Standard Finishing Systems Will Feature Live Equipment Demos at Amplify Event

Amplify – the new, innovative showcase for the print finishing and embellishment industry– will spotlight innovation and technology in action with live equipment demos on the event floor.

The Association for PRINT Technologies (APTech) and the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) are pleased to announce the latest additions to the event floor from Standard Finishing Systems at Amplify, the Print Finishing & Embellishment Event, which is set for June 14-16 at the Minneapolis Convention Center.

Attendees are invited to visit the EO Johnson booth (authorized dealer of Standard Finishing Systems) to see live demonstrations of Horizon creasing, folding, and die cutting solutions. Front and center will be the Standard Horizon CRF-362 Creaser/Folder, designed to handle the unique requirements of creasing and folding digital color output across a wide range of light and heavy weight stocks, coated and uncoated. Booth 619 also will showcase the Standard Horizon RD-N4055 Rotary Die Cutter with the optional CSD-40RD card stacker. The die cutting system combines a high-capacity feeder, a single- or dual-magnetic cylinder die cutter, a specially designed separator, and an optional card stacker into a highly efficient, versatile system for operator-friendly production.

Exhibitors also will be able to demonstrate their equipment, products and services through onsite technology demonstrations and product spotlights in the Amplify Technology Zone, as well as their envelope, direct mail, and mailing solutions in the Mailing Pavilion.
