Exhibiting at Sign & Digital UK (April 19-21, 2016 at the NEC Birmingham on stand K50 Hall 17) for the fifth successive year, finishing equipment specialist Friedheim International will be highlighting the capabilities of a Lasercomb ProDigi NEO 2517 multi-functional digital cutting system on its stand.

This model is one in a range of larger format machines specifically developed by Lasercomb for the high demands of the signage, packaging and display industries.

On the ProDigi NEO a new front-end PC featuring a colour touch screen allows the operator to choose between automatic or manual modes, as well as accessing the tool database. The PC also provides operational diagnosis.

A modular tool concept is a key feature of the ProDigi NEO multi-functional digital cutting system, and the machine being demonstrated on the stand will incorporate a 1 kW milling spindle with tooling for handling several different types of materials, as well as an oscillating cutting unit.

Alongside this, Friedheim will demonstrate how an Audionpack H25 Seal/Shrink ‘Combi’ wrapping machine can provide ‘added value’ opportunities.

Commenting on the company’s involvement, Roger Cartwright, national sales manager, said: “We are very pleased to be supporting the Sign & Digital event again this year as it is the perfect environment in which to highlight to visitors what versatile and highly cost-effective solutions can be achieved for their business activities by using a Lasercomb ProDigi NEO digital cutting system and/or Audiopack Combi wrapping machine.”

Along with details of the rest of the Lasercomb and Audion machine ranges, Friedheim will also be able to provide information on a wide variety of alternative practical, efficient and cost-beneficial finishing processes and solutions from the other companies within its Converting Division – KAMA (die-cutters and folder-gluers), Kohmann (window patchers, Pick & Place, PrintChecker and SpeedPlacer), VEGA Group (folder-gluers) and STOCK (wide format board mounting & laminating) – as well as from its other divisions covering commercial print, digital print, binding and packaging.
