SPGPrints reports eight system sales and record number of visitors at Labelexpo Europe 2015
SPGPrints recorded a successful Labelexpo Europe 2015, achieving a combined total of eight printing and prepress system sales and – for the first time at a Labelexpo series event - recording more than 500 inquiries at its stand.
Sales highlights included DSI® digital UV-inkjet label press sales to the USA and Spain, three RotaLEN® laser engraving systems for nickel rotary screens to converters in Brazil, Poland and Russia, and RSI® (Rotary Screen Integration) units to Asian and European label printers.
Bas Hoijtink, commercial manager graphics at SPGPrints, comments: “The DSI UV-inkjet system has proven to be the platform for system cost savings through variable data printing and high-impact graphics that drive point-of sale brand success for label printers in Europe and America. With our live demonstrations of customer-commissioned jobs, visitors had a first-hand appreciation of the flexibility, quality and substrate versatility offered by the technology – and an idea of the high-level support that is essential for successfully integrating a digital print workflow.”
SPGPrints offers complete workflow solutions for users of both its digital and rotary screen printing technology. Complementing the DSI UV-inkjet press are the company’s own specially formulated inks, with low-migration alternatives for food applications, and software.
A live workshop at the stand gave insight into the simplicity and fast turnaround time of SPGPrints’ rotary screen digital pre-press workflow. Using customer files, application engineer Wim Claassen imaged the company’s nickel re-engravable RotaMesh and re-usable RotaPlate® screens on the RotaLEN engraver on demand.
“Printers supplying the cosmetics, food and beverage markets also showed great interest in SPGPrints’ rotary screen printing solutions because of their unique capability of delivering high-value tactile features, productively and for a lower total ownership cost,” commented Mr. Hoijtink.
