Massimo Lombardi, director of international sales at Lombardi Converting Machinery, commented: ‘Lombardi has developed several new technologies in the last year. All these technologies cover a wide range of automation systems, such as electronic register control, format correction and 100 percent quality control. All this following our constructive philosophy based on the modularity and variety of solutions. Not only flexo groups but also, in the last year, Lombardi added important modular solutions to narrow web machines, such as hot stamping, screen printing, semi-rotary die-cutting and typical modules for label and packaging industry, as well as hybrid flexo and digital printing.’
Perego joined Lombardi at Labelexpo India 2018, and said: ‘We had a very crowded stand. Some machines were sold and visitors came not only from India but also from Malaysia, and this is a clear indicator of the image of Lombardi Converting Machinery in the world and in Asia in particular.’
He continued: ‘At Labelexpo India 2018 we sold some machines not only to Indian companies but also to other countries. Here it was confirmed the importance of having a great variability of configurations and modules. This gives us the real possibility to offer customers even with the most different needs, exactly the lines for them.’
Lombardi is already preparing innovations to show at Labelexpo Europe 2019, which it promises, ‘people will talk about.’ It is also expecting to make an additional appointment to coincide with the show.
