Impel-Welbound showcased its technological prowess at the recently concluded Pamex 2020 and live demonstrated its complete line of products, machines and consumables related to book binding.
“We did a lot of things in the last one to one-and-a-half years in terms of consolidating our efforts in book binding. Pamex is one of those shows where one can display the latest offering, and that is what we did this year,” said Pallippuram Sajith of Impel-Welbound.
At Pamex, some of the highlights from Impel-Welbound were 2,000 books per hour binder that can be connected inline and a 3-knife trimmer from its own portfolio; hot case making machine from Rokin of China; thread sewing machine from Bosid of China; and insert folding machine from GUK, among others.
“In an effort to bring the complete line of solutions to the market, we have not only worked on local manufacturing but have also tied up with global partners to address certain areas where we are not very strong,” Sajith added.
Talking about the 2,000 books per hour binder, which was the centerpiece at the show, Sajith said that this was part of the company’s Freedom Series which offers customers a lot of flexibility. The idea behind launching the 2,000 books per hour binder was to address the need of customers who do not have production requirement to go for the 4,000 books per hour binder.
“The 2,000 books per hour binder offers the flexibility of the Freedom Series as the customer can start with the binder and a gatherer or a trimmer and then as the customer moves along, they can invest according to their needs. This is for the first time that this kind of modularization is available to customers for a machine of this size. Earlier you had this kind of flexibility for 8,000 or 10,000 books per hour machines, which involved huge investment,” Sajith explained.
Commenting on the response seen at Pamex, Sajith said that the company has managed to finalized a number of deals. “Ours was one of the busiest stands at Pamex. We had visitors mainly from north and west India and we managed to finalize a number of deals. However, not only Pamex we have had a good year in 2019 as well when we sold 160 machines,” Sajith concluded.
