The APR Athos
Graph-Pak, a trusted source of systems and consumables for laminating, printing, packaging and converting since 2006, will bring a range of ‘blue chip’ systems to its PacPrint stand, representing manufacturers including APR, D&K, Rollem USA and Busch.
Tom Ralph, founder and managing director of Graph-Pak, says the company is looking forward to bringing the market up to date with the latest releases from its principals – and to reconnect with businesses as they look to re-equip for the future.
“During the pandemic, our partners have continued to evolve, develop and expand their ranges of equipment, systems and consumables and we are delighted to be bringing many of those new releases to the show for industry businesses to see, first-hand, including box gluers, taping, laminating, banding and die-cutting solutions.”
APR Solutions will be launched to the Oceania market at PacPrint, bringing a team of product experts to talk to visitors about market-leading solutions including the Box Plus 2 compact hybrid folder gluer and three ATHOS taping machines for packaging and e-commerce operations.
APR industrial tape application solutions on show will include the semi-automatic Athos which can apply tapes including TNT and PVC, to banner, acrylic, transfer, foams up to 3mm, Rissband and also tape VHB for automotive applications, to a huge range of supports, from paper and corrugated cardboard, to acrylic, PVC and plastic, and even wood and aluminium.
“The Mini Athos [pictured above] as its name suggests, a smaller model which is cost-effective and versatile entry-level solution to apply double-sided tapes including banner tapes, PVC, TNT, acrylic and transfer, while the Athos Plus is a higher-volume, higher-speed option which efficiently applies double-sided, acrylic, foam, PVC and eTear tapes to any type of paper, cardboard, profiles, wood and aluminium,” says Ralph.
“With a removable, fully-automatic feeder, it’s ideal for even the longest runs of products from labels to bank notes, and still flexible enough to handle niche or multi-layered custom jobs by simply swapping to manual feed.”
Ralph says his team is looking forward to connecting with the industry, in-person. “It’s been a long lead-up to this show, but we can’t wait.”
Graph-Pak will be on Stand D08, just inside the entry doors at PacPrint, which will co-locate with Visual Impact Melbourne and the Label & Packaging Expo at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 28 June to 1 July this year.
