October 26, 2022 (press release) –

As the largest family-owned printing company in Hungary, Budapest-based Keskeny Printing & Packaging employs more than 400 individuals and operates a state-of-the-art machine park from its 14,000m2 premises and offers a diverse range of products, including folding card boxes, rigid-walled and collapsible rigid gift boxes and corrugated board packaging

Keskeny Printing & Packaging puts performance and automation at the heart of its production line, with a hard-fought reputation for quality through a comprehensive ISO accreditation management system.  

The Keskeny Printing & Packaging facilities comprises HQ and offices, warehousing, commercial printing, die-cutting and folding box production, alongside a dedicated plant for producing luxury collapsible boxes and shopping bags. The most recent addition to the facility is additional plant to host future expansion of collapsible pox production as the category grows. 

Keskeny Printing & Packaging purchased its first BOBST machine in 2011, and today operates five machines from the BOBST range.  

The business identified that the pharmaceutical sector was set for continued growth, and as a result, Keskeny Printing & Packaging would see production demand increasing. In response, the printer made its most recent purchase, of a BOBST EXPERTFOLD 110 folder-gluer, predominantly for use in its pharma sector packaging manufacturing operations. The installation follows the addition of a BOBST MASTERFOLD 110 folder-gluer in 2021.  

Árpád Keskeny Jr., CEO of Keskeny Printing & Packaging, explains the decision: “Our production capabilities cover a wide spectrum of products for our core markets, so for us it’s vital that we are serving the needs of our clients in the best possible way. A large proportion of our business is reaching the luxury brand market, so everything we do has to reflect that. We cannot compromise accuracy, precision and quality for speed.  

“By adding a new BOBST EXPERTFOLD 110 and MASTERFOLD 110 to our machine lineup, we are directly boosting our capabilities to match the market. Importantly for us, with high-performance folder-gluers, we are also separating the gluing process from construction, keeping clear distinctions for a more effective and clean production process. For example, with EXPERTFOLD 110, we execute single-point gluing and apply braille embossing. On MASTERFOLD, we plan more complicated operations, such as special or multiple gluing, or the use of corrugated board. By keeping our operations grouped, we achieve increased production capacity, and we have faster reaction times for our customers. In essence, we can achieve more!” 

The EXPERTFOLD range of folder-gluers is designed to empower printers through heightened efficiency. Extremely versatile, the machine can produce an impressively diverse array of box styles across in a wide range of materials, at speeds of up to 450m per minute.  

EXPERTFOLD allows printers and packaging converters to carry out additional in-line processes, such as braille embossing with ACCUBRAILLE, making it an ideal choice for printers serving the pharmaceutical industry. With short makeready and changeover times at converters’ fingertips, the intuitive and easy-to-operate EXPERTFOLD range enables productivity gains and flexibility, adapting to both present and future requirements with ease.  

Further strengthening the BOBST range, the MASTERFOLD line represents the world’s fastest, most automated, versatile and ergonomic folder-gluer. The focus is on matching high volume with pin-point precision. With setup time of just a few minutes, MASTERFOLD can turn packaging lines into non-stop operations of outstanding quality. Operating at remarkable speeds of up to 700m per minute, MASTERFOLD is driven by automation and ease of use. The machine offers a wide variety of folding options, helping packaging converters to broaden their capabilities and expand ranges.  

Árpád continues: “We sought solutions that could enhance our production workflows with speed and automation. EXPERTFOLD and MASTERFOLD both achieve this, providing fast setup on even the most complicated constructions. For us, it’s a guarantee of efficiency as well as high production quality.  

“Straight away, we feel the benefits of these high-performance machines. We increased our production capacity on crash-lock bottom by around 90%, which is an incredible accomplishment. Even more impressive is our 4-corner boxes, where we have reached a capacity nearly 5 times greater.  

“Outside of its core function, one of the strongest advantages of the BOBST equipment is that as well as being more complex in what it can accomplish, it’s compact and flexible. It gives us more setting options than competitor machines can manage, and the folding and gluing end solutions have extended variation options. 

“Over recent years, speed and reliability have climbed to the top of our agenda and are more crucial to the pharma industry than ever before as the market continues expanding. That’s why it’s so important that we have the technology to supply this for our customers, which makes BOBST a natural fit for our business!”
