In June 2022 Heaford’s Italian agent Simonazzi organised an open house at its headquarters in Pessano con Borgano, Milan to present its range of products and technologies for narrow web printing. This informal event saw 25 label manufacturers participate and experience live demonstrations of the latest technology.
With the label sector growing rapidly, and with the void left by Labelexpo being cancelled, Simonazzi were prompted to organize their own open house to present their range of products and technologies dedicated to printing labels. Simonazzi, a dynamic family business, is a reseller for the Italian market for 11 multinational companies, leaders in their respective sectors, and thanks to qualified technicians, offer a pre and post sales consultancy service.
Simonazzi represent Heaford in Italy, Enrico Albani from Simonazzi commented “For flexible packaging Heaford offers a practically automatic system, where the only action that the operator must perform is to place the plate on the two manipulators over the cameras, which in turn, reading the register marks, will position themselves in register to begin the plate mounting process.
In the case of the label model that is proposed in the 500and 700 format, we are in the presence of semi-automatic technology, which only requires positioning the register marks on the horizontal line of the screen and that’s it.
We have customers who with one plate mounting system easily mount plates for three printing presses,” adds Albani, recalling that “in a sector such as label printing where there are several daily job changes, the speed factor is very important. then certainly the price is important, but it is not the first discriminating factor.”
During the open house Simonazzi offered live demonstrations. For Simonazzi this was their first event dedicated to the world of labels, the experiment was certainly positive and the customer feedback they received will ensure the specialist flexo printing reseller plan other events in the future.
Congratulations Enrico and Luciana n a very successful first open house, here’s to many more!
