Packaging Personified Orders Koenig & Bauer Flexo Press

Packaging Personified, Carol Stream, Illinois, will install a new a new eight-color Koenig & Bauer Evo XG Mod 140 press this spring.

The firm employs more than 230 between its 137,000 square-foot facility in Illinois and 105,000 square-foot facility in Michigan, with an eye toward a third facility in the future.

“[The press] is a key part of our $10 million spend in the past 18 months,” said Joe Imburgia, Packaging Personified’s General Manager. “It is giving us a higher speed of 2,000 feet per minute and will significantly increase capacity along with higher productivity.”

Unique to PPI’s press is its inline spectrophotometer, which allows PPI to get a valid color measurement all inline and help to manage density and dot gain.

Recently, with a focus on sustainability, the company introduced its lamination replacement films that provide an alternative material to common PE/PET laminations. This film reportedly eliminates the need to combine multiple substrates and as a result maintains recyclability while still providing the strength and rigidity necessary for many applications, including pouch packaging.

Packaging Personified annually receives a SQF (Safe Quality Food) certification audit that evaluates if PPI’s systems are functioning properly in order to prevent contamination, helps the company maintain consistency, and provides third party credibility to its food packaging customers. This year one of PPI’s locations achieved the highest possible score of 100 percent.
