Print finishing equipment manufacturer A B Graphic International (ABG) has launched two new winder solutions.
Currie Group supplies ABG solutions in New Zealand.
The two new winder solutions are a non-stop unwinder and a non-stop rewinder.
Based on existing designs by strategic partner, Kocher & Beck, the two new winder solutions mark ABG’s first entry into the splicing arena. Manufactured at ABG’s Spanish facility, both systems suit medium to long runs. ABG says they target increased productivity, improved product quality, and reduced material waste.
Both winder solutions have a range of applications. ABG says they integrate with any existing set up, including presses, finishing equipment, and converters. It adds that the new winders provide customers with increased flexibility.
ABG’s standard non-stop unwinder system ensures the non-stop feed of web-type materials. The non-stop unwinder system provides continuous rewinding of a self-adhesive matrix produced with a label cutting and printing process.
Matt Burton, ABG’s global sales director, says, “Our winder systems complement our portfolio of finishing solutions. They provide customers with complete flexibility, especially as they are so adaptable to your current set up.
“As an added plus, we fully expect that both systems will help provide productivity improvements. This will help our customers generate return on investment quickly.”
ABG has a number of solutions available in New Zealand such as its digital embellishment module. The company has also formed a partnership with HP Indigo. ABG will supply finishing for the new HP Indigo to supply the high speed finishing required for the HP Indigo V12 press.
Established in 1954, ABG is a market leader in digital finishing equipment. The company has nearly 400 employees worldwide, with more than 200 employed in the UK. During the course of its 66 years of business, ABG has installed over 11,000 machines worldwide for 2,500 customers.
