Gämmerler's Product Range Successful at drupa

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

Press release from the issuing company

Geretsried-Gelting, August 5th, 2008 – Gämmerler's first drupa under the company's new management was a great success. Visitor turnout was high at Gämmerler's booth and the quality of the discussions with customers and prospects proved there is a great interest in the company's range of products. Sales totalled several million Euros with the majority of sales coming from South America. Many of the customer projects initiated at drupa have subsequently been successfully completed.

The highest proportion of visitors came from commercial printing. Gämmerler's newspaper and bindery exhibits also attracted attention. All in all the market potential was high in Germany and Western Europe. South America and Eastern Europe also showed a clear increase in the propensity to invest.

"During the numerous discussions with our visitors it became evident that Gämmerler products meet the current needs of the printing industry exactly. Not only did our finishing lines and exhibits create high interest, but also the whole trade fair appearance was well received and reflected the high importance Gämmerler attaches to quality and innovation", remarked Paul Semrau, Director Sales and Marketing.

Gämmerler's new EM 140 bumpturn was of particular interest to visitors. Due to its 45°-technique, the EM 140 is able to optimally convert kinetic energy resulting in smooth operation even at high speeds. This new technology allows the EM140 to successfully run a wide range of copy formats.

Following the market trend toward high page count copies, Gämmerler has developed the RS 164 rotary trimmer. Using Gämmerler's latest cutting technology that incorporates double knives, the RS 164 eliminates shingle nick. Customers visiting Gämmerler at drupa were impressed by the easy and safe accessibility of the machine.

Compensated stacking was represented by the ZL 810 newspaper compensating stacker. The highly flexible ZL 810 is able to process both high and low page count products by means of a separating shovel or finger which makes the ZL 810 unique and offers the customer a great advantage.

Many booth visitors educated themselves on the LS 500 logistic system, which was demonstrated at drupa 2008 for the first time. This system allows printers to increase productivity through the use of a central control system and by monitoring the entire postpress area. Precise copy tracking, analyses of waste volumes and numerous other functions available to the customer through the LS 500 provide customers with the opportunity for considerable improvement potential. At present the major markets for this product are Germany and Western Europe. Applications are expected for this modular system in other markets as well.
