Systems (AGS) terms the PrintPack as the sought after show with a lot of
expectations for the exhibitors. The recent edition which concluded in first
week of February has been a good show for AGS though expectations on visitors’
visit weren’t fully met this time.
“We were happy with the Footfall but the same could have been
much better,” says Vishnuu. “Printpack normally does not allow us any breathing
space during the show times but this time we surely had free time in between.
Sunday was the only day where it was really crowded but otherwise it was all ok,”
He however has no qualms about the duration of 6 days. “I
think based on the investment the exhibitors do 6 days is a reasonable good
time and I think it’s perfect,” opines Vishnuu.
AGS closed quite a few deals for their products at the
PrintPack 2019 showfloors. They also launched the New Exact Autoscan from
Xrite. “Exact Spectrodensitometer is a known name in the industry as the
Standard for measuring colour. The Same device has not been put on a track to
do Auto scanning of the control strip on the Offset press. This gives the
existing Exact users an opportunity to upgrade themselves to the Autotracking
method of measuring colour and this combined with our Ink Presetting and Closed
loop Control Software will be a formidable package for the customer,” explains
AGS also showcased their Sample Makers; the successful
machine has been installed at more than 80 customer locations so far. Also on
display were the solutions for the Print Inspection (Proof reading) from Tec 4
Check Germany, text verification tool for document checking from TVT, Laser
cutting systems, Proofing Solution from Colorgate Germany and the Flexo Plate
making solution from CST Germany. Apart from these, there was AGS’s newest
introduction for Water based Flexo printing machine for the corrugation
industry i.e SHCC.
AGS has attended about 7 PrintPack exhibitions and is quite satisfied with the 2019 participation. Vishnuu believes that despite the ups and downs and the present downward phase, Print is there to live and grow.
