Ukrainian cardboard factory Rubezhnoye digitizes cutting

With a production capacity of around 110 million square meters of corrugated board, the Rubezhnoye cardboard and packaging factory is one of the market leaders in the Ukraine. Rubezhnoye develops the packaging itself and has recently expanded this area considerably. This also includes the investment in a state-of-the-art Zünd G3 Cutter.

The compact and functional concept of the Zünd cutter will enable the company to further optimize process efficiency and continue to expand its market position in the Ukrainian cardboard processing industry. "The Zünd cutter has been working in two-shift operation since its first day of operation and the production of small orders has increased fourfold."

The trend for some years now has been that the packaging industry is increasingly turning to digital technologies. "Our customers increasingly expect individual packaging solutions and are ordering more and more small batches with ever shorter delivery times. The digital cutting solution from Zünd allows us to meet these customer needs." The Zünd G3 cutter now enables Rubezhnoye to produce even the smallest quantities efficiently and economically. This and the ability to produce prototypes quickly and in top quality were the decisive reasons why those responsible decided to use a cutting system from Zünd. "We were also convinced by the reliability and durability of the cutting solutions. And Zünd's attention to detail and competent advice and customer service are unique."

In the meantime, prototypes are created in sample production, which can hardly be distinguished from the conventionally produced large runs later. In digital cutting, this requires tools that exactly simulate the edge quality of a punching process. For this reason, Rubezhnoye decided to use the Press Cutting Tool PCT from Zünd: "The Press Cutting Tool PCT is ideal for processing corrugated board. Even with complex jobs, we achieve very precise and smooth cut edges with the PCT, even at very high cutting speeds. The result is a very high quality end product."
