GFI Innovations Ships First Mx-Series Dispenser to Europe
CHICAGO—March 26, 2012—GFI Innovations, manufacturer of the popular Mx-Series dispensing equipment, has just shipped their first machine to Europe. The Mx12 dispenser will be installed in Switzerland.
“Obviously it’s an exciting time for us to be shipping equipment internationally. With help from the internet and praising word of mouth, our reach is growing quickly. More and more printers are realizing how simple and profitable the technology makes their color matching process,” says Robert Luehrsen, president of GFI Innovations.
The Mx12 is a private labeled unit for the Sun Chemical, and is based off the same technology as GFI’s Mx6 dispenser. Using the EcoFlow cartridge system, both dispensers give printers the ability to manufacture spot colors in-house without any ink or color expertise. Cost savings are typically between 30-50 percent over colors made by hand at an ink branch, and the systems also allow printers to recycle their old ink inventory into new colors.
“This particular unit will be used for Metal Decorating ink, a new market for us. The high viscosity nature of the ink works really well with the EcoFlow, and opens a lot of doors for us. With the international exposure and our other growth initiatives, I’m confident we’re going to beat our best year again in 2012,” added Luehrsen.
GFI Innovations’ award winning Mx-Series technology gives printers the ability to manufacture spot colors on their pressroom floors faster, more consistently, and more profitably than is otherwise possible. Current clients have successfully recycled thousands of pounds of old ink into new colors, and have accumulated millions of dollars in ink savings through a more efficient procurement process.
