AdamsTech Installs Third Penta Dieboard Laser in Less Than Six Months

Solon, OH, March 29, 2016

AdamsTech completes another Penta die board laser installation at Ohio’s innovative consumer packaging provider, CardPak. The new laser was installed along with a second EasyBender steel rule bender/processor.

Today AdamsTech announced the successful installation of a new Penta dieboard laser with Rofin-Sinar laser source at the CardPak headquarters. This is their third installation of its kind in the past six months, with more in the works. CardPak reports that it is very pleased with the installation of the laser and the new EasyBender and that they have already increased production significantly.

According to Greg Ward, die making product manager for North America, an installation of this type requires extensive and careful planning. Greg says, “Our team began the pre-installation planning as soon as CardPak made the decision to purchase this upgrade to their existing dieshop operations. We arranged the shipping and importation, customs clearance, scheduling and rigging, as well as planning with electricians and other outside contractors. We were also able to assist CardPak in the layout and positioning of the equipment to maximize efficiency in their workflow.”
