Explore! GBC’s new frontiers in print finishing at drupa 2008
With this year’s drupa promising to be the biggest-ever in the fair’s history, GBC is planning a memorable show. During live demonstrations, GBC will present their equipment and consumables for a variety of printing processes and applications.
“Customers visiting drupa will be able to explore GBC’s new frontiers in print finishing thanks to the company’s extensive range of laminating and finishing solutions”, Arnout Janssen, Marketing Director of GBC Commercial Laminating Solutions Europe explains. “In the industry we work for, speed is of the essence. As the turn-around times remain under constant pressure, more and more printers are taking on the finishing process in-house. For finishers, the time pressure is even higher. With lamination at the end of the production chain, they are investing in increasingly faster lamination equipment. At the same time, the digital printers are looking for an end-to-end solution. GBC constantly strives to anticipate and find innovative solutions by adding value to meet the specific needs of its customers in high-speed lamination. At drupa, GBC will introduce several new products in the high-speed lamination range.”
Mr. Janssen continues: “We noticed that the esthetics and functionality of printed matter has become vitally important for specifiers of lamination films, like designers and publishers. With its Scuff-Free™ and Lay-Flat® films, GBC is able to offer the perfect solution to this trend. Last but not least, GBC has always taken environmental issues very seriously. This is the reason the company has invested a lot of R&D resources in developing new eco-friendly laminating solutions. As a supplier of innovative laminating and finishing solutions, the company is able to serve a very large audience by adding value and fulfilling a large range of applications and requests.”
