Creative print finishing systems manufacturer Petratto has responded to demand from printers looking to enhance and expand their portfolio of short run services with the launch of the Petratto METRO Startup. Petratto is distributed in the UK by Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS).
Petratto is a leading innovator in the development of industrial post-press paper and board processing and converting solutions. Its hands-on understanding of the challenges and requirements of this fast-evolving sector informs the often unique character of its innovations – from feeders and scorers through to complex automated die-creasing and folder-gluing systems. It is continuously looking to develop new solutions, often in partnership with clients to address specific requirements.
The 200 meters per minute compact footprint, single operator, entry level, Petratto METRO Startup, semi-automatic folding and gluing machine is the latest addition to its growing portfolio. It is ideally suited to the production of short run packaging, including cartons, boxes and sleeves. It supports a maximum format of 78cm x 78cm and grammages up to 400gsm.
The Petratto METRO Startup can be upgraded at a later date to a Petratto METRO MINI or a complete Petratto METRO 78 model providing operations with a clear and supported growth path.
“This entry level, low cost, folding and gluing solution is perfectly positioned to help printers diversify and enter new markets,” explains Eric Keane, IFS Managing Director. “Operations can cost effectively explore new opportunities with the confidence of knowing they can scale up operations as and when their business grows.”
The Petratto METRO Startup is available now.
