Minneapolis, Minnesota - - Delta Industrial Services, Inc. unveiled several new process demonstrations
and hosted a variety of educational seminars during their Technology Showcase, which took place
March 31 – April 1, 2010. The two-day, customer-focused open house attracted over 120 visitors from
the United States, Canada, Mexico, Asia and the UK.

Delta, along with participation from key partners such as: 3M, Hewlett Packard, MGS Machine, LasX, International Financial Services, Innovize, Cognex, DMS Inc. and Rotometrics covered many aspects of web converting, packaging and finishing for digital print. The event kicked off with a welcome from Delta’s owner and president, Dave Schiebout, who discussed the Delta culture, which encourages innovation and teamwork in serving and providing the best solutions for our customers. Wendy Stromberg, Delta’s marketing manager and the MC of the event, discussed Delta’s dedication to confidentiality. The keynote speaker of the afternoon was converting industry expert, Timothy J. Walker. Walker discussed the importance of good tension control and uniform nipping. He also reviewed several best practices for measuring and maintaining contact tension control.

While the full speaking agenda was well received, the hands-on demonstrations helped customers fully grasp all the capabilities and flexibility that come from Delta solutions. Delta unveiled the Spectrum II finishing system, which provides huge benefits to the digital print finishing industry. Other demonstrations included Edge™ Laser Technology, which is perfect for cutting complex geometries, perforation and laser ablation. A Spectrum® Finishing System was set-up with a RotoMetrics "Multi Score" flex die to die-cut and score a custom carton which was designed by HP and printed on an HP Indigo, reflecting Delta’s dedication to Custom Engineering Solutions.

Medical, pharmaceutical and contract converters shared in the excitement with the Delta Mod-Tech® web converting system, running in-line with the Delta reciprocating heat-seal packager, teamed up with the MGS Vertical Counter/Stacker. The system ran a wound care product, which was then
heat-sealed in a foil pouch and stacked for cartoning. The combined system gave customers a good idea of the breadth of capabilities and integration possibilities you can have with a Delta machine.

Overall, attendees found this to be a very informative and exciting event. The speakers and the demonstrations both revealed the advantages of having Delta as a partner, who can give you the
edge you need.
