PRATI generated the sales of 21 finishing machines during Labelexpo
The sales went to Italy, Austria, Germany, France, Tunisia, Middle East, India, South Africa and US. The main attraction was the cost-efficient servo slitter inspection rewinder SATURN, also in the BOOKLET version, capable of finishing booklet labels, and the modular and versatile VEGAplus converting line, available in 330, 450 and 530 web widths, that has a powerful platform for rewinding, slitting, die-cutting, overprinting/coating, inspecting operations.
"If SATURN and VEGAplus were the sales queen, from leads and negotiations we can say that PHARMACHECK consolidated his position of unique 100% label inspection system that meets the strict requests of the pharma industry, while the new DIGITplus proved to be a reliable solution for finishing and laser die-cutting of digitally printed labels." says Chiara Prati, Sales Director at the family-run company.
"We want to thank our customers for the confidence in PRATI and all visitors for the interest in our solutions, while welcoming the new customers to the PRATI community. This is confirmation that we going in the right direction and encourages us continue with our dedication to innovation."
Labelexpo provided PRATI with the opportunity to introduce the new SATURN Linerless. The sustainable version of the slitter inspection rewinder features two interchangeable rewinder shafts to rewind the lanes in an alternate mode, to avoid rolls sticking. This enables it to perfectly manage the production of linerless label webs.
Label converters specializing in the beverage market were interested in the demonstration at Labelexpo of the JUPITER equipped with PROXIMA, the advanced detecting system. It delivers improved operator usability with clear labels, even at the maximum machine speed.
"We are extremely pleased with our Labelexpo results," comments Chiara Prati. "The show gave us the opportunity to reinforce relationships with customers, partners and establish new partnerships. The SATURN Linerless, a cost-effective and reliable solution for slitting, inspecting and rewinding of linerless labels received a great deal of interest and we see a lot of potential growth for this environmentally sustainable solution."
