PrintEx News: Neopost making finishing easy
Neopost has brought a broad suite of solutions to its stand at PrintEx, including the Multigraf Touchline CF-375 creaser/folder.
Stand F28 has something for just about every customer, including lamination; digital foiling; spot UV; booklet making; and slitting, cutting, folding, and creasing, says Jimmy Nguyen, national product manager for graphics at Neopost.
“The focus of this year’s stand is on different applications. We’re trying to put together solutions for our customers from printing to finishing. Depending on what they require, we have the right solution for them,” he said.
Tactile embellishments such as spot UV can add value to print, adds Nguyen.
“Customers can touch and feel the print. It helps printers convey the message a bit more, compared to just a flat print,” he said.
Outside the embellishing space, one highlight of the stand is the Swiss Multigraf Touchline CF-375 creaser/folder. According to Patrick Lerch, CEO of Multigraf, the CF-375’s single-pass creasing and folding eliminates the risk of cracking.
“This is for the digital market. It doesn’t care if the stock is 80gsm or 400gsm – the CF-375 offers the best quality,” he said. “We give customers short installation times and reduced labour costs to help provide better quality, faster jobs.”
Lerch says Neopost has been a great partner for Multigraf in the Australian market, where there are around 250 of the manufacturer’s machines installed.
“It’s an important market for us, and I can’t see us using any other partner,” he said.
Neopost is also using the stand to promote its new partnership with Belgian finishing equipment manufacturer C.P. Bourg, says Nguyen.
“This will take us to the next level of automation. We can now do in-line saddle stitching, booklet making, and perfect binding with all the major digital press brands. We’re excited to be able to fill in that gap in our range.
“We’re all about making finishing more efficient for printers, allowing them to generate more revenue and get things out quicker,” he said.
