folder gluer and Leary Monet software delivers the quickest make-ready times for hardware and software setup which ensures production quality and efficiency.
When asked why Charlie Cox chose a Leary system, he said, “The ease of operation and intuitive software to deliver quality exceeds in-field expectations.” Cox also added that “compared to other systems which can be cumbersome to train and understand, the Leary software is the easiest to train on – delivering the fastest setup times.”
The Leary system continues to run “flawlessly,” utilizing its software and hardware integration for unique technologies. The security features in Monet software maintain system settings and support glue application and quality standards.
Cox says that he will, “absolutely hands down,” purchase from Leary again because “choosing a Leary system ensures that customers receive the highest quality level.” Under the direction of Charlie Cox, Wallace Carlson Printing will continue to invest in innovative equipment that puts its customers first.
