Elitron’s rising star shines bright at FEFCO Seminar in Wien
More than a thousand attendees gathered at the Messe Wien Congress Centre in Vienna on October 11- 13 for FEFCO’s Technical Seminar where the latest technologies in the sector were showcased. The FEFCO Technical Seminar is indeed a highlight of the industry’s calendar, offering corrugated manufacturers and suppliers some of their most productive innovations and new business development activity. The Vienna edition was the most popular in the last ten years: there were 126 stands and 87 exhibitors on hand, a new record.
On such an important stage Elitron, at its very first appearance, could not have hoped for a better outcome: showcasing the benefits of Kombo TAV-R, its high-automated digital cutting solution dedicated to the needs of the corrugated industry, Elitron has been awarded as the most inspiring newcomer.
The award committee stated during their announcement that the reasons for the assignment were the fact that Elitron made the step from a being local supplier of digital cutting tables for the Italian Leather goods industry and experienced an evolution to become a worldwide partner for the corrugated industry. Instead of focusing on the low level sample cutting tables, Elitron has been capable of taking the risk to invest in a high level, fully automatized line for the corrugated packaging industry: Kombo TAV-R. This line is giving opportunities to the industry as a whole to develop and experiment new business models where integrating digital printing with digital cutting becomes seamless and effortless. Thanks to Kombo TAV-R there is now a solution that can bridge the gap between non-automatized sample tables and high-end, high-volume die cutters. The installed devices have by now proved their performance and are opening opportunities for the industry to effectively tackle short runs.
As its presentation stated, for digital cutting being no longer the bottleneck of the digital printing production chain there was just a missing link which has now been filled by Elitron and Kombo TAV-R: the only digital cutting solution able to effectively manage a 24/7 workflow of short runs completely unattended.
