Mark Daws and the Currie Group invite industry to ABG event

Mark Daws, director – Labels & Packaging ANZ for Currie Group, encourages all packaging business owners to attend the company’s ABG By Appointment event in Melbourne following the success of Sydney’s ‘Sign & Display By Appointment’.

Daws said the event allows business owners to speak directly with experts and decision-makers to explore tailored solutions aligned with their specific business needs. It also offers private and customised demonstrations for unique business requirements and creative label-converting solutions.

“When you’re talking about business growth and capital investment, there’s no ‘one size fits all solution’,” said Daws.

“By creating dedicated time slots where we can focus on the needs and aspirations of a particular business, we are better able to concentrate on the key points that will answer their requirements.”

The Melbourne showcase will present a comprehensive end-to-end label production and converting workflow featuring solutions from the UK-based A B Graphic International (ABG), including the award-winning ABG Digicon Series 3 and ABG DigiLite 3 digital finishing systems and an ABG SRI3 slitter rewinder inspection system.

Daws specifically praised the ABG Digicon Series 3, which is known for its versatility in handling all types of requirements. The showcased machine will include various high-end options such as hot foil and embossing, hi-build screen, lamination, and die-cutting. The modularity of the Digicon S3 enables users to customize a finishing solution precisely tailored to the needs of customers.

“The ABG Digicon Series 3 really is a flagship digital finishing system to suit even the most complex label applications,” said Daws.

Additionally, the exhibition will feature the ABG DigiLite 3 as an entry-level model suitable for newcomers to the market and established label houses alike.

The ABG SRI3 slitter rewinder inspection system will also be showcased, offering advanced 100% inspection capabilities crucial for applications like pharmaceutical labels and security products.

“Whatever the job, quality control is vital, and this is where the ABG SRI3 is invaluable. With its advanced, 100 per cent inspection camera system, it can pick up even the smallest variations, from missing text or graphic elements to registration or colour discrepancies, to ensure absolute accuracy and consistent quality every time,” said Daws.

The end-to-end workflow will incorporate the HP Indigo 6K Digital Press and be driven by HP’s PrintOS, demonstrating a seamlessly integrated and automated workflow management system from job receipt to production and delivery.

The event will be complemented by a team of experts, including ABG Sales Manager Mark Hyde and local product specialists from Currie Group and other partners.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have outstanding relationships with OEM partners like ABG, as we do with our customers.

“It’s these connections that really drive success, and we can’t wait to bring it all together in Melbourne this March,” said Daws.

Bookings are now open for sessions scheduled from Tuesday, March 5, to Thursday, March 7, 2024, at the Currie Group headquarters and showroom in Guest Street, Hawthorn. For more information, visit:
