Do you have a clear vision of how to achieve the best results possible?

fc cartons have two Heiber and Schröder Window Patchers. The Heiber + Schroder, Rotary Window Patching and Carton Lining Machine. The Master feeder is the ultimate answer to a great variety of carton blank profiles for the packaging industry. It allows different run modes to achieve optimum speed with minimum marking. A patented mono-belt vacuum transport behind squaring chains for the highest and unrivalled accuracy in patching with missing window detection and marking device.

We have continually invested in the latest and best equipment available, we have one of only a handful of 1100 Masters in the country, we also have a second Heiber and Schröder 1100 Window Patcher which provides part of the most complete and comprehensive finishing solutions facility available in the market place today.

Team fc have a vast experience and expertise in a wide variety of carton designs, our skilled workforce are able to process many different and difficult profiles. If you are unsure which material would be best suited for your particular carton design, we are happy to advise and even supply the material upon request.

Unsure your design is even possible, why not use our Innovation Centre our Technical Development Team will be happy to help and advise. They will run trials using our knowledge, experience and expertise. Our customers’ and potential customers approach fc to establish the technological possibility of achieving a specific Window Patching solution.

We have been surprised at the speed and demand for change from the plastic option to cardboard, paper based biodegradable products. Team fc have attained and retained a carbon neutral status for 12 years now and understand that we must all work towards a position where we only use paper based materials, which can be recycled in any paper waste stream, or can degrade in compost or landfill conditions, back to natural fibres without any harm to the environment or If it ends up in our oceans, it will harmlessly break down to natural fibres. There are materials available that satisfy this requirement!

We provide all of this within our 36,000 sq.ft. Production Hub and in a ‘BRCGS AA grade’ environment which ensures we achieve the most efficient and highest quality of finishing, together with exacting standards of hygiene and environmental care.

Managing Director David Woodyatt commented

“Our ultimate challenge is to find ways our finishing can produce solutions which we are told are not possible within the equipment’s capability”
