The latest model in the Ultima™ machine family has been unboxed—our 295 QS Ultima™. It brings flexibility and top-class performance to the larger box segment, and by adding this machine size to the corrugated packaging industry, EMBA Machinery Inc. now offers a machine range that will cover many of its customers’ needs.
Besides the outstanding output, the 295 QS Ultima™ has all the features and benefits recognized in the other Ultima™ machines like quick-set, true non-crush converting technology, four shaft slotter featuring the two sheets converting in one revolution doubling output, up to six printing units with either rubber doctor rolls or closed chamber doctor blade system and naturally, for this size of machine, the well proven heavy duty bottom die-cutter.
The 295 QS Ultima™ features the special DualBox™ innovation in its standard configuration. Equipped with the extended four shaft Magna XL VSC Slotting enables making all slots of both sheets in the slotting unit at speeds up to 27,000 boxes per hour without any tolerance variations between the boxes. DualBox™ is already available as an option for the 245 QS Ultima™ and without a doubt much appreciated by users around the world. An encouraging testimony of this is the fact that the majority of the 245 QS Ultima™ machines specified by our customers are with the DualBox™ feature.
The 295 QS Ultima™ includes the latest addition to our Ultima controls platform: CareControl™, a full condition monitoring system containing production data and statistics, full historic machine data for enhanced support, automatic countdown to next maintenance, dynamic on-screen maintenance manuals, plus machine “fingerprint”—a regular health check tool for machine function analysis, and building data for real predictive maintenance.
“With our true non-crush converting to increase box strength and allow paper grammage reduction, the 295 QS Ultima™ offers great potential for better sustainability also to the larger box operations in the 114 machine segment,” says George Linn, Director North American Sales, EMBA Machinery Inc. “and with its energy efficiency optimization through fully regenerative servo motion control with power factor correction, it provides much better energy efficiency compared to conventional machines.”
Linn concludes, “It creates great customer value by the fact all sizes are based on the Ultima™ technical platform with the same technologies and benefits and with a high degree of recognition for operation and maintenance.”
