Central Florida Press Adds a Bobst Diecutter to Boost Production
ORLANDO—Jan. 10, 2012—Always a leading innovator among the top printing companies in the Southeast region, Central Florida Press (CFP) recently installed new equipment. Acquiring a Bobst Novacut 106 diecutter for paper and/or board products serves a dual purpose of strengthening operations and setting a course for future growth, said Greg Orlando, company president.
“Bobst has an excellent reputation in the printing industry and we’re familiar with its track record. Packaging Graphics, our sister company in Pawtucket, RI, has used Bobst diecutters for a very long time and they’ve performed extremely well for them,” Orlando noted.
“We made this purchase decision for two reasons,” he continued. “It immediately supports our current customer base and gives us total control of the production process and turnaround times, therefore eliminating our reliance on outsourcing work to third parties. We also believe this equipment will give us the opportunity to compete and expand in markets that were previously unavailable to us.”
CFP has wisely taken advantage of the technological advances that have changed the printing industry in the last 10-15 years, including the creation of proprietary automated systems to significantly reduceproduction time. The new Bobst diecutter is state-of-the-art and designed to improve performance and versatility.
The manufacturer is quick to promote the machine’s high running speeds, short changeover times and easy operation, in addition to its integrated electronics, highly accurate register systems and double cam gripper bar advance. Installation of the diecutter was completed last week, followed by training of CFP’s two shift crew.
Central Florida Press is one of the largest, multi-faceted commercial printers in the southeastern U.S. Founded in 1983, CFP in 2005 became a division of The MATLET Group, a certified Minority Business Enterprise and Corporate Plus® member of NMSDC.
