Presence of Grafikontrol systems grows in America

Milan, December 1, 2016 – The recent participation in Labelexpo Americas was an opportunity for Grafikontrol to verify its position in the US market. Having already operated in the market for 35 years through OEMs and agents, in 2015 Grafikontrol opened an office in the US to handle sales and technical support. Sales have focused primarily in the converting sector and are increasing: today, the US is the second biggest market for Grafikontrol, accounting for around 20% of its turnover.

Grafikontrol Sales Director and Partner Paolo De Grandis identifies the success factors which have led to a 10% year-on-year increase over the past two years: “Following the launch of the new TQC-360° product line, we concentrated on ensuring the continuous training of our technical support personnel, particularly by using a remote connection system and setting up a warehouse with a permanent stock of spare parts to ensure prompt service in case of emergency. This was a crucial factor that was highly appreciated by customers. The direct commercial presence was also an important factor as it conveyed the company’s dynamism and guaranteed its involvement in many industry events, including FTA and GAA (Gravure Association of the Americas), of which Grafikontrol is a member.”

Grafikontrol’s drupa stand sees boom of visitors from the United States and the Middle East 

New PROCHECK system for print defect traceability and new MATRIX and LYNEX inspection systems achieve success in packaging markets

Milan, June 29th, 2016 – Grafikontrol’s participation at drupa proved to be one of the most successful, with hundreds of visitors from all over the world. Grafikontrol showed its leadership by presenting a complete range of quality control systems centered on the TQC-360° platform.  These products offer continuous and complete inspection throughout the printing and post-printing process. These solutions have been adopted by major industry manufacturers including UTECO, Lombardi Converting and Amut Dolci Bielloni who installed the Grafikontrol systems on their printing presses at drupa.

Visitors were particularly impressed with the PROCHECK system, the newest TQC-360° product presented at the show. “This innovative defect tracking system, which is currently patent pending, tracks the exact location of every defect detected during printing and lamination. This information is then sent to the slitting department and allows the operator to remove defects by automatically controlling the machine stoppage. Until now, it was the missing link in the total quality process, comments Paolo De Grandis, sales director and business partner at Grafikontrol. Regarding the new philosophy adopted in the development of the TQC-360° products, De Grandis elaborated: “it’s a unique solution on the market and an indispensable aid which any efficient pressroom must have.”
