Thanks to the successful implementation of a project in Sydney, Australia, our company was presented with the requirement to commission the printing process for the production of textbooks in Kuwait. The problem this time was not only in the correct application of adhesive, but in the production settings. The machines were more than 50 years old and the operators lacked both knowledge and experience.
With regard to the type of paper, it was necessary to set the book back milling operation properly. The next step was the choice of the correct adhesive, reactive PUR in this case. Adhesive must be applied in a layer with correct and constant thickness. The last step was to create a transport path on which the adhesive would have enough time to cure, and the binding would not disintegrate during handling.
Despite the short time set out by the Kuwaiti Government for commissioning, the language and cultural barriers and obsolete production technology, the production was eventually launched in the required quality. The final product was approved by the Ministry of Education, which represents 90% of our customer's sales, so is a key customer for them.
"Thank you for the cooperation and technical support on the Czech and Slovak markets, especially in the food industry, where we have been meeting more and more often. I very much appreciate our cooperation especially in the case of the new customer ASAHI – Plzeňský Prazdroj, where you presented your technical support and help with spare parts."
"Cooperation with Kaletech has enabled us to merge the supply of material under one supplier. Thanks to very careful technical support, we were able to select the most suitable materials for our production and we also recorded financial savings thanks to favourable prices. Fast and careful service of our devices represents another benefit. When considering the years of operation in the printing industry, I can say that Kaletech is one of our best suppliers."
