Doggett’s productivity set to rise with arrival of new Drupa guillotines

The Polar 137N+ will be installed in the Sydney plant and the Polar 115N+ in Adelaide as replacements for older, less-automated models.

NSW operations manager Glenn Devallance said the 137N+ would make his site safer and more productive.

“This guillotine is highly automated and removes many of the manual handling tasks, making it much easier for the operator,” he said.

The 137N+ has a cutting size of 113.7x145cm and features a new knife-changing system that Devallance said “dramatically reduces down time compared to the old guillotines”.

Doggett’s has been using Polar guillotines for many years, according to Heidelberg NSW branch leader Richard Timson.

“At Drupa, Doggett’s was able to see the advantages of the high level of automation the new generation machines feature,” he said.

“These machines are robust, highly productive and when backed by our service and support, a sound investment.”
