“As our brand grows globally so does the need to service and support our equipment. The addition of Dave gives us
technical expertise in Europe and Asia along with sales support for our worldwide network of distributors. We are
excited to welcome him to the Spartanics family,” comments Paul Dirienzo, Spartanics VP of engineering.
Birch offers an extensive electrical and mechanical engineering background. He was involved in the design and
evolution of the Digicon Series, the world’s first digital converting machines, with Partoria Engineering. Previously,

Spartanics provides roll and sheet fed laser cutting solutions to the label and packaging markets. Spartanics recently
unveiled Fastline Laser Cutting Software Technology, a 1-click prepress system designed to dramatically reduce the time
involved in the extraction of die lines from laser cut and print files. The Fastline Laser Cutting Technology is compatible
with all Spartanics laser cutting systems, including the L350 Laser Cutting System and the INX NW140 UV Inkjet Digital
At the 2014 Labelexpo Americas Show in Chicago, Spartanics is expected to debut the Fastline Laser Cutting Software along with a new hybrid converting line.
