MELVILLE, N.Y. (July 13, 2 p.m. ET) — Plastic and paper bag supplier Poly-Pak Industries Inc. has increased production with the addition of a Dusenbery Model 835 center slitter/rewinder from Parkinson Technologies.
Melville-based Poly-Pak needed the equipment to keep up with growing business in bag manufacturing and production of printed roll stock, according to Adam Kugler, vice president of operations.
The new machine features speeds of up to 1,500 feet per minute, which is three times faster than the two older Dusenbery units that Poly-Pak had.
“We're running the machine regularly at 1,100 feet/minute, which is much faster than the older machines,” Kugler said in a news release.
