Bobst inks deal to sell IMPACK’s packaging equipment

Equipment and services supplier Bobst will sell Canada-based IMPACK’s VIRTUO and ERGOSA packers in most countries of the world, as part of an agency agreement signed with the company.

The agreement covers all countries of the world except the US, Canada, and the UK, where the company has existing representation.

According to Bobst, the IMPACK equipment complements the company’ range of packers that are currently offered.

Bobst folder-gluers product marketing director Jacques Reymond said the VIRTUO and ERGOSA packers produced by IMPACK fit into the product matrix of the company’s folder-gluer peripherals in terms of capabilities as well as quality.

"They will allow us to offer turnkey solutions to customers who need carton packing capabilities on their folder-gluers, whatever materials, styles, and run lengths they handle," Reymond said.

Suited specifically for the automatic packing of micro flute and litho-laminated cartons, the VIRTUO can pack a range of carton styles including straight line and 4/6 corner boxes.

ERGOSA universal packer has been designed for low to medium volumes of straight-line and 4/6 corner boxes and bridges the gap between semi-automatic and automatic packers in the folding carton market.
