Kala, French manufacturer of wide format print finishing equipment, will be exhibiting their award winning Mistral 1650 at this years’ Fespa show. The 65” heat-assist roll laminator received the product of the year award in the laminator category at SGIA 2015.
The Mistral 1650 is testament to Kala’s devotion to design and technology, giving even the most demanding of users an easy to use and efficient machine and offering by far the best value for money in its class. It handles single side lamination with the option of simultaneous mounting (substrates up to 2” thick), single pass encapsulation, tape application and coloured backgrounds.
The stand out features of the Mistral are its light self-blocking roll shafts bringing a valuable time saving to roll changes and a patented pressure adjustment system which maintains a uniform pressure across the rollers. It even saves on workshop space with a small footprint and convenient low-level storage for 4 rolls. Kala also now offer the perfect accompaniment to the Mistral, the new KalaXY 1650 automatic cutter.
Founded in 2003 and now a European market leader, Kala credits its success to its advanced approach to technology, efficient network of qualified distributors (through which is has a presence in 80 countries) and a considered approach to the environment.
The Mistral and the KalaXY 1650 can be seen in action on stand G120 in Hall 1.
