Laser die-cutting machine maker opens office in Chile

Grafisk Maskinfabrik, a Danish maker of laser converting equipment, has opened an office in Santiago, Chile to provide quicker technical support and spare parts to customers in Latin America.

Santiago, Chile -- Grafisk Maskinfabrik (GM), a Denmark-based maker of laser converting and other finishing equipment, has opened an office in Santiago, Chile to provide quicker technical support and spare parts to customers in Latin America. The move follows a growing number of installations in the region, with digital converting systems for both label and folding carton applications in Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Brazil; sales to Argentina and Peru are anticipated in the near future.

Label converters in Latin America often work 24/7, so GM's presence in Chile eliminates the problem of time difference between this region and the company's home in Denmark, as well as overcoming language and cultural barriers. The Latin America market offers good growth for GM with the increasing numbers of digital presses from HP Indigo, Xeikon and other brands being installed in the region.

GM's Latin America team has over 20 years of experience in the graphic arts business in digital printing solutions as well as finishing equipment. Besides digital converting lines including laser die-cutting system and converting/finishing machines, GM also provides ancillary equipment including roll lifters, slitter rewinders, revision equipment, core cutters, laminators, and more.
