Tucson Container, part of the California Box Group, has partnered with KOLBUS America and purchased a 66” x 115” three color KOLBUS Hycorr Rotary Die Cutter to be installed at their Tucson, AZ, facility. 

The innovative 115” Hycorr Rotary Die Cutter has an updated KOLBUS feed section with servo-controlled drive technology, the latest operator-machine control interface, and KOLBUS 3.60 remote diagnostics. It also features a slit and score section and Serrapid quick change die-mount cylinder. Installation is planned for early Q1 of 2022.

The partnership between Tucson and KOLBUS Hycorr dates back to 1998, when Tucson and West Texas sheet plants purchased their Hycorr 66” x 85” and 66” x 115” Rotary Die Cutters with sheet stackers from Hycorr Machine Corporation.

“Tucson Container’s changing demands of current customers led us to look into purchasing a new machine,” said David Alvarado, General Manager at Tucson Container. “We decided to go with another KOLBUS Hycorr, due to their superb service, reputation of reliability, and the success we’ve had with our first two Hycorr die cutters. They created greater value and built competitive advantages for our customers and Tucson Container.”

Chris Widera, President of Tucson Container said, “Our confidence in KOLBUS America came from comparing the performances and specifications of our eight rotary die cutters in operation in our five plants to the current market and machines.”

“We’re pleased that Tucson Container chose our state-of-the-art KOLBUS Hycorr machine and we are looking forward to this continued partnership with our longtime, valued customer,” said Jeffrey Dietz, President at KOLBUS America.
