New WPS 600 Window Patcher Install in Illinois

Platinum Converting Adds High Speed Windowing

A new WP Speedliner 600 window patcher was installed at Platinum Converting, in Itasca, IL. The full-service graphic finishing company founded in 1998, which runs a 120,000 square foot facility, added Heiber & Schröder's equipment to be able to service a growing demand. Among the reasons for the purchase, they mentioned its precise and durable cutting, outstanding window positioning, short setup times and high processing performance.

“The ability to see what’s inside a package or envelope is critical to the success of a piece. This machine will allow us to meet the critical deadlines our customers demand.”, said Karl Gray, Vice-President Operations at Platinum Converting.



The CE Speedformer is the latest addition to our tray forming line of equipment and was recently on display at Drupa:

  • Processor controlled blank feeder with teach-in function
  • Quick and easy set-up using a single blank
  • Flextower with unique spindle adjustment
  • Quick and easy fine tuning on the fly
  • Plug-in/pull-out fixtowers (optional)
  • Servo-driven push motion, ready programmed for various tray styles and formats

New Entry Level Window Patcher: The WP Speedliner has arrived

Heiber + Schröder has launched a new window patching machine designed to suit today’s popular 3B format.

The machine not only satisfies the needs of those starting out in the process, but also offers the performance and upgradability needed by established users. You can access all of its technical details by clicking here.

Due to its technical design, this new machine is also suitable for direct combination with a downstream folder gluer, the synchronisation between the machines and the transfer of blanks between the two being ensured by an optional Heiber + Schröder mobile transfer station.

"Such flexibility reflects the thought that our engineers have put into the design of this new concept, which allows cartonmakers to run the machine as an offline window patcher or to create a complete in-line production system for window patching/lining, folding and gluing.”

While other manufacturer’s entry-level machines are stripped and simplified versions of their standard machines, this new solution is an economic and highly attractive addition to the successful Heiber + Schröder WPS, WPS-L and WP Master series of machines.

This model is designed for quick and easy changeovers combined with high machine availability. 

A key feature is that it will be both easy to use and adjust, while the machine has also been designed so that changeovers of normal windowing and lining jobs can be achieved in about 30 minutes.

Suitable for the production of very small volumes, but with the ability to manufacture the majority of standard windowed packaging formats with high performance, the new machine can be fitted with all the currently available Heiber + Schröder windowing options and can therefore grow with cartonmakers as they adjust to changing customer and market needs.
