Brandtjen & Kluge, Inc. recently exhibited at the largest Russian graphics tradeshow “POLYGRAPHINTER 2005” October 10-16 at the Crocus Expo in Moscow.
For our Russian distributor, VIP Systems, the show was very successful. During the six day event VIP demonstrated live integral book cover production on the Kluge UniFold automatic folder gluer. Integral book covers are a new type of soft/hard hybrid book cover. The soft cover is re-enforced on each of the four edges providing durability advantages similar to a hard book cover while maintaining the weight, flexibility and low material cost of soft book covers. As a result of this design, integral book covers are becoming an extremely popular application in Russia, and enabled us to sell the Kluge UniFold folder gluer directly from the show floor. A large number of additional UniFold folder gluer leads were also generated through this production format.
Although we only demonstrated a single Kluge product at Polygraphinter 2005 as well as multimedia demonstrations and literature distribution, many leads were gathered for the Kluge EHD Series foil stamping, embossing and die cutting press. The EHD will be demonstrated live at “LabelShow”, April 11 – 15, 2006, Sokolniki Culture & Exhibition Centre, Moscow, Russia, Pav.4, st.P 5. Mark your calendars!
