Currie Group has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with F Service Automation for Colibri and Phoenix glue plotters. The machines have application for point of sale and packaging solutions.

The three products in the range – Colibri 140 (1400mm x 850mm), the Colibri 200 (2000mm x 1000mm) and the Phoenix (2700mm x 1750mm).

Paul Whitehead business unit manager – sign and display at Currie Group, says, “This is a logical extension to our recent announcement with Elitron cutting systems. We are getting more into the automated and short run corrugated work through our sign and display products.

“This is the first time Currie Group has had a gluing solution in this packaging space and continues to expand our offering in the sign and display category. This solution will suit sign and display companies that are getting more into packaging. We are seeing customers move to corrugate with short run and point of sale products in the retail space and this is a perfect fit for these businesses.

F Service Automation, a family business based in Tuscany, has manufactured glue plotters since 2000. It has installed 270 machines globally.

Mark Daws, director – labels and packaging at Currie Group, says, “This expands and enhances our solutions in the packaging industry. If you think about short run packaging, you normally have to apply the glue manually. With these machines, you have less waste and less set up, allowing you to automate the process with less manual intervention.”
