Having first attended IPEX in 1980 and not missed a single show since, exhibitor Col-Tec (Collating Technology), is set to return to IPEX this year to present one of its latest products. Reflecting on previous successes at IPEX exhibitions, market leader Col-Tec is looking forward to similar activities in 2017, discussing collating technology, manufacturing and solutions, as well as interacting with customers and its worldwide distributor network.

Col-Tec will be presenting and operating its latest smart collating ‘Signature Machine’, equipped with its Intelligent Data Collating (IDC) Software. Unlike typical collating applications where the collated set is repeated numerous times, IDC delivers versatility at the press of a button, by allowing many different patterns and combinations of sets to follow each other.

The machine is known to have a number of other key features that will be of interest to many printers attending the show. The product includes deep pile feeding and ultra sonic detectors. Since 1975, Col-Tec has been at the forefront in the manufacture of horizontal suction feed collators.

Col-Tec’s Paul Bailey, said, “Showing off our fantastic equipment is important to us, and therefore demonstrating the benefits of the IDC software in our largest target market on our stand at IPEX will give us the opportunity to do so.”

IPEX is the UK’s longest running international print show. The event takes place from 31st October to 3rd November 2017 at the NEC in Birmingham. IPEX 2017 will be a showcase of innovation, technology and print in action, covering a range of applications including printing, software, digital, and finishing. Online visitor registration is open and IPEX is free to attend, visitors are advised to register early to avoid the queues and take advantage of travel discounts and event updates.
