Friedheim at IPEX 201721 Jul 2017 Friedheim International Ltd
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 we launched the MBO M80 range of versatile modular folders, at IPEX 2017 Friedheim are proud to 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 we have predominantly post-press and converting machines at this years show, our full range of equipment and divisions will be represented by all our national sales managers along with their sales specialists. We will be supported by our world class manufacturers with demonstrations and sales presentations running throughout the four day show.
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 has always enjoyed a rich relationship with IPEX so it was decided to go big this year. Stand 350 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.
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.”
