The label and package printing industry predicts what will be big in 2018
Monomatic, a specialist in the supply of nonstop unwind and rewind equipment, has agreed an alliance with KTI, a manufacturer of automatic splicers, turret rewinders and other web converting equipment, for the representation of its products in Europe.
Monomatic was looking for a way to increase the product offering to its current customer base in Europe. Monomatic has been around since the 1950s with a strong worldwide presence notably in the packaging field, and offers products very similar to KTI’s current product line, the main differences between the two product lines being size, speed and customizable options. KTI offers nonstop unwinds and rewinds with roll diameters up to 50in (1270mm), web widths up to 72in (1829mm) and speeds up to 1000ft/min (305/min). Monomatic equipment reaches roll diameters up to 86in (2200mm), web widths up to 118in (3000mm) and speeds of up to 3280ft/min (1000m/min). The standard KTI product lines currently available are said to complement Monomatic’s equipment offering to customers and a more customizable product for unique custom applications.
Freddy Mermin, sales manager for Monomatic, will take on the role of European sales manager for KTI equipment through Monomatic.
KTI is similarly now representing and selling the Monomatic product line throughout the North American market.
