FFP have significantly invested in new machinery, including a Universal X6 Slitter, which has led them to winning the ‘Investment of the year’ award.

An FFP representative explained,
“In October 2020, we commissioned our latest investment, a new laser system which is a collaboration between Coherent and Universal Converting Equipment.

The new machine consists of a high productivity slitter from Universal Converting Equipment combined with a state-of-the-art laser machine from Coherent. This new machine represents an investment of £700,000 for FFP and has significantly enhanced our laser profiling capability and increased capacity.

Not only has the new equipment had a huge impact on the capacity of the factory allowing us to respond to customer and market demand, but it also brings with it enhanced capabilities and efficiencies.”

The positive profile of the Universal X6 continues to develop at a pace in the Flexible Packaging industry, due to a reputation for speed, reliability and many eco-aware features. When integrated with laser equipment from Coherent the Universal X6 is able to score, inspect and slit at speeds that leave competitive machines behind.

The UK Packaging Awards judges noted that,
“A great combination of investment in machinery, increasing capacity, and sustainability with the Esterseal development. Marvellous work!”
