IFS enjoyed a successful three days at this year’s Print Show, Birmingham NEC. Three Foliant laminator deals were signed while a great deal of interest was shown in the UK launch of the Horizon SmartSlitter.
States Bryan Godwyn, IFS Managing Director: “We had a great show. We signed a number of deals for our Foliant laminators and there was a lot of interest in all of our solutions including the foiling attachment for the laminators. The Horizon SmartSlitter also drew a lot of attention.”
He continues: “We had a good number of visitors and it was a great opportunity to meet so many existing customers. We were also able to start some very good new conversations and relationships.
“We have secured some business and have set up a number of meetings with operations keen to enhance their bindery capabilities. There was some great positivity at the show and we hope this continues to grow throughout the industry.”
The SmartSlitter is an all-in-one smart sheet processing system that can slit, gutter cut, edge trim, cross-cut, perforate, and crease in one pass. The highly automated system offers a host of innovative features for easy operation and production flexibility including a quick and easy to use colour touch screen.
Also on demonstration from Horizon was the BQ-270 EVA four-clamp perfect binder, the HT-30c three-side trimmer, the CRF-362 creaser folder, the StitchLiner 5500 bookletmaker with VAC AC 1000 collator and B2 AFC-566FG folder. Laminators presented were the Foliant Taurus 530SF and Vega 400.
