“Feedback is extremely important to us, and this is why we have some many options/upgrades available to our machines,” said Wallack. As an example, Wallack cites Norden Packaging’s NM700—what he calls the company’s “workhorse” model. The NM700 runs at 70 tubes per minute, and has been very popular because of its quick changeovers. When customers came to Norden looking for a machine that ran at similar speeds but at a lower cost, the company took the opportunity to create a machine that went beyond both requirements. The NM602 matches the running speed of the NM700 and is significantly less expensive. The “bonus” is that it utilizes less size parts than the NM700, making changeovers faster and saving customers more money.
“We’re always trying to make our machines as user-friendly as possible,” said Wallack. “Customer relations are equally important to us. We want our customers to be fully satisfied with our product and service. There are always going to be advancements and changes in our industry. Our company takes a lot of pride in finding solutions to new challenges.”
