Welcome to Drupa. We are here in Hall 1 at the KAMA stand with Alexandra Marchand, who joined KAMA last week and is attending Drupa for the first time. Alexandra Marchand has a background in the printing industry, including four years with a paper manufacturer. KAMA, a German company, showcases two machines: a folder gluer and a cutting, hot stamping, and embossing machine. KAMA's machines are known for their short set-up times and ease of use. The folder gluer includes options like width and length registration and a camera system for quality control, making it ideal for markets like pharmaceuticals. The machine also supports braille embossing across its width. Through advanced engineering, KAMA focuses on automation and simplicity and offers robotic solutions to minimize manual labor and repetitive movements. Alexandra Marchand expressed her enthusiasm for the graphic arts and confidence in KAMA's innovative technology.

This is the second time Editor Morten B. Reitoft has had the pleasure of talking to Marco Hanisch - and this time again about the thin carriers. We say foils, but it should be metalization, as the foil is only the carrier of the metal. By reducing the thickness of the carrier, the rolls can hold more metalization, and therefore already a saving in space and transport. Still, in this film, Marco Hanisch explains that the new thinner carrier also offers customers a productivity gain - but see the interview yourself!
