The Postpress Alliance has decided to embark on a new path together. Digitalization is the central topic this year. It is therefore not surprising that the first “Alliance Days”, a virtual Open House, will be held from November 24-27, 2020 and will serve as a platform for the companies to present the planned innovations to the public in a timely manner.
“We need and seek contact to our business partners”, says the marketing team of the partner companies, “and are happy to be able to launch something so new in such a short time. It is uncharted territory for everyone involved. Neither we nor our dealers and end customers have much experience in this encounter on a virtual level. This concept means a lot to our management. They are firmly convinced that, even after Corona, targeted marketing concepts will require this duality of virtual appearances in combination with analog physical events.”
The resulting virtual showroom of BaumannPerfecta, Bograma, H+H, Hohner, MBO and Wohlenberg will offer visitors, after prior registration, a virtual visit with a tour of the machines and a lot of detailed information for four days. On the other hand, interested parties will have the direct opportunity to make an appointment for individual live demonstrations from the showrooms at the respective locations of the four companies.
Bograma’s competence is die-cutting. On show will be the new Automated Playing Card Production Line for die-cutting, stacking and cellophane wrapping of playing card decks, a double die-cutting line for die-cutting and stacking folding boxes using the new “first crease, then die-cut” principle, and the compact and attractively priced BSR 550 basic die-cutter for cost-effective production of short and medium runs.
H+H provides insights into the world of mailings, as well as innovations in processing in the market segments of pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, chemicals, food and agricultural products.
At the “Alliance Days” in the year of the company’s 90th anniversary, Hohner will present for the first time the Hohner Hybrid Stitcher “HHS Futura”, a machine with up to five functions for individual brochure production. It can be flexibly expanded at any time and is the answer to the current topic of constantly changing market developments, as it even meets future needs and tasks. Also on display will be the HSB 9.000 saddle stitcher and Hohner’s flagship, the fully automated HSB 13.000 which features many innovations with real added value such as the MIS ability to integrate a new, freely positionable plano sheet feeder (PAL) and the separate head-foot adjustment on the trimmer.
MBOdemonstrates the robotics sector. Using two folding machines handled by a single operator, the enormous reduction in work relief made possible by modern robot technology will be illustrated. An MBO CoBo-Stack is used behind each folding machine. The collaborating robot handles the manual placement of signature stacks from the delivery onto the pallet, leaving the operator more time for administrative tasks.
baumannperfectais the name of the new brand of the Baumann Group, which resulted from the brand merger of baumannwohlenberg and PERFECTA. It combines the best of two brands and technologies and proves this with the presentation of the latest developments at the virtual Open House – with the premiere of the world’s first fully automatic jogging and cutting system for completely unmanned processing. Further highlights are offered by the new machine generations in the areas of jogging, cutting and robotics.
With the BASA evolution baumannperfecta introduces the new generation of the Baumann Automatic Shaker System (BASA). The compact and modular solution is characterized among other things by the new, sustainable drive technology and offers in the basic equipment the inexpensive entry into automatic shaking.
The latest generation of cutting machines will also be presented. The machines appear in a new design and offer some innovations, such as the new control generation Cutpit and an improved cutting cell for significantly longer knife life. In addition, a further innovation for the automation of the cutting process will be presented in combination with a further developed robotics solution.
Wohlenberg presents the ideal constellation for the production of short runs with the Quickbinder Edition Digital and the threshing cutter D09 . The perfect binders from Wohlenberg offer a unique variety and flexibility in application technology.
MIS networking with open interfaces will be jointly presented as a special topic.
The responsible marketing team of the Postpress Alliance is also certain that the Postpress Alliance virtual showroom will continue to develop into a popular and well-frequented touchpoint with an informative character after the “Alliance Days” and are eagerly awaiting the kick-off on November 24th, 2020.
