New UPM DIGI packaging for Xeikon reels

(UPM, Helsinki, October 26, 2006) - UPM has developed a new octagonal carton box for Xeikon reels. “It’s pretty obvious at first sight that this carton box is different from regular models,” says Frithjof Vorrath, Manager UPM DIGI Paper.

The new box for 50-cm-wide Xeikon reels has eight corners instead of the usual four. And that is exactly this feature which yields extra benefits: The creasing provides the box with clearly higher stability compared with the rectangular model. Additionally, the compact, octagonal form of the new box makes reel handling at the printing press easy.
