StarPak Makes Heavy Investment in W&H Printing and Extrusion Machinery

Houston-based StarPak is boosting capacity with three new presses (one VISTAFLEX and two MIRAFLEX II) and a VAREX II blown film line.

Their newest 67”, 10-color VISTAFLEX press is up and running and makes StarPak W&H’s largest VISTAFLEX customer worldwide. The company also ordered two 52” 10-color MIRAFLEX II presses, which will be operational later this year along with the 134” 5-layer VAREX II.

Besides unprecedented speed, benefits of the VISTAFLEX include the ability to prepare and store up to five additional jobs while the press is running. Line speeds can reach 2,625 ft/min. The MIRAFLEX II range is capable of speeds of up to 2,000 ft./min. One MIRAFLEX II will be equipped with an inline flexo station.
