Gluer Investment for S H Fiske Ltd –

Box Stitching Machine

Paul Herson, Sales Manager at GTS (Europe) Ltd, has confirmed the company recently installed and commissioned a Gazzella TO 6400 twin headed stitcher/gluer at Bristol, UK-based S H Fiske Ltd.

The machine differs from standard models as it is raised to allow more blanks to be put on the in-feed table. “We supplied this new Gazzella machine with dual wire in-feed for single and doublewall board, as well as a hot-melt glue system,” explains Herson. “The machine is therefore capable of gluing and stitching at the same time, which is exactly what S H Fiske needed from the new machine.”

The Gazella TO 6400, which was installed in February, was chosen to replace an old stitcher gluer, as the Bristol-based packaging converter needed to increase its output of stitched and glued work for a wide range of box styles. “This is yet another installation for S H Fiske from GTS, concludes Herson. “This new machine was supplied to run alongside the Solarco boxmaker. Together with the Solarco print and die-cut capabilities, it’s giving them a complete ‘sheet plant’ offering with two machines.”
