Following on from a year packed full of successful exhibitions and open houses, Friedheim International will be exhibiting at IPEX 2017 with one of the largest stands at the show, boasting some of the most advanced print finishing equipment on offer today.
At IPEX 2014, Friedheim International launched the MBO M80 range of versatile modular folders, at IPEX 2017 they will proudly present the UK launch of the MBO K80 high speed combination folder, along with the UK launch of the Bograma Servo 550 BASIC short run die-cutter.
Joining these two machines will be the KAMA ProFold 74 running over 5000 capacity folders and hour, an Herzog + Heymann creasing line running direct mail work, Komfi’s crown jewel the Sagitta 76 laminator along with the best-selling Komfi Amiga 52 with OTF ready to run custom foiling jobs at the show. The line-up wraps up with a 78 and a 115 guillotine from Schneider and BaumannWohlenberg respectively and a Zechini Roby Junior 2 compact, semi-automatic case maker.
Although Friedheim International is predominantly showing post-press and converting machines at this year’s show, the full range of equipment and divisions will be represented by its national sales managers along with its sales specialists.
Mark Bristow, Managing Director says “We decided to go with a much larger stand this year due to the current demand for our equipment. With shorter runs, the requirement for automation, the consolidation of various businesses and the need to be more economical with their work flow, our customers look to us to give them the best advice and best equipment to meet these challenges.”
Friedheim International has always enjoyed a rich relationship with IPEX so it was decided to go big this year. Stand F350 is 195m2 and will be a complete production work space, with actual real-world jobs running throughout each day. Format and job changes live on the stand, along with best work practices from Friedheim’s team of experienced technicians and demonstrators.
“It’s a great testimony to the relationship Friedheim International has with IPEX that they will be supporting us again this year with a bigger than ever presence, launching new solutions as well as showing the breadth of their offering.”, commented IPEX Event Director, Rob Fisher.
Stuart Bamford, National Sales Manager – Post-Press says “IPEX is the perfect venue to launch the MBO K80 folder for the UK market, we did it last time with the M80 and it turned out really well for us, we hope to recapture some of the magic this year too. The K80 is perfectly poised for the UK market, at its price point, there isn’t a faster, more quality folder with this level of automation and advanced control, and the customers we took to the Baumann open house who saw it in June, were truly impressed.”
IPEX is the UK’s longest running international print show. The event takes place from 31st October to 3rd November 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham. IPEX 2017 will be a showcase of innovation, technology and print in action, covering a range of applications including printing, software, digital, and finishing. Online visitor registration is open and IPEX is free to attend, visitors are advised to register early to avoid the queues and take advantage of travel discounts and event updates.
