The very first product launched by SUN Automation Group® 30 years ago, the Extend-O-Feed® Lead Edge Feeder, has come full circle - the latest state-of-the-art model plays an integral part in the company’s unique new CorrStream® digital printing solutions.
SUN Automation has its roots in providing the corrugated industry with quality, efficiency and value. The company originally revolutionized feeding with increased speed, reduced feed roll crush and jam-free operation. With over 7,000 installs around the world, the SUN Automation Lead Edge Feeder laid the foundation for quality and consistency.
Rob Dal Lago, SUN Automation General Manager, EMEA explained: “It’s a testimony to the strength, reliability and continuous improvement of our engineering that the feeder systems are so well respected, on both OEM equipment and as retrofits.”
SUN Automation has applied the same level of innovation and attention to detail used in the development of the Lead Edge Feeder, to the refinement of its class leading range of CorrStream high-output single pass, drop on demand inkjet print solutions. An in-depth understanding of box makers’ needs enables the company to add significant value to the corrugated sector, reducing the cost of printing, for example, up to 4,000m2 batch runs, and putting plants back in control of production efficiency and profitability.
Sean Moloney, Global Product Manager for Digital at SUN Automation, said: “We’ve utilized several years of development to present an industrial inkjet solution to the corrugated industry. Combining the latest inkjet technology with our expertise in corrugated sheet handling, CorrStream reduces cost by migrating low end runs from Flexo, while meeting new market demand and opportunity.”
SUN Automation’s CorrStream is equipped with the trusted Lead Edge Feeder, pairing established equipment with innovative technology. Moloney continued: “SUN Automation’s Lead Edge Feeder is part of CorrStream’s ecosystem. CorrStream’s print engine has the ability to provide industry-changing up time, reliability, unprecedented print flexibility and control. We want to help box plants discern where digital corrugated fits within their plants and markets and are highly fortunate to have such a legacy in our product listings whilst we work to place inkjet technology into high output, wide format applications.”
Well-established technology supporting new innovation and value is positioning SUN Automation at the forefront of a new era in the corrugated industry.
