Keeping it real: Apex, IFS and others team up for open house event
Apex Digital Graphics and Intelligent Finishing Systems (IFS) have announced the return of their ‘Real Print and Finish’ open house event on April 17, 18 and 19, 2018 at Apex’s premises in Hemel Hempstead.
Visitors can see an array of equipment including an SRA1 RMGT (Ryobi) press with live demonstrations of LED-UV drying during the event.
Apex managing director Bob Usher said, ‘ Ryobi was a pioneer of LED-UV litho technology, and maintains the leading position both globally and in the UK, where we have installed more LED-UV machines than any rival. It is a must see for any litho printer interested in the application of LED technology.’
Apex will also show newly launched CTP systems from Cron in various configurations, and digital printing equipment from Konica Minolta, plus full workflow solutions.
IFS will be showing a huge range of equipment from Horizon, including two new machines first shown at Ipex 2017, the Stitchliner Mark III saddlestitching line, and the BQ-480 perfect binder. IFS is also showing the newly arrived HT-1000V variable three knife trimmer which can be used both in line with Horizon perfect binders or as a standalone machine. The line up will also include Foliant laminators with foiling capability.
IFS managing director Bryan Godwyn said, ‘We are looking forward to another collaboration with our neighbours Apex, taking advantage of our proximity and the synergy between the two companies. The event has a hands on no nonsense approach combined with a relaxed environment which visitors tell us they appreciate.’
More partners are expected to announce their participation in the coming weeks. Already confirmed are mailroom equipment specialists KAS, paper supplier Premier and the IPIA who will offer free consultations with business experts via pre-booked appointments.
