Hitek meets demands from challenged boxmaking industry
With all the challenges our industry has faced in the past few years, Hitek has noticed a demand for quicker setups, easy maintenance, and shorter runs. Hitek has been leading the industry for over 30 years in just-in-time packaging. The demand for this has never been higher.
All these demands on our customers have resulted in a significant increase in tooling. With this has come an unexpected need for a larger footprint in many plants to store all this new tooling. Hitek introduced BCM Storage Systems to the market in 2008 and has put in systems all over the country. Hitek works with customers to examine their space constraints, tooling quantities, and budget to create a custom solution to our customer’s specific needs for cutting dies and print plates.

The Marumatsu Diamond can set up and run an order faster than most machines can even set up, all while removing the scrap with no tooling. These advantages and advanced technologies make the Marumatsu Diamond the perfect machine to put the maximum profit in any order.
