Good deals in the Far East

Dresden, Dongguan, 18.04.2019 - Red is the decisive colour at Print China 2019, as sales transactions are marked and displayed in red at trade fairs in the "Middle Kingdom". Many red signs were glued at the KAMA booth with partner YouPrint Digital Technology. "We are very pleased with the order intake at Print China and have sold products from the entire portfolio," says CEO Marcus Tralau. "There is also an extensive list of leads.” Sales include the KAMA ProCut die cutting and embellishment machines, the ProFold 74 for folding and gluing and the complete solution for folding carton production - "our largest package with die cutter, inline stripper and the fully automatic folding carton gluer KAMA FF 52i", says Tralau.

For the first time in Dongguan, the Dresden-based machine manufacturer presented the customised solution for the production of folding boxes in small and medium runs as well as personalised runs in digital printing. Seven contracts have been concluded for the CPX rapid positioning system alone. "There is a lot of finishing going on in Asia and the system for positioning clichés can be used not only for KAMA finishing solutions but also for other hot foil stamping machines," explains Tralau. The software and ease of use of the CPX reduce set-up times by up to 90 %.

"China has now become an important market for us alongside Europe," concludes Tralau. "This is remarkable and also makes us proud, because it is here that the competition for our products is fiercest.” The modular design of the machines with numerous retrofittable options, the unique solid construction and the associated permanently high precision are appreciated. Last but not least, this means a long service life even when used intensively. Including the Hong Kong special economic zone, Dresden-based KAMA had already installed the 50th unit in China at the end of 2018.
