EMT International Brings Expanded Finishing Portfolio to PRINT 17
HOBART, Wis. — July 26, 2017 — EMT International, a market leader in finishing equipment and transports for the high speed, digital ink jet market is set to present its expanded finishing portfolio at PRINT 17 to be held Sept. 10-14, 2017, in Chicago on booth 3819.
Commenting on EMT's products to be displayed at PRINT 17, Jim Driscoll, VP sales of EMT International, said: "We have an exciting line-up of new finishing technologies and a live demonstration that will be of interest to PRINT 17 visitors. PRINT 17 is also the platform to introduce the ROTOCONTROL high-speed finishing machine portfolio since EMT's acquisition of the German manufacturer in May this year."
Showcased will be a full roll-to-sheet finishing line that will highlight two new EMT sheet handling technologies: the Chameleon RFX Dual Head Cutter and Chameleon StatRx. Live demonstrations of the new Chameleon RFX high-speed dual head chip-cutting and stacking finishing line configuration will be featured, utilizing innovative dual-head cutting technology that allows for push-button variable size chip-cutting over a multitude of web substrates at speeds up to 800fpm.
Combining digital flexibility with offset reliability, the Chameleon RFX also features enhanced sheet handling to help reduce the effects of curl and improve stack quality. Solutions sets that benefit from the Chameleon RFX include direct mail, transactional, commercial and publishing.
The new EMT Chameleon StatRx also on display is an EMT patented solution which helps mitigate the impact of static electricity that is generated in sheet handling and inserting processes. Utilizing an EMT applicator with StatRx compound bars, StatRx lubricates the web with an invisible coating allowing sheets to slide smoothly on top of each other while maintaining the integrity of the print and substrate. StatRx integrates with digital roll-to-sheet lines, offline and nearline sheet finishing devices and more — any print finishing device where sheet handling productivity is impacted by the environment or static.
Another highlight presented will be the new line of ROTOCONTROL leading-edge finishing equipment for narrow web label inspection, slitting, rewinding, die cutting, overprinting, digital and booklet printed labels. ROTOCONTROL, a German manufacturer headquartered near Hamburg, was acquired by EMT International in May, 2017 to strengthen EMT's product portfolio and enhance the global scope of the company.
Recognized as the most innovative and comprehensive exhibition in the Americas of inkjet, digital, offset, flexo, gravure and hybrid technologies, products and services for the printing and imaging industry, PRINT 17 offers an exciting show-going experience for a diverse spectrum of attendees.
