W+D and Illies organise open house in Japan
With motto ‘Tomoni kaizen – improving together’, Winkler+Dünnebier (W+D), W+D Direct Marketing Solutions and Illies, their representative recently organised an open house in Tokyo, inviting their current and potential customers. For the first time since the takeover of Buhrs ITM in October, the two W+D companies joined forces to present their innovative technology solutions designed for producing, printing and inserting envelopes and pockets.
Attendees had an opportunity to experience three solutions under actual production conditions. The W+D 320 BE, a modular machine for producing printed envelopes and pockets with windows, was shown for the first time with a handling robot at the blank feed. The W+D 232, the new two-colour offset printing machine for envelopes and pockets, features short set-up times, excellent printing quality and user friendly. The third solution presented was the W+D BB700 pocket, a multi-format, high-performance inserting system, especially designed to process large products, including pockets in C4 format (K2), which are particularly popular in Japan.
