Young Shin Meridian 170 and STOCK 109D Single Face Sheeter

Young Shin USA has been serving the needs of Packaging Corporation of America (formerly Boise Paper) in Salt Lake City, Utah since 2007. In order to serve the needs of a valued client, the firm evaluated the opportunity to invest in the equipment necessary to produce and sheet single-face corrugated. The features, reliability and low operating costs of the STOCK Model S109D-57Q provided the firm’s solution to integrate this process into their existing operation. The Model S109D-57Q comprehensively handled the sheeting and stacking of single face corrugated and provided the continuous run times and production speeds that would accommodate the quantities required by their client. Packaging Corporation of America is proud of its stellar maintenance department and due to their skill and expertise the firm has not had the need for a service call in over five years.

Following the successful installation of the STOCK single-face sheeter, the firm determined that a new, high-speed automatic flatbed die cutter would further its productivity and advance its capabilities to end-users. The die cutter would be tasked for high-productivity jobs, with an easy-to-use make-ready device that would accommodate overhung litho laminated sheets. In response to that need, Young Shin USA Limited proposed its Meridian 170 die cutter and the many advantages offered by that product prompted its purchase and installation at the plant in 2010. With continuous operation of the Young Shin Meridian over the past five years, annual replacement part sales have averaged under $9,000. The Meridian’s design and engineering has yielded optimum performance efficiency and continuous operation to meet the needs of Packaging Corporation of America. Beyond normal maintenance that is handled by the local plant personnel, the Meridian has not required a service call in over seven years.
