FL5 Carton

Single pass short run folding carton line

Combine print, cut, crease, braille embossing and waste removal into a single machine with the FL5 Carton line, ideal for short run work from 1,000 – 100,000 units and reconfigurable for a wide range of sizes and forms.

Advanced tension control, robust construction and technologies dedicated to handling paper board means that the FL5 can handle substrates up to 600 micron (24pt) thick and 510mm (20″0 wide. The FDC-510 can run in line with the FL5, combining low tooling costs with cut, crease, braille, waste stripping and diverging delivery all in a single pass.

The Edale FL5 printing and converting system running in line with the Edale FDC-510, web fed flatbed die cutter, makes a highly efficient solution specifically designed for short run folding carton production.

Key Features

  • 1.5m jumbo unwind with 12″ mandrel, pivoting splice table and web cleaning.
