Among these were Memostick, StreamStitch and MultiLog, and it also had the CEO from Kolbus on its stand explaining the new alliance that has produced a new process with engineers and marketers from the two companies joining forces.
MemoStick is more commonly known as Post-It notes, and Ferag has come up with a system that allows the re-adherable notes to be attached to newspapers and magazines, at full production speed.
The company claims that advertisers are extremely keen to use the MemoStrick for their product promotion, and Ferag claims that they are an ideal solution for multi-layered advertising, whether cards, zig-zag folds, unrolling units or most importantly samples.
StreamStitch is a solution for integrated stitching in the conveying process, and is aimed at exploiting unused press capacity through the effective use of commercial like products such as magazines, TV listings or advertising supplements.
StreamStitch is connected to the conveyor from above, while from beneath the staple closing sequence is supported by an independent running pressure pad. Ferag says the StreamStitch allows the economical conversion of a newspaper finishing line into a stitching line, and so facilitates the production of the commercial like products.
Finally from Ferag is MultiLog, which the company says redefines log formation. MultiLog applies a completely new process for log formation, carried out not under high-pressure force, but with products that are gathered loose.
