Prati, a manufacturer of converting equipment based in Marradi, Italy, has formed Prati Automation to manage the sales and services operations of the full range of Prati machines in the label and converting industry in US and Canada. Prati Automation will make its public debut at Labelexpo Americas.
“We are thrilled about our new partnership,” says Glen Morris, managing partner. “Prati and Prati Automation share the same values. We both wish to satisfy our customer needs through improved efficiency and by providing top-class quality. Prati has an excellent reputation for qualitative and innovative machines. I am convinced that they offer the best machines in their application segment.”
Prati Automation, located in South Indiana near Louisville, KY, USA, plans to establish a demo and service center.
“We already have four installations in North America of a VEGAplus Booklet converting line, a Jupiter inspection machine, a Saturn inspection machine with 100 percent security, and another Saturn equipped with inkjet print head for overprinting of variable data,” says Chiara Prati, sales director. “Customers are appreciating the variety of solutions we can offer in the end-line process of label production and the versatility of our systems. Hence, we see new market opportunities. The new company will certainly help us achieve our long-term goals of growth in all markets.”
Prati’s product line for self-adhesive label print-finishing includes machinery for inspection, diecutting, matrix waste removal, rewinding, slitting, and overprinting.
