Segbert Reaches Palletizer Milestone
March 31, 2015 By PrintAction Staff
Segbert GmbH & Co. KG of Ahaus, Germany, reached a milestone with the sale of its 100th layer palletizer robot to a printing company in North America. The order was for an MPA palletizer with the VVS Pre-Sorter and will be installed during the second quarter of 2015.
“We are very proud that we have achieved this milestone. I would like to thank our partners in the printing industry as well as all our employees here in Ahaus, we could not have done this without them,” said Klaus Segbert, Managing Director of Segbert. “We are aware that the printing business is changing rapidly and while we continuously improve our current products we are also developing new solutions for areas like digital printing and packaging.“
The first-ever Segbert palletizer line in North America was a ZPA that was installed at Quad/Graphics in 2006. Today, Quad/Graphics is the largest Segbert customer worldwide. In addition to Quad/Graphics, Segbert’s variable-height systems have also recently been sold to leading printers like Fry Communications and TC Transcontinental Printing.
Segbert palletizers and stackers are used in more than 500 installations in pressrooms and binderies around the globe and can be customized to handle a range of printed products like newspapers, retail inserts, magazines, catalogues, loose signatures, logs of signatures, books and book blocks, and cartons.
