Landaal Packaging Systems has selected the J & L Mark 5 Specialty Glue Machine as they expand their manufacturing capabilities within the Bay City, Michigan facility.
The J & L Mark 5 is a top-of-the-line, specialty gluer that provides unmatched processing speeds, accuracy and capabilities.
“As we continue to grow our standard box and point of purchase business line, this type of automation is essential to handle the demand”, says Robert Landaal, the Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This not only improves upon our current capabilities but it also allows us to manufacture some automatic locking cartons that we were unable to produce in the past.”
Purchasing this machine required an intensive research process for Landaal Packaging Systems. They first created a list of essential features that they desired. After the features were identified, they began the learning process as the operation team researched machines from several manufactures. Following several on-site tours and demonstrations, Landaal selected Alliance Machine Systems as their partner of choice for this equipment.
“After careful consideration, we felt that the J & L machine was the technology that suited our needs the best,” Robert shared. “The J & L has the speed we were seeking along with the technology to ensure that the highest quality standards will be met.”
Landaal Packaging Systems specializes in both standard style corrugated containers and point of purchase (POP) display product lines. Specialty Gluer machines aid in the manufacturing of these products by automatically sealing the required glue tabs with minimal manual labor.
This machine is the latest in a long line of equipment enhancements that the company has committed to in recent years. The list includes multiple new digital print machines, a 5-color die cut machine, automated material cutters and a state of the art production robot.
