Ferrarini & Benelli to gain new experience as a digital exhibitor at the virtual Drupa

Ferrarini & Benelli is officially one of the exhibitors of Virtual Drupa, the digital version of the Drupa Exhibition taking place April 20-23.

In an effort to boost productivity and improve digital relations, the organisers have set up a digital version of the Drupa exhibition. Ferrarini & Benelli will have the opportunity to reach out to visitors, during and after the event itself.

At Virtual Drupa, Ferrarini & Benelli already has a virtual showroom, which showcases its top-selling treating stations: in addition to its POLIMETAL and IN AIR PLASMA treatment systems, Ferrarini & Benelli is going to present its latest and most innovative product: the EVO SMART DIGITAL GENERATOR.

Inside the virtual showroom, visitors can find information on the characteristics and differences marking our Corona and Plasma treating systems.

Amongst its best-selling products is POLIMETAL: a universal treating station for conductive and non-conductive materials, designed to treat plastic and metallised films, paper and laminates. It comes in four different models and is available both in a single-sided and double-sided version. It is equipped with a ceramic roller and ceramic electrodes and it is available with integrated motorisation, extended shaft for drive, pressure roller to avoid back-side treatment effects and idle rollers. The open design of the system eases all cleaning and routine maintenance operations.

The POLIMETAL series has been designed as the perfect solution for the numerous applications of the converting industry and it is perfectly adaptable to the specific needs of every customer.

IN AIR PLASMA treats both conductive and non-conductive materials: it solves the adhesion problems of three-dimensional plastic objects or small areas of two-dimensional plastic surfaces. In Air Plasma takes advantage of the properties of compressed air to direct plasma towards the portion of material needing to be treated; its implementation on folder-gluer lines activates the material’s surface before glue is applied, in order to allow high-quality gluing applications on plastic packages, plastic containers and laminated paper boxes manufactured by producers of plastic packaging.

In addition to being effective and time-saving, it is also environmentally-friendly, as it does not release ozone into the atmosphere.

Saving best for last, this year, Ferrarini & Benelli is set to launch its latest and most challenging innovation to date. EVO SMART is a new digital generator with a touch-screen display, which shows all the generator’s main parameters, immediately allowing for a user-friendly browsing.

Through the generator, remote real-time data monitoring is possible on every device of the customer, such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. Production data is collected by the generator and sent to the cloud for real-time monitoring and reporting. The information thus collected can be visualised online on every device. This generator is a state-of-the-art product and keeps up with the latest trends in terms of digitalisation and Industry 4.0.

Ferrarini & Benelli has exhibited at Drupa several times in the past and achieved positive results but this will be the first time it will showcase its ranges at the event digitally. The company said: “We are glad for this opportunity and excited for the possibilities this new digital era is going to bring.”
