New DYSS Digital CAD Cutting Table
The fundamental cornerstone of Dairi-Pak is exceptional customer service. Investment in both staff and technology has been instrumental to the on-going development of Dairi-Pak, a development that will certainly be taken to the next level with the installation of a DYSS X5-1625T digital cutting table from AG/CAD Limited.
Now in our 30th year of business, we have diversified down the decades from our roots in the dairy industry into the design, print and production of boxes, cases, fitments and pads, POS for all sectors. With a client list that includes some of the world’s most famous brands, Dairi-Pak has invested heavily in machinery and factory expansions throughout its history.
Dairi-Pak has always been strong in design and has had great success, using Kasemake and an AG/CAD KM sample cutting for the last decade. We have built a reputation for bringing new projects to fruition within very tight timescales, enhancing Dairi-Pak’s reputation as a leading bespoke packaging supplier.
However, in 2017, the investment program accelerated further with the arrival of a new ink kitchen, spectrophotometer, a new 4-colour Martin case-maker and a DYSS X5-1625T digital cutting table from AG/CAD to replace the previous KM sample table.
As the company has grown, more and more demands were being placed on our original KM cutter and we found a bottleneck with the production of prototypes, samples and short run work. The simple route to resolving the issue was to invest in a new, ultrafast digital cutter.
Dairi-Pak’s Operations Director, Mr Ian Ford recalls: “We recognised the KM machine was relatively slow, the bed size was restrictive to our ambitions and the material it could handle was mainly limited to single wall corrugated sheets. As a business, we have evolved to processing a wider range of fluted material”.
Dairi-Pak opted for the print register camera as an additional feature to assist the production of full colour mock up’s and small runs or even individually personalised, digitally printed boxes and POS units.
Commenting upon this ability to rapidly turn out samples, Sales & Marketing Director at Dairi-Pak, Sarah Glover says: “We have immediately rolled out a ‘sample while you wait’ service for our customers. It allows customers to visit our site, work with the designers and leave with their product packaged to their requirements. It is the high speed of the new table that enables us to do this. Customers with new product launches or unexpected repacking jobs have found this particularly beneficial.”
“A new sample room has been custom built to accommodate the new DYSS X5 cutter. This further streamlines the process of producing small volume production runs. The space this has freed is now a customer hub; a relaxed space full of inspiration and examples of packaging where customers meet with our designers and sales team to develop ideas before they are produced on the DYSS”.
