We are talking with Andrey Savyuk, Head of Corrugated Packaging Development Department at Kyiv Cardboard and Paper Mill
“Andrey, tell us how you came up with this idea?”
“Today, tens of thousands of our citizens are forced to spend days and nights in basements, often right on the floor. In addition, temporary accommodation centers for refugees do not always have time to arrange the appropriate conditions for a large flow of people.
“This is a huge inconvenience and harm, especially for pregnant women, the elderly, people with health problems. We have designed and plotted an experimental batch of modular corrugated board beds. They can withstand human weight, have good thermal insulation and durability.
“The initiative received a wide response – we were approached by many volunteer organizations. However, the plotter does not allow to produce beds in large quantities.
“At the moment, we are improving the design of beds so that the modules can be produced on flatbed die-cutters (BOBST MASTERCUT 1.6, BOBST MASTERCUT 2.1). This will make it easy to assemble the product on the spot, like a constructor out of the box.”
“What production volumes do you plan to reach?”
“If we start production on three flatbed die-cutters, we will be able to produce several thousand beds per hour.”
“Thanks for the interesting news! We will definitely return to this topic when you implement your plan.”
