PRATI is to showcase a raft of its innovative finishing machines at the biennial trade show, Labelexpo 2011. Visitors to the company’s stand will discover the latest finishing technologies shaping the label market. Labelexpo is the world's largest event for the label, product decoration, web printing and converting industry. This year’s show takes place in Brussels between September 28 and October 1. PRATI can be found in Hall 5 at Stand C60 with the largest booth demonstrating finishing machines.
Eight PRATI machines that have proved very popular and successful in the pharmaceutical and booklet market will be on display at the event: four slitter rewinder inspection machines, two VEGAplus converting platforms, the Pharmacheck and the VEGAplus Booklet Maker.
In addition, three other slitter rewinder machines (Type Saturn), equipped with digital inspection cameras, will be demonstrated at the booths of the camera manufacturers AVT, NIKKA and BST. NIKKA and BST will be showcasing PRATI finishing machines exclusively.
“We’ve been present at Labelexpo since 1993, so we can’t miss out this year on what’s set to be the largest ever show,” says Chiara Prati, Sales Manager at Prati, Italy. “The exhibition is an excellent forum for meeting with customers and prospects to get a better understanding of the challenges they face.
“And, of course, it’s the ideal platform to introduce our portfolio of machines and related services to a larger, worldwide audience. Visitors to our stand will see innovative systems and applications that can help them generate new revenue.”
PRATI will also use Labelexpo to highlight its response to demand for more sustainable solutions. “The Saturn Linerless, for example, is just one of our environmental friendly machines, producing zero liner waste," Prati continues.
Earlier this year PRATI opened its new plant to handle increased international demand for its solutions. "We’ve witnessed a strong economic recovery in the industry and feel confident about the future," concludes Prati. "We’re proud to have top companies and large multinational groups investing in our finishing solutions.”
