New product launches

PLASTGrommet will be showcasing “The Banner Finishing Factory”. A complete, end-to-end solution for wide format printers that creates an optimized finishing workflow, from the printer to the finished banner ready for shipping.

The operator will unload the printed roll from the printer with the new media lifter “Compact e-Lifter Pro” that allows a single operator to move media rolls up to 300 Kg.

The printed banner roll will be taken to the new version of the banner finishing system “All In One” to finish the long sides of the banners. This in-line solution combines hemming welding, eyeleting and slitting in a single operation, fully automated with vision system to detect eyelet and cut marks.

Banners already cut-to-size will be taken to the new “Finishing Station” where short sides will be finished by the operator. This machine combines in a single station hemming, welding and eyeleting, reducing the space and handling required. The new “Roll Rewinder” will help operators to optimize the rolling process and prepare finished banners for shipping seamlessly

“The Banner Finishing Factory” will show customers how to achieve higher quality banners with faster finishing times all without increasing the number of operators required.
