Currie Group will host an ABG by Appointment Event in Melbourne next month. This follows November’s successful ‘Sign & Display By Appointment’ event in Sydney.
The event will provide a chance for private, tailored demonstrations to those in the market for label converting solutions. Bookings for the sessions at the company’s Melbourne showroom have opened.
From March 5-7, the event will take place the Currie Group headquarters in Guest Street, Hawthorn, Melbourne.
Mark Daws, director – labels & packaging ANZ for Currie Group, says business owners and key decision makers can consult directly with the experts and explore solutions configured to suit their individual business needs. He explains, “When you’re talking about business growth and capital investment, there’s no one size fits all solution.
“By creating dedicated time slots where we can focus on the needs and aspirations of a particular business, we are better able to concentrate on the key points that will answer their requirements.”
On show in Melbourne, a complete, end-to-end label production and converting workflow will feature some of the most versatile, advanced, and popular solutions from the UK-based A B Graphic International – or ABG – including the award-winning ABG Digicon Series 3 and ABG DigiLite 3 digital finishing systems and an ABG SRI3 slitter rewinder inspection system.
ABG Digicon S3 machine on show for the By Appointment event features a range of high end options including hot foil and embossing, hi-build screen, lamination and die-cutting. The Digicon S3’s modularity means you can choose from a wide range of options to configure a finishing solution to exactly match their customers’ needs. Daws adds, “The ABG Digicon Series 3 really is a flagship digital finishing system to suit even the most complex label applications.”
“While the DigiLite is obviously more of an entry level model, it’s not only ideally suited to those just entering the market; it’s also proving a popular choice with even very established label houses as a reliable workhorse which can add vital capacity and take pressure off the more hi-spec lines by providing productive converting for less complex jobs.
“Whatever the job, quality control is vital, particularly for applications like pharmaceutical labels or security products, and this is where the ABG SRI3 is invaluable. With its advanced, 100 per cent inspection camera system, it can pick up even the smallest variations, from missing text or graphic elements, to registration or colour discrepancies, to ensure absolute accuracy and consistent quality, every time.”
The end-to-end workflow will also feature the versatile HP Indigo 6K Digital Press and be driven by HP’s PrintOS, to demonstrate a ‘totally integrated, totally automated’ workflow management from receipt of job – including web-to-print – through production to delivery, Mark says.
Complementing the product showcase will be a team of experts, including ABG sales manager, Mark Hyde. Local product specialists from both Currie Group and other partners will join him.
Daws adds, “We are incredibly fortunate to have outstanding relationships with OEM partners like ABG, as we do with our customers.
“It’s these connections which really drive success and we can’t wait to bring it all together for label businesses in Melbourne this March.”
