Press release from the issuing company
October 11, 2002 -- McCormick Place, Chicago — Polygraph KAMA GmbH, manufacturer of a line of die cutting machines sold and serviced by MAN Roland Inc., is adding hot foil stamping capabilities to its 29" models. The device is making its worldwide debut at MAN Roland’s Graph Expo exhibit – booth 1032 — and will be available at the start of 2003.
The enhancement comes in the form of a module that can be retrofitted on the KAMA TS 74 and TS 74 S half-size die cutting machines. It allows two foil rolls to be embossed in a single pass.
KAMA Managing Director Marcus Tralau says his company spent six months developing the innovation. He added that it is a "good example of KAMA's strategy of constantly providing better value for its customers."
Peter Hoerig, a KAMA engineer, notes that existing half-size KAMA die cutters can be retrofitted in less than 30 minutes: "This means that they can be used in a more flexible manner immediately, enabling operators to rapidly respond to new orders."
KAMA recently reported an increase in sales, registering _ 6.4 million for a 15 percent rise compared to the year before. Sales in the current business year are expected to jump further to _ 7.4 million. The company can be visited at www.polygraph-kama.de.
