BW Papersystems at drupa 2016: leading brands for stationery, digital print converting, and folio sheeting united for the first time
PHILLIPS, WI, USA – March 02, 2016 – BW Papersystems and its brands MarquipWardUnited, WillPemcoBielomatik, Kugler-Womako and BW Bielomatik will present its wide range of solutions for stationery and digital print converting as well as for folio sheeting at drupa 2016. The world’s largest printing trade fair, will take place May 31 to June 10, 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Under the motto “We are Paper Converting. We are BW Papersystems.” and on 458 sqm, in hall 10 at booth D20, the companies for the first time will be exhibiting together as a group.
After the merger of MarquipWardUnited, E.C.H. Will, Pemco and Kugler-Womako in 2014 and the following acquisition of the paper processing business of Bielomatik in 2015, BW Papersystems now offers market leading technology for folio-size, cut-size and digital-size sheeting and packaging of paper, board and other materials, plus stationery, passport production and specialized paper converting applications. For the corrugating industry, full corrugators and finishing equipment such as flexo folder gluers and rotary die cutters are available.
One highlight on BW Papersystems’ booth will be the live demonstration of an eCon sheeter. The eCon folio sheeter, that has been developed using advanced design methodologies, offers high-quality twin synchronous sheeting at a price level never previously available from a leading manufacturer. Since its launch 21 months ago, the eCon sheeter has recorded excellent results with 23 machines sold in North and Latin America and Europe. Its attractive price level assures a quick ROI for printers and folding carton manufacturers while they are able to reduce inventory, eliminate pile turning, lower material cost and increase press performance.
“The eCon sheeter has really found its place in the market, delivering second-to-none cut quality and accuracy as well as ease of operation and maintenance,” says Steve Brimble, Senior VP Worldwide Sheeter Sales. “At printing and folding carton plants, the breakdown of a sheeter can quickly shut down production. The eCon makes no compromise on reliability and remote diagnostics and has the backing of the global BW Papersystems spares and service network. This has been a big factor in most orders.”
Also demonstrated on the stand will be a Wrapmatic GREC automatic folio ream wrapper. This mid-range model offers the perfect flexible solution to paper converters and small mills wishing to produce high-quality wrapped reams – wrapped in traditional poly-coated moisture barrier paper or Kraft paper. Quick size changes make the GREC ideal for handling small orders.
Visitors will also be able to discover the greatly enlarged portfolio for stationery, book binding, digital print and book converting and RFID applications from WillPemcoBielomatik, BW Bielomatik and Kugler-Womako. For the first time, the best technologies from former E.C.H. Will and the paper processing business of Bielomatik as well as from Kugler-Womako are combined. Customers can now select the ideal machinery for entry-level up to highly automated applications. A wide range of high-quality solutions is available for producing exercise books or glued, plastic, wire or even paper bound products. Solutions for the fast growing digital print market include flexible digital size sheeters, book-on-demand binding machines for ultra-low volume book production and an innovative single-sheet book converting line for high volumes. Specialized equipment for the converting of RFID technology as well as passport manufacturing lines complete the impressive technology lineup under one banner: BW Papersystems.
